Exhaust flanges for easy removal--3"

I almost have all of my parts in for my 3" exhaust set up. I have a 3 bolts flange coming off the headers which it'll bolt to and was wondering if anyone has ever put a flange on the tailpipe. I'm thinking about doing this b/c for accessibility - it will be easy to remove the whole section.

Also once the 2 piece 3" tail pipe is welded together is there any way to remove it in one piece?

Use a couple of exhaust flanges to section the system up. Everyone told me to weld up my cat-back system. But since I know I will change components, it'd be stupid. Could be something like:

cat>flange>muffler>flange>tail piece

Just use exhaust gaskets and you wont have to worry about leaks.

I have flanges at the end of the y pipe. Between the cat and muffler, and between muffler and tailpipe. Makes work a ton easier on everything.

Nice to know i'll be able to get the tail pipe out!

Ratmonkey - how exactly do you have the flanges bolted up/welded on? I was thinking of just flanging from the ypipe/cat and muffler/tailpipe but might be interested in your set up now. Can you post any pics? Thanks

Just weld them to the ends of the pipe and clock them so there's a flat along the bottom. You can do one in front of the cat and one after the muffler and it'll be good enough for any work you want to do with it off.
