Hey guys.

ive had a rattle on my car that has gradually got louder and its been bugging me for a few months now. been trying for AGES! to try and figure out what the hell it was.

well today i think i finally found out what it is.

this flexi joint!


its been driving me mad! at certain rpm it rattles. :squint:

so im going to order a new donut gasket for it and see if that fixes it.

so anyone else with the weaponR got a rattle?

I have been hearing something change in the exhaust note. Lemme know if you find that the doughnut fixes it. With my motor mounts getting weak from extra power my doughnut has seen better days.

yea im thinking about my engine mounts now too, to try and take some stress off the joint on the exhaust.

the bottom mount looks like it will be a pain to change.

im gunna order a new gasket tomorrow so hopefully thatl sort it.

has anyone ever fixed a similar rattle? how did you do it?

mine also developed a wimpy rattle about a year in, despite the aforementioned hanger that was installed from day one.
car sounds like a riced out civic when i am stopped in D.

i'm considering switching back to stock...

Try see if you can eliminate it by compressing/decompressing the 2 springs from header and test pipe?
