Re: exhaust leak
That's exactly the same set up I had. I had to smog my car in March and it cost me about $1000.00 by the time I was finished. Both of my O2 sensors were burnt up from my H pipe. I had to get it smogged fast so I ended up spending too much to replace the H pipe set up. Since then I've seen some better than stock replacements for the H pipe set up. In the Summit catalog there is an X pipe set up with cats that looks identical to the stock one I replaced for much more money, but with wider pipes and they claim to gain 12-25 horsepower. Of course this is compared to stock numbers, not to the H pipe set up. Since I replaced my H pipe I've noticed that my car is not as fast through the 4000-6500 RPM range, so be prepared for that. I'm glad I did it though, so I don't have to worry about it everytime I have to smog my car in this communist state I live in (California).
