If I had all the motor mounts along with the "stiffy" would the engine still move enough to where I would need a flex pipe?

no matter what, you should think of having a flex for any kind of movement, from no mount to mounts w/stiffy. you wouldn't want to get rid of it and then have engine/chassey movment and cause a bend i the pipe, maybe a blockage of air flow and then screw up the engine because the exhaust fums isn't getting out enough.


maybe im wrong but thats just my opinion.

^^ Well the engine will only be moving mil not an inch, and the exhaust is hung on rubber so it will have some flex.

You will still need the flex pipe.... you have to take into account how much things are going to move during "hard shifting" and with out a flex the pipe will eventually weaken and crack.

I've got an auto. So hard shifting isnt possible sadly.

here is what you do, put all 3 motor mounts on and rev up the engine from the TB and see how the engine moves, you will see you still need it!!

I'll have to do that when I get everything. It doesnt move much as it is now.
