Hey guys. Posted about this a few weeks back. But this x-pipe is driving me up the wall. Ever since i had it installed I've been getting terrible vibrations. I've ran out of ideas and am contemplating on just selling the damn thing and buying a different brand. Just wish the fit and finish was better. I believe the vibrations are coming from the middle exhaust bracket but still unsure. Any ideas?
(First video is of the sound, and the second is where i think its coming from)

Many x pipes foul the center brace. Just use washers/nuts/spacers to lower the brace.

Thanks for the input. Would i need to buy longer bolts then since it will be spaced out?

Depends how many washers you end up using. As long as the bolt grabs a comfortable amount of threads, it will be fine.

If you really want it to look like OE, after you measure the spacer height you need, you can order alu/steel spacers in various heights and sizes from AliExpress. Looks a lot nicer than a stack of washers.
