Exactly what is the purpose of a flex pipe and what are its components and how does it work?

The purpose of the flex pipe is to give the exhaust some flexibility. On front wheel cars since the motor is mounted crosswise, when you give it gas the motor rocks and would over time break the exhaust pipe or even the exhaust manifold. On rear wheel drive cars, the exhaust pipe can twist which gives the needed flex. As far as components, it is just a woven metal sleeve over a piece of pipe that isn't attached to the ends of the flex tube. The outside woven part allows the exhaust to flex.

What is a exhaust flex pipe?

An exhaust flex pipe is a braided stainless steel pipe that allows for some movement between exhaust pipes (usually around 6-8" long). It is made of interwoven wires of stainless steel.

It attaches your exaust manifold to your catalytic converter. There is also a brace for the "J" pipe that runs from the pipe right under the manifold and attaches to your engine block. It has been known to cause a hole in the pipe where it wraps around.

Some (front wheel drive) cars have a flexible piece of pipe that connects the exhaust manifold to rest of the exhaust system. The length of pipe is designed to allow the engine to rock back and forth on its mounts. Without the flex joint, the movement of the engine would damage the rest of the exhaust system.
