Flex pipe placement...

I picked up a 3" section of flex pipe for the Turbo Coupe as I read it takes some of the tension off of the turbo and the header. Right now have a factory IHI but have a T3/T4 to go on it and not sure if the factory support will fit with the factory manifold. What does everyone say for placement on the downpipe? thanks for any inputs.

My thought would be to put it in the DP pretty close to the turbo.

The factory turbo support bracket fit perfectly with a T3 upgrade. FYI, a "trick" to make the factory support bracket easier to install: Use a cutoff wheel to cut the two holes that attach the bracket to the turbo thru to the ends of the bracket, making them into a "U" shape with an open end. Then you can install the turbo, and just slide the bracket on the 2 lower turbo mounting studs.
