    FREE FLOW pipe question

    okay so i guess i miss read something somewhere.

    I bought the L shaped pipe from cx racing but now it appears i need another 90 pipe as well? sucs because they kill you on shipping.

    Is it possible to cut the needed 90 out of the stock black hose?

    not gonna look pretty but ill save $30 and 10 days

    You can use your existing crossover connector bro. You didn't throw it away did ya?

    na i didnt throw anything out.

    so are we talking about the same rubber hose? the big one?

    do you have any pics? as i see it maybe i could cut a 90 out of that hose, right?

    Angle your free flow towards it. You use the same hose. You can replace it with a 90 and couplers though.

    Is it important to angle the free flow a little higher than the waterbox and exhaust outlet to avoid flooding? stevo i also thought you needed the L and a 90 and use the existing rubber hose for long couplers. for that CX price i would just buy some cheap exhaust pipe from autozone or something.

    The free flow only replaces the resonater.

    The pipe from cx is quality thick aluminum piping, cheap steel exhaust pipe from autozone weighs 10 times more and rust faster then you can say rust.

    yea, but you still want the pipes to bend a little higher than the waterbox so it cant flood right?

    i am not putting cheap pipe next to good pipe- whats the point of that?? I just dont get how i read all about the free flow pipe but the 90 elbow wasnt mentioned. sux. im not sure about the below but everyone elses is pitched up with a 90 elbow and that seems to be enough.

    The 90 degree is usually not mentioned because just the J-pipe will work using the rest from your stock exhaust. And yes, you want it to go a little higher then your waterbox to prevent water from coming in. I learned this the hard way.
