I recently installed a UPR catted X and have a small leak on the driver side. The bolts are snug and I installed the cone that came with the kit.

Any tips? Should I try installing without the cone?

Start looking for where the leak is coming from exactly? You might not have it seated properly up where the x meets the headers/manifolds. Just because the bolts are snug doesn't mean it won't leak. If you don't have everything seated in the correct manner it will leak.

I removed the cone, pushed the pipe up higher and tightened it up real good. It ALWAYS leaked with that stupid cone till I took it off.

Thanks for the tips guys, reps given. I think I'll try removing it. I am very confident it's seated correctly.

What is that cone for anyway? It doesn't even seem necessary???

I was told some years the exhaust manifolds have different shaped ports. Never ran into that issue though.
