Greetings, A1.
I too use silicone tubing for all my exhaust extensions in the size you mentioned as well as other sizes.
If you don't want to pay $8 to $12 a foot, stay away from the car and truck supply houses as well as hobby shops.
I buy mine in multiple foot lenghts at a commercial plastics and rubber supply house for $1.50 a foot!

Regards,

DrGO

Will surgical tubing work?

In my search for an exhaust tubing, I also looked at surgical tubing and found that not only was it expensive, but also not suited for the tempuratures involved.

Teflon is the best set up there is. I have been running it on four strokes for a couple years now.
