The crossover pipe is next. B&G uses a stainless steel flex joint to prevent cracking from torsional vibrations. V-band clamps are included and provide a leak-free seal. B&G advises that you may need to swap out your rubber lower radiator hose for a universal-fit flexible metal one, as they have been known to dry and crack over time. We cut ours a little shorter and were able to move it a substantial distance away from the crossover. If this fails to solve the problem, we'll address it at a later date.
