The gasket it came with was still leaking even torqued past max specs.
Retorque your midpipe and axelback connections and put the top of your hand all around the flanges to check for a slight feeling of escaping gasses thru the gasket. (Right after cold starting) dont burn yourself!
Yea it ended up being a bad gasket, I used the oem one. & I got the flange changed on the midpipe to flat, so there's absolutely no hissing or escaping gasses, runs like a champ now! Thank you!
