Exhaust leak?

Hi, I installed a new set of shorty headers on my 07 v6 mustang. Since then I have heard a clanking/ticking sound from the driver side headers. Could this be a exhaust leak or something else?

You probably have a leak. What gaskets did you use, how did you tighten them down? I'm assuming you used all new gaskets too, at least I'd hope so. Header bolts or nuts love to come loose after a few heat cycles btw, this is why I always use stage 8 bolts with Percy's aluminum header gaskets. Not sure if they make a set for the 4.0...

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

It was thicker gaskets that come with my headers. I'm gonna try and tighten them down more tomorrow.
