I'd have to say thats a gasket issue and maybe a mount issue also. I had the same problem too but then I bought the felpro head gasket kit to redo all my gaskets an I took off the cat mount an that mount under the engine with those out of the way and that thick meaty gasket it sealed up nice and tight and no longer have the power loss. In fact I have quite good gains from it not svt good but better than stock and the curly fry looking ones. Ifor one think done right like I did the second time >_< it's not bad at all for ebay stuff. If you or anyone else uses them again get the felpro gasket an be sure to remove both the exhaust mount off the engine to make a flush fit.

Let a muffler shop make the connection if you need something made that is working , I am not sure what the problem is maybe elaborate more or give me a call , you made the right choice with going 3 inch
