Thumbs down I officially fail ... I am one with the suXorS

I can't for the life of me get my exhaust to stop leaking
And my catback sits all tilt-o-ugly in the rear.

After taking the thing apart three times over the weekend I've learned two things.
1. the force is not strong with me
2. I hate working under ramps

I've never had this much trouble on an exhaust, so now some shop will get my money because I suck and am out of patience.

So RMIC - can someone recommend a good shop anywhere from Bountiful to SLC?

It's leaking where the downpipe meets the mid-pipe, I've tried it with donut and without. I "think" I was able to seal the rear section of the mid-pipe.

This isn't my first exhaust to install, but it will be the first I will pay to have done right.

Sorry I don't know who Lance is where does he work?

down2earthsubie, he is a freelance car guy his dad has the ultimate set of tools. He can fix it.

Did you buy new gaskets? Once you take them off you shouldn't try to use them again, they almost always leak

Injen downpipe - megan catback - new gaskets all around.

I'm hoping someone knows of a shop when I can drop it off and pick it up after work, I'm slammed during the week.

lance can do it after work while you wait. It shouldn't take more than a couple hours to fix.

I had problems with getting my downpipe to hook up to my stock catback. I had to have my friend push down from the top, and the other pull on the catback to get it close enough. Its just a matter of getting the exhaust hangars to flex a lil bit. once its been on for a week or so, get back under there and tighten the bolts and nuts down again and it should be fine. but i don't know why it would be sitting funny

The first turboback I put on this car installed smoothly, same with my old 04 sti. So I don't know what gremlins I stirred up this time, but I'm done being cramped underneath a set of low ramps. At least the weather was nice

I forgot Solid was so close, might have to give them a call tomorrow - thanks
