HELP with Magnaflow Catted X pipe

I just bought and installed a Magnaflow catted X pipe today... I bought it used off Ebay for $175.00...A good price for this thing which retails for $630.00,,, Anyways..

I have Foed Racing shorty headers and I have a leak where the header and the down pipe meets... the pipe doesn't look bent or out of round......I was woundering that maybe it got streached out being on another car...Maybe I need to take it to a muffler shop and have it fixed...

Has anyone had this happend to you and how should I fix ?????

Any suggestions wouls be great!

thanks


I WISH I COULD GET RID OF THE KNOCKING NOISE IN MY FRONT END. I'M TIRED OF SPENDING MONEY ON IT... IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You might try rotating the flanges around. They bend which can leave some areas of the clamp surface with less clamping pressure. Rotating the flanges around a couple times and tightening can make the flare round and fit better. I also put some copper high heat rtv on the surfaces when I put it together for the final time.
