Angry Not again!!!

Damn it! right after I get done fixing one leak, I find another one today! this time its from the one stud that I couldnt get to go in straight, and I kinda figured it would've leak aventually. But now I need to fix this stupid problem! I guess Im ganna have to get it re-tapped. Anyone know what this prosses consist of? Meaning, do you have to take off the Headers to do it?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Yeah, its probably just bc I did the Install! But I think If I can get this fixed, all will be good! (I hope)

I will talk to my dads buddy machanic who helped me fix my first leak. See if he can maybe do something. Its very small, and you can barely hear it, but I know its there and It will bug me if I dont get it fixed.
