tailpipe

anyone ever herd of those tailpipes sold in 6' sections that can bend and twist in many directions? i was just wondering if this would be a good cheap investment for a custum exhaust job because it eliminates having someone custome bend your pipes. since its some form of corugation, would that help keep some backpressure that everyone says is lost during exhaust mods? i was just wonderin since im a cheap bastard. thanks

flex pipe is illegal here in Connecticut too

the pipe is intended to be a temporary patch and is known to leak at the bends

if you use that stuff, make sure you get good pics of the duct tape on the joints. If you have extra time, some shots of the gun-rack and how it's mounted would be great too.
In other words, no, don't use it!!!
