i could but i dnt feel like messing with that. i always wanted to get an exhaust for my car but with it not having a s many miles on it i figured no need to but now it has that leak.

I have a 2.5 Trubendz without the HFC. I love the way it sounds. But almost everyone that has one says they had problems with the install. But mine installed perfect. If you have the SAP on your ST you can tell Trubendz and they will modify it to fit.

I know the 3" kits you have to weld the hangers on when you install because of the pipe being 3"

have you verified the leak? as the stock muffler does actually have a hole in it from the factory for the water to drain out, and you could be hearing the noise from the hole.

i havent had a good look at it but i can tell by looking at the heat shield by the exhaust has carbon build up. and plus it crackles a lot more than ever
