New flex pipe, old power discovered

I had a real bad hole in my flexpipe and it sounded like garbage because of the rattle, it only lasted about a week till it bothered me waay too much. I could see it coming a mile away, this fix was a long time coming. When it finally gave out i was going like 30 in 1st on my way to get ready to redline, and when it did, wow. Such a rattle and ungodly sound from the flex pipe, no wonder I was losing so much power... Right after changing it the difference was crazy, all i really hear is the whine of the engine and belts when accelerating, engine is so quiet, and restored power was and still is fun as ****.

My muffler rattles and vibes now tho, im thinking heat shield, tips, or hangers... original 92 muffler......

i wish i tool pics of the old one at the shop, it was rough.... ill put up pics of the new one tho

Re: New flex pipe, old power discovered

i fixed the rattle today, stupid mechanic bent my heat shield purposely, i mean he must have.. to make me come back in ? weird, and he told me that same day "oh and your muffler looks like its gonna go soon, u got a baffle rattling"..
BS, i just fixed it, muffler can stay till i get exhaust done all the way back...

small question: Can u eliminate the flex pipe in any manner, like use a test pipe or something, or is that bad news bears ?
