Growing up is an option
i have the exhaust system out of my car while i'm waiting for a new drive shaft and noticed a few exhaust leaks. there was one where i didn't tighten the flange enough, two where the exhaust shop didn't weld all the way around on the pipes and i noticed that the x-pipe had multiple leaks evidenced by black soot. there was one on the adaptor "band" that goes to one of the in/out fittings that was about 2" long and many places along the seams of the outer edges where it's been leaking. it's only a couple of months old. there seems to be an issue with their quality control. i had the muff shop weld up the places where it's leaking but i'm still going to contact Magnaflow about the issue. it is a $90 part after all. just a heads up.
