hey bunna, can you tell where its coming from?

i wouldnt think that you would lose any power, if you lost any back pressure it prob. wouldnt be much unless you have a huge leak.

Backpressure is bad anyway, its velocity you want to be worried about and if you didnt hear it from inside the car then chances are its not big enuf to make a difference either way.

when i had a whole in my exhaust, I just screwed a big, short bolt in it's place. i'm sure it's just a temporary fix, but it worked for me...8,265 miles and counting lol

to an extent backpressure can be good for a NA engine, if its FI tho the less back pressure the better.

well the leak is from where the home made cat meets the flex... i guess i dind't watch it to closely when i was making it. the leak is shooting from the bottom part of that connection...... (i was wondering why is my engine is smoking, thought it might be from the wrapp on the flex.... becuase it was still holding up its color of the silcon spray compared ot hte header; black now)

can i use anything that will make this a niceR seal until the warm come back so i can work on it again? will the high temp silicon work? if anything eles please give me some suggestion please.....


the noise from the leak isn't even heard... the only way i found it, was from me checking for any oil leak after changing it out in this darn snow.....( i sure do pick some good time to work on my car; freaken cold/snowing days.




p.s. its leaks like this .... / / | | \ \
