Need help fast car on jack stands!!!!

So I'm putting my h pipe on and I keep getting a leak from the spot where the driver side manifold and pipe meet. What might be the problem? Ive tightened it, repositioned it, everything!! Help fast!!

How bad is the leak? Small little whisper or full on "i should weld it". I have a very small leak in the same spot and it is no problem at all.

Are you sure you've tried lining up everything? You may have to fool with the overaxle pipes some to get a good angle on them as well

Look for a gasket or something to get you a good seal. I would probably just weld it.

I would just buy a setup that has awesome fitment like the Borla! And if it has a leak I wouldn't just live with it. If your dead set on keeping a poorly designed setup just have it welded.

Price makes no difference. Some company's do more r&d on there products for fitment then others.

Everybody doesn't want to spend a butt load on borlas overpriced stuff. It may be good but it's not THAT much better than a lot of other brands that fit up just as good.

Where is it leaking from? Flange or weld?

I guess so. There's just absolutely no way I'd even consider buying borlas stuff. Way overpriced. You can do two or three mods for one set of borla axle backs and be faster and sound just as good.

Get exhaust weld in a can from autozone. Apply it to the joints on the h-pipe and it'll stop any leaks. That's what I did for my bassani x-pipe and haven't had a problem for over a year. Just be sure you correctly use it.
