Aside from the fact that I have lost 30% of my hearing from this thing, the massive vibration from under the turbo is killing me. I believe that since I put in IPD lower engine mount, blue poly engine mount, and QBM strut bar conversion brackets in, the exhaust broke from its bracket and is just bouncing around in there. Someone mentioned in a post that you should only do 2 out of those 3 options, and if doing the strut bracketks and the lower mount, that you should consider the black poly instead. <p>First question....should I remove the shield under the DP that supports the brake lines since the pipe bracket is vibrating like crazy on it. Next question, what is the best gaskets to use between the Svenske DP and the turbo, and from the DP to the Svenske sport exhaust. Biggest mistake ever putting that exhaust in. Now have a 4" round Magnaflow muffler in the center and another one toward the tailpipe. Has anyone used different exhaust hangers??? <p>HELP!!!! This exhaust is killing me. Any advice would be appreciated. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> Thanks guys.
