HELP BBK X PIPE

Installed bbk off road x pipe and my car is stumbling sluggish and dies at low rpm could this be exhaust leak at the manifold flange?

Maybe an 02 sensor giving you problems? Any codes?

Hm...that's odd. Maybe soccer, or someone could address this situation. I'm about to install my bassani x pipe, I hope this doesn't happen to me.

What I would do in your situation is
1) put your old mid pipe back

2) call BBK im sure they can help. Or at least try.

What could cause the O2 sensors to go bad? Just curious. If I need to get new O2 sensors for myself before I swap my mid pipe il buy them.

It has to be something with your O2 sensors. The codes just might not have popped up yet or they are there without the check engine light on. I've done quite a few mid pipe changes. Just take out the 02 connections and clean them out. Make sure the wires didn't rip anywhere

O2 sensor issue or a leak. Or the set of MIL eliminators you got is wired up wrong or not clipped in all the way? It literally could be something that stupid. The pipe itself is not going to cause this so something got bumped/pinched/boogered somehow during the install.

I have a small leak issue with my BBK as well. Let us know how the UPR works for you. I think you will have a Nice sound difference too.

When I bought the BBK xpipe I didn't realize it was a hybrid of an H pipe and Xpipe. I also was fortunate enough to get a one piece pipe so that's what might of caused some leaking issues with the drivers side connection to the manifold.

Mine literally rattles between 2200-2500 rpms at the driver side manifold. It's the worst sound ever. I've tried re-tightening multiple times. I even put a hose clamp around where the ball goes into the socket to help put pressure on it. It helped for awhile but I think the hose clamp broke. So this is another reason why I'm getting another Xpipe that comes in different parts to help out with angles.
