    Exhaust flex joint help needed

    This is on an M54 DOHC.

    OBD2 headers---->2" merge---->2 1/2" to the muffler.

    Tyler fabricated the merge and after a summer of track time my exhaust was getting louder. I found a cracked flex joint and temporarily mended it with a V- band clamp

    Do I

    (1) repair it how it was by replacing the bellows
    (2) put a straight pipe there leaving only 1 flex pipe.

    I recall that the factory pipes have only 1 flex and 1 solid.

    It seems that makes more sense. With two flex joints, isn't it creating movement at the joints?

    What does R3V think?
