Exhaust flow and coupling direction; can I use a wrong way fit?
Working out making a side exit exhaust for my 2007. I have a nice titanium slip on that ends in the exact same diameter as the link pipe; I would much rather expand the steel link pipe than do the same to the titanium slipon. This would make the junction the 'wrong way' for the gas flow, but my question is: can I use enough red permatex gasket to keep it sealed, or is this not reasonable?
My other idea was to crimp down the link pipe to fit inside the slipon, the only downside being that the slip on is already necked down at that point so I would be creating a small section of more narrow piping and I'm not sure if it will have any real effect.
