I run one on my cat with a CY 25.4. I have been very happy with it. Very good power but a very sharp when it hits the pipe. Like hitting a switch. Some don't like the pipe to hit that hard but I do.

water leak would kill some speed, use a no water leak flange and gasket sealant.

From the looks of it, the water is only cooling through the manifold??? Not the whole connection like a Hanson, Cooper or other style.

He's talking about the header seal to the pipe which leaks black greasy burnt oily stuff, not water. High temp RTV or a short bit of silicone will fix it right up.

I think the pipe is the China copy of the CC race pipe.

how about using a exhaust coupler from a car. zip tie both ends should seal it up nicely.

I used high temp copper rtv sealant and it no longer leaks. It has been a really good pipe for the money.
