Shouldn't that be welded all the way around? And duals on a 4cyl? Looks good though. Just take care of those tips.. found that the hard way on the f150.

Nice but your exhaust shop didnt weld all the way around your right side pipe...oh well... looks nice non the less! When i had my 40 put on I too noticed a wierd smell, i think its from the baffles being heated up and the fancy pant greasy packing stuff they put on em to protect them from rust while they are in the box...it will go away

PS I hate yall that dont live in the rust belt...no underbody rust...

i would get under it and check all the welds, then take it back to the shop and have them finish the welding job.
