Yeah I think I can blame a shop actually for it..user error or something. But when I bought the car the hanger was undone as well on one side so probably a combination of both.
Oh well fixed now.
AGAIN...I think I CAN BLAME THE EXHAUST shop (supreme muffler....quite ghetto) since they obviously messed up the pipe when they put the high flow cat on. I asked why the exhaust was a bit louder than stock and they said it was obviously the cat since they had never SEEN high flow cats like that
and tried to convince me that was the problem. So took it across the street to Midas (I know I know but hopefully they are smart enough to notice an exhaust leak) and they said IT SOUNDED NORMAL. Still not satisfied I took it to a local indepenent shop that had it on the lift and was looking for leaks but they convinced me THE RESONATOR WAS MAKING IT SOUND LIKE THAT.... yeah....I guess I sort of accepted that it did get louder with the cat..EVEN AFTER WILLWREN said it was probably a leak
Took it to Supreme muffler they fixed it for $10.. previously they charged 70 for a 10 minute cat install....not because I wanted to go back but the tail pipe broke 2 BLOCKS FROM THERE and they had no cars.....at all...anywhere.
but now the car is VERY VERY quite. It was not that loud before but it obviously had a pinhole leak.
