Loud and vibrating? That's my EB @ 5000rpm lol.

You haven't blown an exhaust gaskit or seal somewhere have you?

Cheers

Might have a busted engine mount if its vibrating - an exhaust leak will just sound like crap really.

Yea I think it may be. When you take it to high revs and let it off quick it shakes the engine and car.

ACT, Australia

when the muffler in front of the rear wheesl on my ED crapped out, the car went very loud and vibrated the hell outta the car, almost like a massage though the seat ;). basically the outlet for the muffler had rusted out and the pipe fell outta the back of the muffler. new 2.5" cat back fixed that....

a blown cat normally results in blood normally splatterd inside any of the 4 wheel guards, a loud pop and a severley deflated cat left deposited on side of road, comon problem with big cars like fords
