Just wanted to add to Alex response.
A lot of the times, those flex pipes fails from too much movement from the engine. Weak motor mounts will cause the pipe to flex way too much and it fails.
The reason for the pipe is movement of the engine. Since it sits sideways, it moves and if they did not have a flex pipe in the system, a pipe would actually fail.
