Default 3rd cat & cat back leak

theres a gap between the last cat and the cat back exhaust.
its a bosal with the stock cat.

i dont think its leaking. squirted the area with soapy water with a water gun and no bubbles.

its pretty quite when its idle no probs.

no whine except the turbo sound.
but when a wot it has a "phf phf phf" sound to it, that normal? not very loud

i squirted the dp to turbo no leaks, no bubbles.
maybe im just ranting. any input is appreciated

I have the same cat-back, and the fact that the stock spring bolts weren't long enough made me nervous too at first... but if you need extra peace of mind, while your car is idling, listen to the exhaust from the back, and then listen under the car. If there is a substantial leak in that area, you'd hear it.
