Brand New Exhaust - Same problem!
I had a powerflow cat-back system which sounded like it was failing....i was getting vibrations through the car, the noise was droning and didnt change pitch as i moved up and down the gears...i took it to an exhaust specialist and he said it was in ok condition, no holes just getting on a bit with a few dints on it (it was 2nd hand off a breaker) and was quoted 658 lifetime guarantee stainless steel in the process. Now if the car is new, ok go ahead.
It couldn't really be anything else, the tyres were changed last July on the teledials and there is a bit of inbalance but not much....so i bought a new cybox system, fitted it last night and the symptons are virtually the same!
Droning, vibrations, exhaust note fairly unchanged, i am pretty gutted. Where to start resolving this?
I am now not convinced its the exhaust at all. I am thinking engine mounts, knackered cat, driveshafts etc
Any help appreciated
