Sorry for the trouble guys. I'll start adding a brace to the upper side of the exhaust on the inlet side. If anyone had trouble with this issue and needs another hanger or something let me know. Of the ones that broke are they stainless or aluminized and was it daily driver or track driven car? Jason

Just finished a 3" system and added aditional brace for the hanger. Jayc72 I haven't built your yet. Don't worry, I'll start adding the additonal brace from here out. Do you guy think this will work? Sorry for the lousy photo. Jason

DD and track day car. Stainless. The one that broke on mine was shown here. There was actually very little of the weld that took. It came off very cleanly and there was some corrosion/dirt on most of backside of the weld. Again, this was the one I bought used off your car. Not necessarily a good representation of what the public gets.

Forget the extra piece, bend the end of the main piece into a "C" shape and weld it in 2 or 3 spots, so it's cupping the tube like a good prostitute would.
