OH SNAP!!

Last Saturday I installed a new Flo-Pro 5" DP back exhaust on truck. In a boneheaded move it appears I missed tightening one of the clamps down. I lost the rear portion where the tip attaches. Does anyone know where I can get this piece of pipe? Will any other brand work? I contacted one seller of these exhaust systems and they want $199 for that piece of pipe and one clamp. Since that price is 2/3 the cost of the entire system I am hoping to find something cheaper.

Any help is much appreciated.

Could go to your local exhaust shop and see if they will make you one?

UPDATE.... Finding a local shop that worked with a system as large as 5" was hard to find. So I sent out several emails to online merchants that sell Flo-Pro exhaust systems inquiring about purchasing just the piece I needed. I got a reply from a company (not sure if allowed to mention name in this thread or not) that sold it to me for $89.99 shipped. I ordered it on Monday and it came in this morning, Wed. I did not purchase my exhaust or tuner from them and they sold me the piece I needed for $109.00 less than the company I made the major purchase through. I now know where I will be getting my CAI and such from in the future.

A word of advice with the 5" Flo Pro, weld that last section of the pipe to the section that goes over the rear axle. No matter how tight I put the clamp on the final section, after a couple days, the exit pipe would end up pointing towards the sky and would be uncomfortably close to the body. I had one of the guys in my shop throw a couple welds on it and I haven't had any issues since.
