Would I be able to use EMT conduit as exhaust tubing? The reason is I work for an electrical company and would have access to a very nice hydraulic bender.

Its on my Dads 65 Plymouth and its been there for near 10 years now, so I'd say he got away with it:) He's also an electrician who has access to pipe benders

Isn't the largest common size only about 2"? I know it comes in a size as large as 4", but I'm not sure if you'd have a bending die (sp?) for the larger sizes. Also the bends are usually quite large in radius, which may make fitting the system difficult.

At any rate, no reason it shouldn't work. Judging by this document:

The wall thickness is about on par with what is commonly used for exhaust.

Let us know how you make out with it. :)

The largest size manual benders can do is 2". I have access to a hydraulic bender that can do up to 4". Before all that though I better swap in a turbo engine to make the whole thing worthwhile... :)
