Ugh. Step backward.

I was out the other day doing a pull when bang…  braaa (very loud exhaust).  “What the heck was that?”  My first thought was a v-band clamp holding the mid-pipe to the downpipe let go and the exhaust separated.  I brought the car back to the garage and took a look underneath:


Oh, that’s not good.  Something on my 034 Motorsport exhaust system failed.  I detached the mid-pipes for a better look:

A clean break right where the reducer attaches to the catalytic converter.  Great, car is down and now I need to find a shop to weld it back together.
