i think the flex pipe is mostly there for two reasons, first to 'flex' while accelerating and braking (think of our egr adaptor bracket, it breaks like nothing because it's metal right onto metal) and second, to allow the exhaust setup to 'fit into' our engine bay strategically. I just think it would be easier to not mess around with the flex, and modify just the cat up front, with a new flange .... but we'll have to see. I am going to be able to afford an exhaust sometime in the next 6 months, but I am mostly waiting on our results from this (why get a cat-back if like you're saying a zx3 cat back would be a better fit?)
