Default Think I may have an exhaust leak..

Installed the whitelline steering rack bushing over the weekend, I may have tweeked the header section of the exhaust. Not sure if it's because of my own sinus issue, but the exhaust note at 3000 RPMs and up seems a bit more droney(?) The car (automatic) also downshifts more readily pass 3K, almost as if there's less torque. The car also seems to blurp a bit more in idle. I remember distinctly that my friend asked if I installed an exhaust when we were testing the steering. I didn't think anything of it until I took the car onto the freeway today.
BTW, love the bushings, the steering feels much tighter, especially noticeable at speed.
