O/R Midpipes

Is a new "ticking/clicking/hissing" sound coming from underneath the midpipe area of the car normal with O/R midpipes?

Some say it's normal (the lifters being more audible), a "sound leak" (increased airflow going through the midpipe), and others say their O/R midpipe had no additional sound other than what came out of their tailpipes.

Hissing and ticking sound is almost always a exhaust leak.

Although, some x pipes have a distinctive tick such as the magnaflow.

I've got the Pypes o/r h (4 piece). Had a shop weld the "H." Had another check the entire exhaust system with mic + headset with car running. No leak to be found. Both shop owners said it was just from going catless.

Leak sound is still there. Cold start hiss = LOUD for 30 secs, then only comes back after acceleration under a load.

Can't figure it out

Gonna report back in here. Sprayed the suspected leaky spot (where I've already had it welded) with soapy water and revved it, little bubbles went flying. So I still have a leak.

Although I'm still interested in hearing about this "whoosh" sound everyone is talking about with their non-leaking o/r pipe...

I hate slip fit connections personally.
Thing I like about the kooks is the flange they use, only downside is if you have to install and remove them a few times the flange starts to bend by the bolts.

I have that "whoosh" sound also. It comes from right underneath me an is only there on acceleration. I figured it was just a sound extra air going through the mid pipe but glad to know I probably have a leak.....


Yes I edit my posts a lot, auto correct likes to sabotage me!
