Re: found my exhaust leak

You can just patch that up with some Flex Tape.

I have been assured that it can patch, bond, seal and repair virtually anything.

It must be true. It's what the marketing folks have said.

Re: found my exhaust leak

I've got the new header sanded and painted.. just waiting for the 3 he mark so I can handle it. Then I have to inayall it to do a heat cycle to cure the paint. Then I get to uninstall it to wrap it then reinstall the new header.

Re: found my exhaust leak

I did have a fitment issue last night.. I do have the newer "big" intake manifold on my jeep.. on cylinder 6, the header was hitting the bottom of the intake.. I trimmed as much as I comfortable of trimming and when it still didnt fit I just knocked off the bottom of the locating dowel pin hole on the manifold and she fit right in..

All in all, she in now and quite again.

Re: found my exhaust leak

I also have just ordered the SFR motor mounts.. They're out of the trans mounts or I would have gotten the whole kit.

Re: found my exhaust leak

Really shouldn't wrap the manifold as it will cause crystallization of the metal making it brittle and easier to crack

Re: found my exhaust leak

So now that I finished the header, I noticed a loud noise at the front of the motor.. it's power steering time! Just finished doing the WJ ps pump upgrade and now I'm all quite up front. Still just waiting on the motor mounts from stinky fab
