Question Mandrel vs Wrinkle Bent?

So I am in the market for a new custom aftermarket exhaust, and the vendor doesn't have what I want with Mandrel Bent pipes, only Wrinkle Bent.

Would the wrinkle bend restrict my airflow to negate the efficiency and horsepower gains from purchasing the exhaust in the first place?


A Google search seems to indicate that the difference is negligible on vehicles that aren't producing a ton of power.
