Hi, Any tips for straightening out part of a Exhaust? Can it be heated and moved with a steel pole inside? Or will it be easier to cut off and add straight pipe section?

Thanks everyone,

Dave.

Thin wall pipe is difficult to form without proper tooling, I've never tried to straighten as the wall would crush. I would cut out and weld in a new section.

I echo the previous statement, you will never successfully straighten out exhaust pipe.
