As a matter of fact I work at a shop that has a hydraulic bender. Didn't know if that would work or not.

Just to make things clear, pipe and tubing are two different animals. Tubing is measured from outside diameter and pipe is measured inside diameter. If you use a pipe die on tubing to bend it, it will more than likely kink or distort the tubing. I only bring this to light because if you have kinked tubing in your roll cage and you take a hard lick, it will most likely fail, and nobody wants to see an injured race car driver. Godspeed my friends.
