    Front Flexi Pipe.. options

    If I get quick answer for the following would be grand!
    Car is a 1.8i, Hatchback MK4.
    Had its front flexi pipe for exhaust replaced 2months back, since then under heavy acceleration above 2750RPM constant wistle noise throught the revs.
    Garage checked it and turns out to be faulty part which is covered by years manufactures warranty so wont have pay for anything on the re-work. Brand is Walker one if anyone interested.

    Is there some sort of uprated/sports one that I can have fitted?
    Be for 1.8, 2002 Mk4 Hatchback
    Front flexi pipe.

    PS not good on the exhaust front!

    The front flexi is basically described as a bit of solid mesh that allows the exhaust to absorb the majority of the vibrations rather than rattle your full exhaust. I dont think there is such thing as an uprated/sports flexi to be honest with you (I may be wrong!), but when I replaced my full system with an Ashley exhaust the flexi he used was basically the same as my standard one.

    Hope it helps

    I dont think there was, just seeing if there was another option.
    Not costing me anything get new one fitted anyway
