They are small sections that connect with the exhaust. If you're looking at the midpipe, look at the end of the pipe (where it connects to the headers). Imagine they cut a 2&1/2 inch section of each tip; it's a slightly smaller version of this. You put this smaller section into the bigger one (like stacking cups) and it forms a better seal to the header.

I think pipes made the flange too big so these smaller sections make a better seal to the header. As far as getting them call brenspeed, they were included in my kit. I think Brenspeed makes them themselves b/c they had a notice about them on the box that was not included in the pypes directions.

Hope this helps, Scott

The trumpeting is not bad.......for the car. However it's a sound some find to be "bad".

To describe it, if you're accelerating all of the sudden at a certain rpm let's say 2500 (my case) the exhaust gets really loud and raspy. Then after this rpm it goes back to normal. It's called trumpeting b/c when you accelerate it sounds as if a trumpet's hitting a high note and getting really loud in a certain rev range.

To get an example Warmachine's got a vid that should give you a good idea on this same thread, pg 3 i think
