Found my exhaust leak!
#1254332 - 06/08/06 01:45 AM



Leave it up to me to break it.

Looks like theres some kind of bracket missing from the bottom. I bet thats what did it.
I'll weld it back up tomorrow.

Wife after headers=

Maybe next year. I really cant do it right now. I usually spend approx. 1000.00 a year on it. After the radio and paint I'm just over that.

Its Illinois man. I passed in the 3L with my headers on.

Tell the wife it's preventitive maintenance. So what just happened doesnt happen again.

Any questions?
