I broke the flex pipe to the front exhaust manifold on mine. Have to replace the whole thing. It'll be here tomorrow.

Dame, glad you got her running right again, but let'* take a closer look at that alt and battery.

When I did my front manifold I was so sure I was going to kill the flex pipe...the last thing they do is seperate when they are supposed to.

Flex pipe comes off the exhaust manifold and goes up to the EGR

Flexible is a loose term on it. As far as where it'* located, I like where it is...makes it simple to get at.

Yeah, mine is kind of a PITA to get to. It just takes a few extra minutes due to the lack of space. Not too bad, IMO.

And by "I win" I meant that mine didn't break or give me problems

Yeah, I got lucky as well. Although the way you keep pulling yours apart every couple of days you'll end up wearing it out.

Justin, you have a totally different application by parts and location. We're talking a different generation here. Mine is VERY easy to get to, mounted to the front EM, and it held up quite well considering the exhaust temps the L67 produces. The reason you don't have problems is because:

#1: Your car is so old, it'* probably been replaced already.
#2: You don't have an L67 (I win).
#3: You have a totally different setup.
#4: You've been lucky.

Well, unless a replacement can rust very quickly, I doubt it'* been replaced. Due to the carbon buildup I have.

You got L67, I got LN3. We all have our advantages.
Lucky? Hell yeah I have been. I'm surprised the car hasn't blown up, and taken me with it.
