Angry Lost Tailpipe from 5" Flo-Pro Exhaust

The tailpipe from my 5" Flo-Pro exhaust (including the black 6" MBRP exhaust tip) fell off my truck! That pipe clamp with the single nut is crap. It wasn't even a lock-nut or double-nutted. I should have welded it on. No muffler, windows open, loud music... no way I could here it fall off. Anyway, if anyone sees it laying around the side of the road in Edmonton or area, let me know.

they've updated that clamp to a two bolt lap clamp, but they're still junk. Tack the connections or use guillotine clamps

email flo-pro and see if you can get it warrantied for being a POS kit

Thanks. I've sent a message to Flo-Pro already. I'll look for the updated clamp and tack weld in at least three spots.

Flo-Pro got back to me first thing this morning. Big thanks to Bryan at the Flo-Pro Red Deer facility. After providing my original receipt info, they agreed to send out a replacement tailpipe and exhaust tip, along with the upgraded clamp.

same thing happened to me. Sucks, i was driving along not long after installing and heard this aweful banging then looked back to see my tail pipe in the road. Luckily no one was right behind me. Felt like a total idiot when driving a 50k truck and the tail pipe comes off in the road. I fixed mine by drilling three holes in the exhaust and installing S.S. screws. Its not coming off anytime soon. I also called flo pro and complained. I ended up going to a semi truck shop and bought 5" exhaust clamps that use a u-bolt to hold the exhaust together. Haven't had any issues since.

That kind of customer service is almost unheard of now days.
