Does anyone make a silicone TOP?

My s3 pipe has bends from overtightening. It seems like a siliconetype might be an interesting idea

I'm assuming you're using T-bolt clamps? If so, switch to high quality worm gear clamps.

Go to autozone and rent an exhaust pipe expander. Heat the pipe up a bit before using the expander. It’s worth a shot.

Breeze constant torque Ct 300 L SS....donít forget to torque them to 90 in lbs. Boost leaks are a thing of the past with these clamps.

I already have them, but I don't know at what point the pipe bent, could've been from the t-bolt it came with

Oh ok, my fault. I think it would be a cool thing to have the whole thing in silicone... Just 1 piece.

Ok, so this damn thing is just too bent, it's leaking no matter what I do. Is there another top without the clips? Because I can't find one.... preferably stainless steel
