It doesn't matter what you use as long as it holds the two pipes together tightly in the middle (no air gap) and is sealed afterwards around the edges. The problem comes if you have to take the pipes apart. Will everything be rusted together? The split pipe coupling is the nicest setup.

That is not something that ever occurred to me. Is it stiff enough to get the pipes aligned?

The split coupling from EFM is nice.

a piece of rubber with 2 hoses clamps on the ends, works really well actually dont have to seal it, its rubber and it slides up the pipe easy so no fighting cupplings or bolts its about 3/3 thick rubber

I used one in this picture. Connects the auger dump to the white PVC pipe. The fernco is black in color, the white strip is just the label I didn't take off. . My nephew called it a fernco last night, he had to educate me because it's just a rubber coupling to me.

on the keyboard, hold down the Ctrl button and tap the + button to increase the size as much as you want.

Learn something new every day. I used one of those about 15 years ago on my Grand Marquis, so I could attach a K&N filter I found tossed on the side of an off-ramp in Worcester. I spotted it weeks earlier .. then one day after pricing those filters out, I stopped & grabbed it. Didn't get rear-ended either! I bought a PVC reducer & attached one end to the filter, & the other to the "sewer pipe coupler" (Fernco) , and that to the stock intake plumbing. :D

Filter was on there when the car was stolen by Mexicans & lived in for a year, and was on there the day I sold it out in CA. 8-)
