Hey guys so yesterday my little brother and I were driving to the phillies when I was like 10 mins from my house I heard like a pop and a loud noise. I think the exhaust manifold cracked, because it sounds like a wicked harley at idle, and a wicked cammed dragster. ahhaha, so I drove it home and could tell that it lost some compression in it. I called my dad and he said its probably an exhaust leak. So I think its time for some headers and some bigger valves and possibly cams :D . So yeah downside it probably won't get done till like two or three weeks from now :( . So I have to get my dad to call his friend up who owns a machine shop and hopefully get hooked up.

Have you looked at the car to be able to tell for sure what it was or are you just guessing?

Could have been the POS Gasket on the passanger side exhaust manifold. the one that goes to the midpipe

we haven't looked at it yet but um that's my guess, my dads, and a friend of mine. But when my dad comes home hopefully its still light out I want to take the front passenger tire off to get a better view under there and see what happened. I started it today for my friend and was like jesus christ thats loud, P.s. you can also smell i guess its fuel or oil too when it runs. Ill you updated when i find out more too
