Where can I find T-304 exhaust pipe? I just need a few feet of it, and most auto parts stores only have the aluminized garbage. McMaster appears to carry regular T304 pipe (not available in automotive exhaust pipe sizes).

It'll be pretty hard to find on the shelf as well as just a few feet. I install T304 & 316L tubing/process piping everyday. If your in Washington state let me know I can hook ya up. Good luck !

It doesn't look like Borla carries 2" pipes

Where does your shop generally buy the T304 pipes? Local suppliers?

I know some comes from back east & Canada. I would look for shops doing sanitary piping ( food/brewery/Coke/Pepsi ect.), they'd have rems around the shop. Distributors of sanitary piping, Andron fittngs. Here's a link to the type of piping we do :

Good luck !

What size(diameter and wall thickness), and how much do you need? If the lengths aren't too much, it's UPS-able.

I'm not sure but i think there is a difference between T304 used in breweries and bakeries, versus auto exhaust pipes. For example, I need 2" OD with about Schedule 10 thickness. McMaster only shows 1.9" OD for 2" pipes.

There will be a difference in od from pipe to tube, other than that it should be std. Industrial and foodstuffs convey piping is usually pipe, as in the sch 10, sch 40 pipe, although they do use tubing as well. Just depends on the convey rate they need.
Auto tube should be a std tube diameter of 1.5"- 1.75"-1.875"-2"-2.25"-2.5"-3"-etc.
I carry much of it, and can get any of it, but it sure isn't cheap anymore. Heck even my scrap stainless brings almost $1.5/lb.
Just let me know what size you want, and how much, and I'll get you a price. If you want to spend some more $, I can get T316, as well.

Good call - I checked McMaster and there is a definite difference between stainless pipe (2" = 1.90" OD) and stainless tubing (2" OD = 2" OD). The prices for SS tubing don't seem so bad (~$5/ft').
