welded up and fixed now. the guy i had install my exhaust used only 1 hanger to hold up my true dual exhaust. He welded a piece of rebar to the 2 mufflers to keep the exhaust in together. So basically my exhaust was held up by 1 hamger and the headers. She gave in the weakest point which was the tube for cylinder #4

we're thinking it's a casting defect. but the problem is that hedman wants me to send the header to them in the US so they can look at it. The sending it's not the bad part. It's the "what the hell am I supposed to drive in the meantime" that's the problem

Whats that white tape looking stuff on the other pipes? Whats it for?
I ask cuz I have something similar wrapped around a pipe that runs parallel to the Cyl. 1,2,3 plugs and its starting to come off. I had to use some wire mounted like a twist-tie to stop it from falling off.

it's header wrap. I used it because my long tubes were causing severe heat soak in my starter and causing my starters to burn up after 3 months. it's crap get it off of your manifolds. they trap moisture in. Header is fixed now though. had to use some ******* engineering!! Jim

especially when it saves your unemployed butt from having to buy new headers!:t-up:
