Finally Fixed My Flexpipe.

Finally got around to replacing my flexpipe. I think it was about time.

A torn flex was what motivated me to completely redo my exhaust. Time for a header-back

I just replaced the flex for now. Not much cash for a new exhaust right now.

If you want a brand new OEM downpipe, your gonna pay close to $850 because of their 3 way catalyst. That's what the dealership charges, so junkyard hunting or ZZP.

Ask around, I ran across a guy who had a 05 SS OEM just laying around collecting dust, offered him $100, sold!

We just welded a new flex onto the stock downpipe. Most junkyards scrap the cats as soon as they come in. I was looking for an lsj dp, but got tired of waiting.
