I have a 3" exhaust system with turbo elbow but it has no flexi pipe on it, surely when the engine moves is goin to cause the exhsust to split after time?

Im sure if you have solid engine mounts you would get little of movement  from it ... but if i had the option i would fit one  with speed bumps etc every little helps  shit not breaking Laughing

Just a thought so I might be wrong, but with the stiffer engine mounts would the vibration from the engine be more likely to cause fatigue on the exhaust due to the mounts not absorbing as much of the vibrations?
