    Exhaust leak???

    Installed an Invidia q300 in my 13' sedan with stock down pipe. I used an adapter to attach the 3' pipe to the 2.5' down pipe. It sounded great at first then I had a hard stall and since that it doesn't sound quite as loud and there's a burning smell from the exhaust. Could I have rattled something loose from the stall?

    Is it a new exhaust? Could be the burning smell of a new exhaust. U can check if it's leaking by looking on the ground for water

    that the new exhaust smell it will go away in time. The harder you rip on it the more itll smell. its just the coating inside the piping from the manufacture. It will eventually burn off. Nothing to be afraid about. Same thing happened to me
