I called Kraft 5 Star the other day and they said it would be $119 for the flex pipe replacement. Its not terrible given the price of the part, etc. I'm probably never going to build the Accord anyways. I just want it to run as good as it used to.

well as long as it's a good flex pipe it should last you for awhile.

umm this wasnt today but was yesterday, i fixed some holes in my exhaust but now is terribly bent out of shape, so i called Exhaust Pros to setup an appointment for friday to get an estimate on a whole new exhuast all the way back, except for the down pipe because i dont know if i will be keeping this turbo setup much longer. other then that got my hood struts on so no more dumb little hood prop...or sticks.

Maybe you should get some stainless steel piping up in that mofo. That aught to hold up a bit better.

You have any pics of your turbo setup? I'd like to check it out.

lol stainless wont be any help, im almost tuckin tire in the back so im like 2.5 inches off the ground pretty much. its mostly scraping the ground and stuff taking its toll. so spending the extra money isnt really worth it if its still going to put a hole in it. i needed a new exhaust anyways. but let me find some and ill post some pics of the setup on here soon, just gotta find them in my photobucket account.

Probably not. I can't say that it's worth putting money into outside of just to fix it and such. Its too rough and abused to ever be anything else. I love the car. I've owned it since Feb. of 2004, but it has DEFINITELY seen better days.

If it were spotless still, I might have never bought my tC and would have put more money into it, but it has always been rusty and it has gotten a lot worse in the past couple of years...
