I recently purchased the flowmaster kit, installed it today, Went very smooth, except for the tips.

Torquing the bolts down to a level where the tips were secure on the pipe resulted in the bolt snapping. I went out and got new bolts, both of those snapped as well.

I found 2 more, quite sturdy looking bolts, Ive managed to get the tips to the point I cant pull them off anymore, but they still have some side-to-side play. If I torque these bolts anymore Im sure they are going to break as well.

Im going to go to the store tomorrow and see if I can find something even more durable, but I was just curious if anyone else with this kit had ever had this issue?

Can't say that I have. I had a similar experience on Friday at the flange end of my Mountune system. While attempting to remove it with ratchets, one of the bolt heads snapped off. Sometimes you can have too much torque!
