2003 Gt with American thunder catback and Upr off road X pipe
I have had a nightmare with this pipe it doesn't want to fit on without leaking. I have heard that it isn't supposed to leak it's supposed to be a good fit. I have a few questions for anyone that has it

1. The american thunder catback is a little bigger than the stock catback and the connection where the x pipe meets the catback is leaking and it's not sagging.

2. They sent me two different cone gaskets. One that fit into the pipe and can't possibly do anything to stop a leak and one that gets stuck in the pipe. (drivers side is where I'm told it goes)

3. For the flange on the drivers side I tried cutting out a gasket out of header material and using that. ( it disintegrated and leaked worse). Then I bought a header flange gasket from the local store and it diddn't help.

I am contemplating removing the whole x pipe and all the gaskets and using some High Temp Copper silicone gasket stuff and putting it on all the connections.

Any help is appreciated

Yea I know one goes on the drivers side manifold but I'm not sure which one. I have tried both with a leak still but I'm pretty sure that it isn't leaking on the drivers side because I've taken it off and tried so many things I silicon-ed that side up. It has to be leaking on the passenger side and where it connects to the catback. Did you have the stock catback?
