Default Found a hole in my Y pipe... :(

Right infront of the cat... front bank... and it looks like its right on the weld.... can I just use some of that muffler crap since the hole is so small? Or should I just take it somewhere and get an extra bead of weld around it?

I also cannot keep a donut gasket for longer than a month to save my life. Besides the hangar off the oil pan... I dont have another hanger anywhere near there... isn't there supposed to be one near the shifter? towards the passenger side? I see 2 bolt holes.. but got no stud, or hangar on there.. ??

fix the hole the right way, get a small bead welded on it

as far as the other hangar goes, i haven't the fondest idea
my 3 previous mtx's didn't but my 2 atx's did

my cats were rotted out bad but still good internally, metal very thin, I cut the heat shields off and got a few cans of 3 dollar muffler puddy from napa. Spread it all on them and so far 4k miles and no problems with leaks

Well I got a tube of that muffler mender "stuff" but still I have to seriously try to address my issue with the mounting surface there.. Its either not perfectly round or something...

My friend was talking about welding that thing solid all around the damn gasket and all... Got free sticks... anyway.. and then maybe welding a bunch onto the collector and making the thing about 1/2" thick all the way around... then behind that where its straight.. put use "sleeves" ? he says they're easy to use / take off, replace when ya need too... just wondering if anyone has done this... and if so.. I would think I would certianly need a hanger on the cat back end of it... ??


Edit: I'll go get a pic of the 2 areas here..... to be continued

Ok... not sure what you can see with these.. but heres a look... you can see where this is leakin...



and here's the gasket I keep blowing apart... I've even got the one bolt so tight its working its way into the damn pipe.. and probally should be banged back out.... :( I wish I had a welder / knew how to weld... :( I need to get this SHO to be a little less obvious..



Is anyone elses Y-Pipe this close to the subframe? It's not a problem or anything.. but I'm talkin less than 1/4" away.... it never hits... (no shiny spots..) The other Y's I've seen here look like they are in a different spot.. ? Supposedly I have a SHO Shop Y pipe from years ago... I didn't buy it thru them so I don't know for sure.... just something else I thought of..

The y pipe to the rest of the exhaust, I blow that out like once a week, I gave up, I used to use high temp rtv and that worked (will work for you if its not a bad leak), now its just so bad I really don't care anymore

Use the WALKER Part # 31372 donut gasket instead of the Felpro one. The Walker is much better. It looks like you could use a new spring/bolt kit, which are not expensive. I would get that cat welded.

Well.. they thread easy still.. I never have a problem getting them off.. I just try to get it tight until I feel like its about to break.. not sure how tight it should be.

Is the walker thicker? Is it advanced who carrys it? I got a new felpro one in the car now.. would love to see them side by side.. Thanks!
