    316?

    Isn't 304/304L better than 316/316L for a high temp turbo manifold? (better at handling heat) plus being cheaper. I'm assuming at sch10 or thicker though, the 316 would be fine if at hand?

    sch30 is WAY thicker than 10 no? is weight a concern at that size?

    a thinner tube with bracing would have to weigh a good amount less than sch30, let alone 10?
