How did you guys manage to get the flex pipe to bend 90 degrees ? I have the 6 inch grand rocks turbo back kit , It was a pain in the but i got it all on but that flex pipe , It will not bend enough to go from the exhaust to the stacks :banghead:

My Grand Rock kit came with a 5" 90 degree elbow. The flex pipe is only there to absorb the bed flex, not to take the place of the elbow.

Flex pipe dont bend. LOL I tried to use a 45 instead of a 90 when I built my stack setup. Ended up using a hammer alot, and it hangs too low under the truck and looks like trash! Like stated above, the flex just offers you a little range of movement for bed flex. It won't CURVE!!!!!! :doh:

When I put mine on, the pipe between the down pipe and the flex pipe was about 6" short. I ran it carefully to work for two days with it open and no hangers until I could get a piece or 18" long flex for it. I probably drove it for 30-40 miles that way before I got the flex pipe and got it installed.

im currently running with no flex pipe and no hangers. havent had any problems. i used band clamps for my pipe joints though, they offer a bit of mobility
