Dezod Green Header install problem ***UPDATE w/PICS***
***UPDATE ON PG 3 w/PICS***
After waiting 2.5 months, I finally got my Dezod Green Headers! Couldn't wait to get them on. Took it to a shop and after a few hours, they ran into an issue of the down pipe hitting the transmission mount. They had to file down the mount a bit but the pipe still touches. All the other bolts, mounts, vclamps are tight, just the down pipe touches the tranny mount right after the v-clamp. Hope the pictures show this problem clearly.
Due to the down pipe touching the mount, it rattles like crazy. Not sure what to do...anyone else run into this issue with their green headers? Was this installed incorrectly? I took this to a reputable shop that is known to work on Lexus cars. They recommend I take this to a muffler shop and have them cut and extend the downpipe a bit so that the bend does not touch the tranny mount. Im thinking I shouldn't have to do this with the Dezod headers, especially how highly rated they are. Dezod green owners, please chime in!
