Default 8V92 turbo pipes

Hey all you 8V92 guys,and maybe you 6V92 guys.
I have been working with a company to make the turbo pipes for the engines.
I found a company that will make them out of stainless,and they can make both sides,the side with the bellows and the plain side.
I'm not sure if the pipes are the same for the 6V92 but i think they are.
I have to get 10 of each side made to get any kind of a fair deal.

Does anybody have interest in these pipes?
I had to get a used one a few weeks ago and prices for used were $250 each (bellows side) or new old stock for $500 each.
We found one (used) for $150 and that got us going,but theres not many good used ones left.

I think the bellows side in stainless will be $300 ,the other side cheaper.

Anyway that we can confirm that the 6V is the same? If so, I quite possibly would be interested.

richard,i can ship you a 8V bellows pipe,if you want to compare it.

We really do need to check for fit.
I have a used bellows pipe here for an 8V.
I don't have the other side.

Just so I'm clear on which pipes. You're talking about the pipes not shown in this photo. The ones that are held onto the turbo by the Marmon clamps? The pipes you have to hammer on for hours to get off the turbos? If those are indeed the pipes, will having them made of stainless make them any more brittle from heat cycles and subject to breaking or any more difficult to separate from the turbos?
I'll send photos of my pipes tomorrow when I make my daily visit to my Bird.
