Default exhaust flex joint help

I have a 2000 Bonneville SSEI with a leak in the flex joint in the down pipe from the rear of the exhaust manifold to the front of the cat. I went to two muffler shops, both said dealer item only. I need a part number. Also, I cold not find a down pipe with flex joint that bolts to the cat on any of the after market web sites (TOG'*, ZZP, etc.). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I thought ZZP had one, but it deleted the stock cat.

Is this a stock exhaust system or do you have headers? I have the stock mainfolds and down pipe. If you want it you can have it, just pay shipping.

Pm me your zip code and I'll get a shipping quote from Canada post.

You are a very generous man.

A true club buddy.

Rod - This is your opportunity, if you decide not to take up Dads very good offer, to convert to a TOG header set-up. Their flex connector is far superior to the OEM.

Headers are definately an investment you will not regret. There are only 3 things that can out-do the difference headers makes...a pulley, an intercooler, and a cam. Other than that headers can't really be beat. They are an awesome power adder and they give you significant horsepower AND torque gains.

I must have misunderstood before. I thought that you gained HP, but lost torque with headers. Now I'm confused.

With no other mods to support the flow, that'* probably true, but the guys putting on headers have much smaller pulleys on the superchargers, and usually rockers or a cam.
