Apple! You're too fat! How many times have I told you to go on a low-energy diet? See what you're doing to the poor middle man?
User 4TUN3_ tells the story of this repair: My Y pipe completely broke when I reached highway speed. I was lucky not to lose the whole exhaust system. The duct tape held for at least 25 kms before it melted away. The fan belt, however, would probably last longer than the normal exhaust suspension rubbers.
