Newer Dth exhausts, or custom?

Hello everyone,

My fiance's 2008 flex pipe snapped the other day sooo I'm looking at exhausts and found the Dth. I was searching around and only found threads pertaining to the doug thorley header exhaust. Anf that you should stay away from them because they don't have a flex pipe, and the motion from the engine was killing them. Ive seen they now have flex pipes so I'm wondering if anyone has one and how it's holding up?

Really tempted to put my old harley slip ons, on it ������

If they still are junk, does anyone know what size flex pipe I need by chance? And also a different muffler? Would be cool to slap on there while I'm welding.

I don't know much about the DTH exhausts, other than it wasn't so much the issues they had, but the way their customer service handled things.
It seems most of the aftermarket exhausts use Magnaflow canister mufflers, When I get to my lunch break, I'll get a couple of photos and try to take a few measurements for you.

Thank you, did you happen to get measurements of the muffler by chance? We're going to be fixing the exhaust on Wednesday one way or another

I did, sorry It took so long to post them up, totally spaced on that one.

The Muffler on mine is a Magnaflow, 14" long x 4" diameter case, 2.25" inlet and outlet.
I believe it is this one: https://www.magnaflow.com/products?partNumber=10415

The flex coupler is 4" long, 2.25" Inlet and outlet.

I would advise that if you are fabbing up the exhaust from scratch, to use the longest flex coupler you can. The amount of vibration in the exhaust on these cars is pretty crazy.
