    Well I just put a Dynomax Super Turbo on my truck today. For the most part I'm impressed with it. Although when I let off the gas you can hear it going put-put-put-put from underneath. I used clamps on the inlet and outlet side. I was going to weld the outlet side because the pipe goes in the muffler (instead of the muffler outlet overtop of the exhaust pipe) but instead went with a clamp, so now it's kinda leaking out in that spot. My question is should I weld it? Or can I use the tape/putty the Advance store sells? I bought some and it says it's resistant up to 2000 degrees. Any input would be great!

    it isn't the same, it wasn't there before and it's very noticeable around that spot.

    Weld it and be done with it. Hell any muffler shop can do it for $10 bucks so unless your a cheapskate and like to do things half ass then yeah go ahead and put some putty on it.

    It's not that it was a half ass install. If it was my choice I would've welded the whole thing, but I don't have keys to the shop at work, and the guy who helped me was on a time crunch to leave at close. So I got done what I could with the time I was given. Saturdays are the only days I get some free time at work. The only reason I got the putty/tape was because I can't stand to hear the sound and wanted it fixed asap.

    I guess what I was getting at was that the inlet/outlet size should of fit tight and not leaked with new clamps, that has to be a loose fit if putty is needed.

    I guess if you want to call it half ass then yeah it was half ass done. But i've never used clamps before so I wasn't sure how tight they should be, they already made a big print on the muffler and I didn't want to screw anything up. It doesn't really matter though I welded it today at a buddies house....and it doesn't sound like crap :D

    Well then you did right so that's what matters, personally what I was getting at was that it should of been done that way in the first place. It's all good though.
