Default Re: Replacing full exhaust downpipe(+flex) vs cutting in new flex pipe?

Thank you, yeah my first thought was just have some one weld the holes but then when I saw the walker new flex pipe I figured that'd be the better fix. But hearing (and seeing in Richpin's video) how difficult it is to weld the top of the front joint idk if I trust someone to do it properly/fully. I'm going to take another look at the flex pipe beneath the braid and will take pictures.

Another thought I had, about about a lot of Permatex sealer and a lot of rivets around the entire thing? I heard the rivets could loosen up over time, but I feel like it should last a while if I get enough of them in there to truly keep it form vibrating.

And oh yeah, the Amazon reviews did say the Walker downpipe had to be cut re-welded to work on 3rd gens, I forgot about that. Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
