Hey everyone,
How is everybody? Happy 4th of July!!!
Well , heres what happened:
I was showing a Civic how to take a chicane on the highway and then all I heard was a loud exhaust sound. I thought it was the Civic but after a couple high revs I found out it was me!! I was down shifting into 2nd and then "brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr". It sounds like the exhaust piping came loose or got a hole in it somewhere. I pulled over to inspect it and its coming from somewhere under the hood, under the engine. The car stumbles at take off and I have no power whatsoever when I floor it. And it is LOUD!!! Is this a blown headgasket or something else? Hopefully the details I provided can give you some clues. Would the car still run if it was a headgasket?
Is this a good excuse to get headers and new exhuast piping. I now sound like a big fat Rice boy riding around. =-(

Weird. I would say some of the bolts fell off linking the primary to the secondary but since you have a stock manifold thats unlikely. I had the same symptoms though with a leak with my Hotshot.

well, thanks for the input.
I guess I'll be going down to my favorite shop and having them take a look.
I think the exhuast manifold came loose.
It sounds like its coming from behind the heat shield. Everything is stock on the motor still. And it just hit 133,000.
I keep geting funny looks from people round me. HOW EMBARASSING!!
Any other suggestions anyone?
