Exhaust.....Flex pipe or not?

I'm going to have my new exhaust done next week and was wondering if those of you running header and 2", have a flexible (braided) pipe at the front. I saw in the Izook they put one in, but is it really needed?

Danny, I just put a header on mine and HAD to use flex pipe to make it line up with what I had. I got it a Autozone and it is not like the flex pipe of old. Looks much stronger. Jim

If your building a complete system it's not necessary. I only have a couple of hangers on mine and it allows the system to move with the motor without rattle or contact anywhere.

dannyl,
you got to remember at the header is the hottest and that chep flex isnt gonna hold up for nothing...i rigged up a system on my rig awhile ago for e-check and it busted apart on the way home...do it right the first time...STAINLESS, with a chrome tip [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Exhaust.....Flex pipe or not?

Yup, I think adding that chrome tip adds an extra 500 HP,
doesn't it?

It must, I see the Honda racer-chasers on the freeways all
have them.

But don't add any decals, it'll make it go so fast you'll
get tickets, not for speeding, flying too low.

Sorry, couldn't resist, saw something on TV that prompted it.

Re: Exhaust.....Flex pipe or not?

i am tinking of redoing mine as well if i remember corectly the first couple mounting points are attached to the motor/ tranny and since they move as a unit a flex coupling wouldnt be nessary till way down the pipe that should make it last a little longer but i have yet to see one hold up well
