a/c on exhaust midpipe

So the other day I was at a stop light. Started going 1 to 2nd 2nd to 3rd 3rd to 4th I hear this awful sound. It actually sounded like the highway bumps on the right side. After hearing this my car a very little pressure. It sounded like an exhaust leak so I went to a muffler shop for them to lift it. This is where it gets weird. Where my midpipe and catalitic converter is welded was cut clean off by an a/c evaporater drip that happens to fall exactly where this weld is. So 10 degree water drops on this weld that is probably 600 degrees. I think it was a ford idea that cost me 80 bucks and a exhaust headache lol. Just an F.Y.I in case this happens to u. And I have a 04 v6 vert

This is a very very common problem on all 99-04 V6 cars. Went through it myself.
