Update:

Got the exhaust welded yesturday. Car is far quieter but still has a ticking sound. Now I am sure the Y-pipe is leaking Car pretty much lost all the power it had gained from the mods. . Plans for today, Getting a new 02 sensor today, Retorquing the headers again, and resetting the PCM . Hoping to have a better report in 2 days after the PCM relearns again.

You lost all the torque because you decreased back pressure. Add a back pressure piece back in and you'll probably get torque back.

Trust me.. headers kill low end to a certain degree, which is why we always tell people that changing the exhaust size is bad.

The tick might be the headers..

The power is not just in the low end. The car from 0-90 feels sluggish compared to before. Its ok this PCM on this car is very picky. I pretty sure I will nail it down.

You know a decent way to get some low end torque back, scan that thing make sure of no knock and drop a pulley size

While the car had the exhaust leak it had great mid- range and top end power.After we had everything welded. The car got its low end grunt completely back, but then the rest of the powerband became very sluggish almost like the car felt before the headers and rockers were installed.

How small did you say the exhaust was reduced to as you worked your way back ?
