I've had to weld every flo~pro I've done because their band clamps don't hold the pipe togther like it should, other than that they are a nice system. I prefer MBRP.

No, the flo pro products that I have installed did not fit right and hung low. Maybe now they have been gone up in quality but I doubt it. AFE, banks, MBRP all fit great.

I have the same problem. The 2 AFT pipe's loosen and slid out of the bungs.

Did you weld the entire system or just the end?

FloPro is junk. They have updated their clamps and made changes to certain systems, but I refuse to feed them money

I just tack weld on both sides of every clamp...works great, I just make sure to tack where you can easily get a grinder on it if the exhaust has to come off.
