Exhaust pipe and tubing are really two different things. Im sure someone else can elaborate on this but the steel used in tubing is different than what is used to make pipe. Plus the process to make them is different. Exhaust pipe isnt designed to hold weight, just to exhaust gases so the metal is soft and the side walls are too thin. Not only that but most exhaust pipe is galvanized and hard to weld. It would pretty much be useless in a roll over. Just go and buy a couple sticks of tubing, its not as cheap as exhaust pipe but it really isnt very expensive especially compared to buying a pre-made cage.
