Anybody ever get their hardpipes welded? I'm thinking about getting my exhaust depot ones welded so I won't have to worry about leaks :thumbsup: Is it possible? Any input? Thanks

i dont think its a good idea . the engine has to move back and forth and the silicone couplers are there for a reason. im not sure if im right but i believe that everything is made in a special way for a reason.

What happens when you wanna/need to take your intercooler off for whatever reason! Bad news bears. I'm w/ the double clamp idea. that's what I do.

get teh agp pipes with t bolt clamps.. they are a better design and wont leak with t bolt clamps.

THe full metal hardpipe isnt forgiving with variables from one car to another. AGP pipes are designed with the lower half being silicone. THis is easier to fit to your car and wont leak due to poor lineup.

YOu cant weld steel to aluminum. If its leaking then you need to read my howto on my site. Also the hotside is tricky for alot of people to do.

My new HP come with a full rolled bead and t bolt clamps.
