Exhaust Manifold To DP Flange?
Ok I am at my wits end on this exhaust leak that has been there since day one
. So here are the pictures of the flanges. Yes I know one of the studs is in backwards but it didn't matter when it was the other way. The EM'* are welded and the donught gasket in ther eis straight from GM. The problem I am having is that the flanges at the top are hitting when the motor is torqued which in turn opens at the bottom. I have had five exhaust shops work on it in the last year and none of them have fixed it yet! The last one was the shop that did my cat. I asked them to fix it and when they were done I asked if they fixed it they said yes it'* all silent. As soon as I got 10 mins away it opened up again! Here is my best guess: The DP is at the wrong angle and needs to be rebent up to fix this. Is there a flex DP that will work on the 93'*? Take a look and let me know what you think.
