a very silly question, this..

You know the exhaust comes in three sections, well, excuse my ignorance
(and its not stupidity), but the front bit that has the mesh on it, so
the exhaust can be bent - what is it actually used for? I mean, what is
its divine purpose in life?

Renate,
I believe as you say it is a flexible link for the exhaust, it allows
flexion to occur, as you see the engine vibrates and moves around a lot. You
can see this when you blip the throttle, it also allows for expansion and
contraction, as it is very hot so close to the engine.

Hi,
I think it's to stop the vibrations from the engine cracking the pipe
which might happen if it were rigid.

Yes it is divinely designed to do just that.

Renate - there is no such thing as a silly question. No one should feel
concious about asking anything. Your question has been answered. I'm
still ok for the waxoiling over Christmas - Monday 27 I will be busy -
so any other day that week is fine.
Gareth.

In addition to the valid arguments posted before: the reason why the 1HD-T
needs it, while the older 2H in 60-series does not (not sure about 12H-T and
1HZ), is that the turbo-housing puts it further to the side, increasing arm of
leverage.
It's also the first (and most expensive) thing to crack on them....so if you
have yours custom made, be sure they make it as long and beefy as possible.
(I have also pondered about re-using such a broken SS flexible joint as the
very last part of the exhaust, to have a flexible tail-pipe and prevent damage
to the rest of the exhaust when driving it into soil or obstackles....shame I
had mine trown away back then....way too expensive for that)
