I just decided that im going to staright pipe my 93 taurus gl.. Ive decided that im going to cut the muffler box straight off by my self and attatch a pipe that will make the car sound louder.. Theres only one problem i have to figure out how to re connect the pipe that is in the middle of the exhaust and cat... It recently disconnected and it seems that the pipe just ditatched from its bracket ..Any suggestions on how to do this??? i need some suggestions on how to fix the pipe...

Louder is an understatement.... it will be EXTREMELY loud with a straight pipe.... loud enough to attract any cop in the area for noise laws violations. Besides a straight piped Vulcan sounds like crap, IMO. Just put on a different muffler.... Flowmaster, Magnaflow, etc.

You have the stupid spring coupling on the G2. You can either buy a flex pipe and have it put in or buy a repair kit for the spring coupling. I got one at NAPA a few years ago. Not cheap though.

Cheapest fix is probably a muffler shop as long as they don't try to sell you a new exhaust.

Unfortunately your OEM stuff is probably not serviceable. Usually what happens is the flared part of the cat back at that joint is what erodes away.

The ebay link is Not what you need.

If it were me i would just go to an muffler shop and tell them to fix it. I doubt if you would be able to repair this at home.

If you were you definitely need to find out what the OD diameter is of the pipe before and after the area that needs repaired.

Then maybe you could find a flex pipe and use some muffler clamps after sawing off the required amount of pipes to get a straight clean and accurate length for the part that you are installing.

I'd take it to an exhaust shop too. Exhaust work sucks, and it's even worse if you're in the driveway without a lift.
