Ok so as many of you guys know this is the second flex pipe that has broken on me. I decided to go for quality. I turned over to turbokits and purchased there one piece flex pipe and high flow cat. Stainless steel all polish. It has a very solid feel after installed vs stock cat and flex which tends to move around alot. Yes the car is just a tab louder and i feel the diffrence in1st,2nd,3rd gear. If you are in my shoes and braking flex pipes or even want extra hp this is a quick 30 min mod to do.
