Is it a metal on metal noise? try removing the whole heatshield top and bottom from where the old cat was? Make sure all your bolts are tight especially if you lowered your subframe from installing your esmm

I was talking about the heatshield for where the cat converter was. I believe its the heatshiled, but it is jsut a metal piece you can unbolt. There should have been a top piece where the cat was. I had that problem and I removed it, problem solved. Make sure your subframe bolts are on tight keep checking them everywhere once in while just like how you should check everything. Hope this helps.

check your sway bar to header clearance. when you raise the car on a jack the sway bar moves and could be the problem. basically you need to raise it from the rear then check but be sure to use jackstands. oh and if you can hardly fit your finger between the exhaust and body that might be a problem.

i had the same problem man. but mine was way worse. the bpipe on my hks was actually held up against the body by the dcrh. but anyways what i did to fix it was go to an exhaust shop and tell them to heat up ur bpipe and bend it just a little. after i did that no bangs at all.
