but wait,
in the plumbing trade when you purchase a flex fitting its sold by the id/od and the length is "usually" what you get, so if you bought a 2" flex, the length might very well be 12" overall with a inch or two on each end for fittings, thats how its listed.
so in a 6" claim it does fit because the fittings are a necessary part of being able to connect it..

and whats all that green stuff in the background, good videos.

Don, in my point of view, I just see that the full six inch flex pipe is actual pipe that can be flexed. I understand the couplings are needed to connect the flexible joint to the pipe, but in my opinion, the flexible part of the joint is the braided part, not the couplings. I don't have a gripe about what is stated by the aftermarket exhaust itself, but at least the exhaust has a flex pipe, unlike the DTH exhausts or the gen 1 BPP exhaust (not saying they are bad products, just pointing out the lack of a flexible pipe). Again, I love this exhaust and would highly recommend it, but like Jet stated, it might be too much noise for some peoples' tastes. Then again, I am 18 and like that deep exhaust note.

And Don, can you give me an idea of from which points in the video there are unknown green stuff in the background so I can tell you what they are? Thank you.

Must be from "that" part of California. I spent two weeks in Exeter, CA helping out a sister plant a couple of years ago.... EVERYTHING was brown. I couldn't wait to get back to Indiana!


BTW smartcar111, great review, but I have to agree with Jet... a little too loud for my taste.

Glad my video review could be a determination about your loudness tastes. Thanks for the compliments.
