When you guys do header lenght testing, what kind of tubing are you using as temporary coupler between header and tuned pipe ?

Re: Header lenght testing

As long as it isn't permanent, I don't waste the $$ on anything high temp... just the regular black radiator hose has worked in the past for me. The black stuff is also a bit more flexible to be able to slip over the headers.
