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

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

I've built two T4i kits with bellows.

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