gutted cats from stock mid-pipe. need help fast! 2003 Mustang GT
hi everyone, i own a 03 gt. a few days ago i decided to gut out my cats from the stock H pipe. it wasnt a very smart desicion on my part but wats done is done.
a few problems accrued after i bolted the h pipe back on.
1-there is a leak, one in the left pipe where i welded and a leak on the right gasket.
2- a check engine light keeps going on but doesnt give me any codes, it gives me N/A.
3- i feel like i lost some power as well.
i am planning on buying a performence mid pipe once i get enough money, but for now are there any suggestions on wat i can do to fix these problems.
P.S. i do have 2 high flow magna flow cats, but they are 3 inch pipes instead of my 2.25 inch pipe, if i cant find a solution to these problems i will try to put the high flow cats on, but i rather go catless.
