Installing Mac O/R H..need help Right away!!!

Ok guys, ive got it all on, but it sounds like its leaking bad up around the
header flanges where the two ball joints meet. When i rev it a tad it makes this fluttering sound and its coming from each side of the headers where it bolts to the Hpipe. I think i rememver someone saying something about not being able to use the stock studs on the header? Is that right? Because it almost seems like those little spacers in the middle of the stud are keeping it from tightining up enough..thus the leak. I really dont know what to do, ive tighten them on like a beast and it still has this fluttering sound right at thsoe flanges. I also have the stock gt mufflers bolted up to the H pipe now, so it shouldnt make that fluttering, should be somewhat mellow. Anyways, if you got an answer i need one quick man. Thanks guys

Paul

I wish I knew what to tell you, but I would probably try tightening it up without the spacers your talking about, and maybe some high temp RTV around the flange
