So I just got my dual exhaust installed but I think theres something wrong with it. I'm not sure why but when I drove back from the muffler shop and parked my car I realized that there was a burning smell coming from the exhaust. Not only that but theres a ringing sound. The biggest problem though is that I though Tanabe Hyper Medallions were supposed to be reality quiet. these are ridiculously loud. I actually got a headache while driving on the freeway. Do i need a silencer or is there a potential problem with the exhaust? Also is the ringing coming from rocks n ****s being stuck in the exhaust? And how about the smell??? Here are a few pics. Sorry my car is really dirty I haven't had much time to clean it up.

The smell should be normal... probably some kind of coating inside the exhaust, my borla had the same smell for a few hours after install. It went away. As for loudness, I didn't think the Tannabe's were that loud, but I don't know, ive never heard them in person.

Might have to get a resonator. I have both the resonator and pre-muffler from my borla system if you get in a pinch and need one... don't know how big the piping is on the tannabe.

weird thing is that i already have a fat resonator on. this might sound hella cheesy but it's supposed to sound like a g35/350z but it sounds RIDICULOUSLY loud. Not even kidding. I still hear ringing in my ears and it's already been 2 hours. My car actually shakes in the freeway and on uphill it sounds like a war flik. I wasn't sure if the shop who installed it did the mounts wrong?

i actually had a shop do it for me but the guy was in a hurry so maybe he didn't do it correct? One thing though is that he actually cut the stocks and just welded everything together. The exhaust is from a 04 TL so he had to cut the exhaust in at least 4 different places. you think there might be a leak from an improper weld?

there has to be, the way your describing sounds like thats the only option i can think of. i think you should double check your welds and bring it back to the shop and have them look at it again.

pshh yeah i was in a hurry to get home so i didn't even realize. i'm hella sad now cuz of the cuts. well as long as they work by tommorrow i'll be happy. i should of just listened to you and did it myself. i thought i would get it done right at a shop. i would take a video of the exhaust but you'd probably just hear me yelling in pain.
