did you install them yourself? its a silly thing but i never tightened my o2 sensors down all the way so they made a very annoying rattle around there ocassionally

Nope, I paid. The rattle seems like it is coming from the rear. I think it might be the flap which I already checked the vacuum line and oiled.

Might be time to change out the OEM exhaust.

ah ya that can do it. Sometimes the exhaust hangers can come loose. Or even the plate underneath holding the mid point of the exhaust up.

my exhaust setup cost me around 350 or 400 in total and i love it

I'm trying to find something that really isn't that loud. The headers really made a difference...too much sometimes.

Lost torque, Hp went up a little but it wasnt noticable. I am just running headers with stock exhaust now. Finding an exhaust that I like is to much of a headache.

Ah...but did you find out why you lost torque?

You wouldn't happen to have a dyno plot with the AFR would you?
