    Default flexi pipe blowing really bad.

    I have ordered the stage 3 kit for the veccy, but have a problem that it is never goin g to come in time for my MOT and i believe it will fail for exhaust emmisions test.
    Does any body have any ideas on how to seal the flexi without much cost just to pass the mot?
    I looked at it today and was going to put on some flexi tubing but the bracket which holds the exhaust on is in the way so that idea is out, thought about exhaust rap and paste but don't think will seal or whether it would last.

    Help required.

    Default

    if it's blowing , then the internal wrap of the flexicoil will have unwound...either the tightly wound heat wrap tape if the leak isn't too bad or it'll have to be a cheap aftermarket section even if it takes some fitting..
