Bending Hell Bent pipes

I have a set of Hell Bent pipes and the one by the oil bag is too close. Is it possible to heat this pipe and bend it a little bit? Or will I ruin the pipe? I am going to have them powder coated black so don't care about the finish...

Yes , you can do it...but the mistake that a lot of people make is not heating enough area so they end up with a kink..there is a procedure where they pack sand in the area to be bent to prevent the kink..I saw a you tube video on it..you may not need that to bend a little though...Be sure to heat on each side of the stress point..
