Atomic 4 exhaust

I am kind of a die hard when it comes to my Atomic 4. I have owned a couple of these motors and they are very good and quiet and smooth. I decided to rebuild the exhaust and started with a nice 1 1/4" thread to hose bronze fitting next I tracked down bronze elbows no problem. Now for the 11" pipe nipple and the 5" pipe nipple. It ain't happinin. I have looked all over all I can find is brass and if you know about heat water and brass = dezincification X a few hours = bummer. I don't think I want to use brass. But I cant find bronze pipe. This is a problem I did not think of running into. If you have some source please post and don't tell me brass will be ok or before you do please look at this site http://www.corrosionlab.com and then read some of this stuff. http://www.ybw.com/forums/showflat.p...iew/collapsed/

This changed my mind on brass real quick so where is the BRONZE PIPE?
Bronze is copper and tin
Brass is copper and zinc ahhhhhh! Zinc
