First of all, really sorry to post and post. What are peoples opinions on installing a silencer to header pipe. The new silencer pipes diameter is the same as the header pipes diameter. I read somewhere that Ace used some aluminium roof flashing and clamps to connect. Sounds like a pretty good idea to me and im pretty sure i should be able to get it pretty tight. Should be alright. He said he like this over using putty which can be messy. Ive also decided i wanna paint the new silencer matt black and use a black exhaust tape to cover the header pipe. Mainly for the look because i will need to cover up the clamps, aluminium and the hook that the old heat shield attached to.
