I'm not sure where you are going with "pre-formed" but I think you mean U-bolts or simply muffler clamps. Anyway, If you can get them to stay tight the flat clamps are pretty cool. After fighting with muffler clamps, I welded my stuff. The only use for muffler clamps now is to hold the exhaust to the hangers.

depending if your going with id or od. I think thats the term, but if the pipe is the same size and will not slide into each other i think you need a regular one. If one end is bigger i believe you will need the pre-fit like you are talking about. Sorry im not sure on the correct names for piping

Thanks guys!!! I trying to upgrade from what the manufacture offers with the kit... From prior experience the band lamps seem to be the next best thing to welding...just a thought the system comes with muffler clamps to get the job done!! I just wanted to upgrade!!!!!!

I use SS band clamps when I re and re the cat for emissions testing. They work slick and seal really well. Takes about 15 minutes each way. Got them from International for about $10 a piece.

The preformed clamps are for use with a slip fit where one pipe slips into the other. The flat clamp is for a butt fit where they just meet end to end.
