    Sorry for the late reply guys !! @Mkeuseman, this is simply PVC plumbing pipe . Had multiple friends worried about the HEAT and melting , but you have to remember these are submerged in water so getting it to the temp to warp or melt would more than likely NEVER happen . I attached it with  1inch stainless screws going through the factory thick rubber tips as well as putting some 4200 around the inner lips as you would normally do on a plumbing connection with primer & glue . 

     

    @Nautimech226simple 3inch PVC . 2 Street 90s and 1 Y connection . Make sure to buy the CLEAR glue and primer as well . Otherwise your going to have purple sticking out of the connections from the primer .  I then Used stainless screws around each connection point, as well as 3M4200 to really lock it in place 

     

    There is no bracing holding it up because the fitting is so tight i dont think it is necessary . Some need it because the tube are so far apart . On my Moomba the exhaust is very close and the tubes are almost touching the factory plate . The only issue i see is obviously adding a trim tab in the center , it will need reworked . Have ran the bopat with it 2 times as of now both wakeboarding and surfing with out any issue . WORKS GREAT and cant beat the price !!
