My friend needs to get his flexpipe replaced. He isn't sure if the flexpipe is connected to the downpipe or not(like, if it's all one piece). I never heard of the flexpipe before, but i'm hoping someone here has. Does anyone know exactly what the flexpipe is and if it is a seperate piece than the downpipe?

the flex-pipe section is one piece to the down pipe. He could however bring it to a muffler shop and have them put on a new one. Tell your friend to get his own flex pipe from the junkers in good condition, they're quite expensive if they're new.

The flex pipe is just that, basically a big flexible section after the downpipe made from steel ribbons. As the engine creates movement, a flex pipe is there so the exhaust piping didn't get overstressed from the engine's movement/vibrations.

not too sure what the rpice is on right now, but a used one can be had for 30-50 bucks at the junkers if not mistaken depending on size and condition. It was someone else's car. you might be able to find out from www.carparts.com, or maybe midas can help price a new one.

I'd say if you're looking into an exhaust system, just go ahead and get a header. They all come with a new flexpipe in the downpipe. :D
i don't think i have the loot for the header yet. i have some other projects i was working on. in the future i'll have the header. i was just going to get my custom 2.25" piping done.

and i didn't know about the flex pipe coming with the header, thanks! :D

Thanks ashura, he said he got quoted around 250 for a new flexpipe. I will tell him that he just needs to find a used flexpip in a slavage yard instead of the whole thing

autozone said they have a bosal front exhaust pipe with the flex section for $110.19... i'm going to look into this in a few weeks because my flex section is shot, too... they do have it listed on their website as part number 816-013

edit: link doesn't work...

no wonder I can't remember the price..it's one of those thing I choose to forget because it's so outrageously expensive for a little thing.

that was my problem. my flex pipe broke. so, instead of paying 250 for a new one, i got the stillen header, which comes with the flex pipe part that needed to be replaced. for 200 more, u fix the problem and upgrade to a header in the process.
