    Does this Exhaust Sound right? *sound clip*

    Hi Guys

    Iv recorded a video of my exhaust, iv noticed its louder than it was when i first got it, the backbox in question is this:



    The sound i can hear a lot is that metallic ring, hits at about 3k, you can hear it in the car too, i think it may be a cheap 3rd party center section / cat

    Anyhows, heres the video:

    Can you elaborate a bit more on that, haha

    Where could it be leaking from?

    Sounds like its everso slightly touching something metal, and when you rev it hard it vibrates against it.

    Could be touching the heat shield, or the rear beam. Maybe one of you hangers has come loose or broken. Worth having a look, might be a simple fix.

    All hangers are ok, im gonna go to one of them garages that let you rent out a bay for couple of hours, sooner do that than let some failed mechanic, or exhaust fitters as some call them look at it and tell me a load of crap!!
