Default tuned pipes for outboards

I've been out of the boating scene for about a decade and I am now wondering where some good sources are for tuned pipes to fit marine outboard engines (especially K&B 3.5cc)

I used to have one on the boat I ran, but I got it second hand and never found out who the manufacturer was...

Any leads would be greatly appreciated; so far on the web I have found some sources for straight pipes, but none of the bent versions for the outboards.

If you can find em, these Garcia Mini Marine pipes kick butt!! There is another guy on this site that collects 'em.

Guy's, you will rarely see me bash or come back on anyone but before you make such a harsh statement on a product, STOP and think twice.

Making tune pipes is an Art, not everyone can make one, well not one that will work. There is more to it than just pound a sheet of aluminum, however if you truly believe you can make excellent tune pipes at 90% of the cost please please start now and you will have a flock of boaters coming your way for your products.

Dan.

Yup, making tuned pipes is an art and Ihave seen a lot of different methods, and I am sure that those are one of the best pipes since all you guys use them and the price reflects how good they are and how proud they are of them.

Throttle exhaust freaking sweet! Where would one get one? That's just awesome. I have a few Hawk Hydro's with throttle exhaust and simply love em. The stock K&B throttle exhaust leave me wondering where to get a real throttle exhaust for my K&B 3.5 OB.
