Maybe the guys that did it didn't put a gasket in, or a bolt is loose...
I know mine came loose cause they never used a split washer on my cat...

That won't tell us s**t!
Just take it back tomorrow if you think it's leaking, although it must be a s**t workshop if they didnt check it for leaks before letting you leave.
Have you heard any other E-Series with an exhaust and extractors?
Maybe you've just got weird expectations..

When I had my CAT fitted with my already installed Pacemaker comps and Redback system, I noticed a different sound too, almost tinny. I took this as being caused by having an unshielded Hi-Flo stainless CAT and stainless piping (2.5") fitted to the mild steel system. Has settled now and almost lost the tinny sound. Installer said it was due to the system flowing more freely and the stainless cat.

the comps will sound different to the the stock manifold and the the other pacie headers. it because of the pipe arangement.

Probably a droning sound you're hearing.

or is it a hisssssssssssss sound at WOT?. if it is, its normal. the thick factory cast iron manifold used to soak up the sound.
