I need some advice please.

I’m sure the flexi pipe in the exhaust manifold in my R52 (Cooper S) is blowing.

As the manifold includes the cat Which is fine I don’t really want to replace it.

Has anyone fitted a replacement flexi pipe that bolts in rather than welded?

I know I can buy a new one, but none are cheap.

It could also be the small precat as they are known to crack, or completely come apart, probably from excessive engine movement due to a bad mount. The precat is between the flex pipe and cat, and the seam that cracks is usually the lower side closer to the cat
