Hey guys, just had a quick little question.

I just got a pypes O/R X pipe and the pypes violator catback. When I stop at stoplights with windows down or up I get this really strong gas smell. Is that because of the O/R x pipe or is there an exhaust leak somewhere or what. Just curious, thanks!

You can use baby powder to find small leaks around the connections.

If it isn't leaks it's just because of it being an offroad pipe. I get a gas smell all the time. That could be me too of course :)

The smell of gas will always be the worst for atleast a 100 miles of installation because of all the chemicals the pipe already has on it, takes some time for them to burn off. But you will always have a gas smell.
