Not sure about the Speedway kit. I built mine using a used set of headers. Cut the tubes about 2" from the flange, and welded straight pipes to later cut off to match the angle I needed. I bought a 7' stick of 3" exhaust tubing and a handful, of hose clamps. Measure the circumference of the front pipe, then mark that distance at the end of the 3" . Make two straight lines from those two marks down to the other end of the pipe to form sort of a pie cut. Cut that with your angle grinder. It takes a bit of messaging and hose clamps, but I put that tube in a vise and starting bending. I used hose clamps so that the pipe would not get flat or oval.heres how they turned out.

the top pipe of the chain link fence is the same size of pipe on a regular chevy header . If I had access to a pipe bender I bet I could make my own ,

Don't have the vid but can give some advice, start with the front port and cone, put it where it will lay, then do the last port, then do the two centers.I had to add a little to my last port to clear my '46 firewall.
