Fabricated the exhaust and turbo piping, not as nice as tube headers but it works.

Love this. I had the idea to try and tackle this years ago but I knew I'd not do it half the justice you are.

Keep at it! B)

I use solid rod (not tubing) and bend it with my fingers or round needle nose pliers.  I then heat the bend over a candle to release the tension and set the shape.  I melt plastic bits in liquid cement and use it as weld on the joints.  Super glue can work too but can be brittle if you have to make adjustments.  Various files help me cleanup the joint.

It all looks so simple - the sign of a master! Very interesting 👍
