After installing my pypes headers I have an issue with the dipstick being that it will not mount with the new headers thus making a weird noise while driving. Please help!

Oh okay I see. I'm thinking its the dipstick making that weird rattle noise as if a go kart does. Can't figure anything else. It's only on the driver side header not the passenger side.

When I installed my headers I found that the heat shield above the passenger cat was hanging down and vibrating on the cat. Maybe it's that

Mine wasnt that bad!! Did you used gaskets with the headers??
Yeah I used both stock and new gasket thinking it was a leak but yet it still makes that noise. I'm thinking its because the dipstick is loose or the gasket is still leaking air. As I said before the passenger side isn't making this noise. Only the driver side around the headers not near the cat.

Hmm...maybe it is a leak. But if you've got em bolted up to the cylinder head nice and tight then they should be fine! Did you bolt em on from the center out?

I don't recall to be honest. But when I feel around and there's no leakage. There was before but I tighten the bolts even more and solved the leakage problem.
