    Small hole(leak) in decat pipe

    Hi people Iíve got a small hole in my decat pipe which is a two piece pipe held together by a U clip, could this affect my performance by much?

    They nearly all leak a little bit unless you have a very very good Flexi pipe fitted.

    Is it the adjustable length one they sell? I use that one to get around some fitment issues. Iíve swapped the useless u clamp out for a mikalor clamp and I have no leaks

    A small leal or blow after the turbo wont cause any measurable power loss,
    pre turbo a cracked manifold or blown gasket can cause a small power loss & more lag = more revs needed to get on boost
