Default Need help find and potentially fixing an exhaust leak.

I can hear it around the turbo/downpipe area. But can't pin point it (even though it sounds loud..)
Plus not having a garage, proper lighting, or experienced eyes to look at it kinda hinders my ability to diagnose.
Anyone free this weekend?

Check the rubber from your y pipe to the turbo. Mine slipped off a little bit at one point. Other than that check all the bolts on your down pipe and up pipe. I just had a thought now as well. Spray soap water like you would on a tire looking for a leak and see what happens. Good luck!

Just fixed an exhaust leak on my it was leaking where the headers connect to the up pipe.. But when I listened to it I couldn't pin point it so I just went a head and checked all bolts and that was the spot

I'm gonna check everything here once the little guy cools down. It's a very loud and obvious leak, you can hear it especially when the hood is open.

Sounds like a hole to me. Or maybe a crack. Maybe your crack has a hole in it..
