Are they suppose to sound like this? I have torqued the botls, installed new round gaskets seals direct from ford. I can't find any exhaust leaks anywhere. I took a hose and found the ricer sound coming from the upper ypipe cat. Is this normal? Will it quiet down over time? It has a cheap cherry bomb muffler which I am pretty sure is what is cauing the poping noise. The ypipe cats are brand new.

Well the brand new converter was not sealed right from magan flow. It is leaking out the back converter.. So now I have to have the leak welded shut. Which means I have to yank the converter out, buy new gaskets again and take the car down for smog again and pay another $50 bucks. Which now brings the smog total to $610... Flow master from now on. California SUCKS!!!!!!

Flowmasters go bad pretty quickly. The insides of the resonance chambers has really thin metal compared to other companies out there. So they sound good for a little bit, then its all over.
