So I got my new pipe today. Its a Titanium Jardine.
Its installed now, but I have a few questions I hope someone might be able to answer for me.
1) When I removed my stock pipe(2002 f4i) from the header, the header had a metalic colored tape/gasget on it where the s-tube clamped onto the header. The S-tube the came with my Jardine pipe isn't as big as the stock so it doesn't go back over this 'gasget'..is this gasket removable? any advice? should I remove it or just butt the new s-tube up to it?
2) Where my s-tube and the pipe meet, there are 2 springs that clip from the pipe to the s-tube , is this normal for slip ons to have this? i know its to make sure the pipe stays onto the s-tube..but I haven't seen it like that before.
(pictuers to be posted)
Any help would be nice.
