Z22SE flexi pipe

Given the Z22SE's reputation for a lot of movement would it not make sense to fit a longer flexi section?

That would, in theory at least, reduce stress and increase longevity wouldn't it?
Oh I would totally expect failure. Just thinking it could be delayed, maybe significantly.. only one way to find out I suppose..
I'm in the same boat.when I bought the astra I can hear a light blow from the flexi .my gearbox mounts are knackered. So I've bought new ones and reinforced them.ive ordered a new cat and flexi from euro car parts with a middle section. At the minute I've got some daft aftermarket system. The down pipe from the manifold is 2 1/2 inch
