View Full Version : Exhaust Leak

So I started my car up today and was driving down my lane and though 'huh, car sounds nice today." Take it on the road and give it some gas and I was fairly convinced then I had an exhaust leak. I had my windows down so I didn't really smell it much, but I'd presume the leak is where my Pacesetters Y-pipe meets the actual header piece.

It sounds fuckin gnarly though, and honestly I think I'm gonna put off on fixing it. Thing is I have inspection this month. Think they'll lemme slide by with that?

Mine always leaks there. I tighten the bolts up and with how bad our roads are it shakes itself loose again. Inspection depends on who you take it to.

Yeah the roads around here really are no good..Especially in Reading. Whenever I'm going to the pagoda, the roads I take getting there are kinda suckish.

But yeah, hopefully these guys'll be cool about it. By the way, we gotta like chill at the pagoda or something sometime when I can bring my car there.

Haha, that'd be a bit of a drive for you, but its cool up there. Its definitely worth checking out when they're actually doing the hill climb race there. They had a few Camaros there last year, I think a Corvette or 2, and a bunch of other stuff.

Oh but hey Slasher, maybe I could bum another part off ya lol. I noticed that you don't carry around your spare tire in your car so, do you have the actual spare tire hold down bracket piece by chance? Mine never had mine since I bought it, and it gets annoying having my spare tire rattle around in the back. I have the piece that would actually tighten into the bracket if I had it.

Hopefully sometime when I'm free I can come get that lower intake off your hands. Duryea is a badass road, gotta love the hill climb.

That'd be sick if you could hook me up with one lol. I just went to the GM dealer with no luck.

That'd be sick. You guys should come down for the hill climb race at least.

On another note, my exhaust leak got worse (louder) and I'm lovin it lol..trying to find people who know inspection stations that'd pass me. It's almost essentially like I'm running open headers on the driver's side. I passed like 4 cops going to and coming back from the Chevy dealer and they didn't say nothing so..

You wouldn't happen to know anyone, Blackmaro, would you?

Fixed it. Turned out the y pipe came out from the connector piece that goes up to the headers. The clamp got loose somehow. Gonna miss the sound honestly..

Well this has me wanting to mess with my exhaust now. Might eventually upgrade to a borla exhaust or possibly go true duals, dunno..

Well, after I get it inspected I think I'm gonna loosen it a bit again because I'm missin that sound..Not fully off though like it was before :P It sounded like a mix between a tractor trailer and a rally car. It was just stupid loud.
