DIY Bellowed Pipes??

I ran across a guy on here that bought some bellows and welded them onto the stock up-pipes. Has anyone else tried this? Has anyone tried flexible exhaust pipe? Any advice would be helpful. I will keep you updated.

I'd make my own if I could find bellows. Although my up pipes are not leaking I feel they will at some point.

its the posititioning of the bellows that are where people will have problems. Without knowing exactly where to weld the inserts in, its a guess game, that is, unless the tranny's out and have a clear look as to where the placement should be.

If going to try, use these...http://www.summitracing.com/parts/vpe-40055s

DIY answer...DIY (drive it yourself) to an IH dealer and buy one ...

but seriously, with the abuse they take (heat/vibration) Id just buy them and be sure I only have to do it once

I've built two T4i kits with bellows.

Cant see where it would be hard to weld a couple bellows in.
