Thanks Ken. I had an aircraft exhaust fabricator (extremely anal, expensive and good!) handle the repair. Turns out someone at GHL may have had a hangover- they missed about 1" of weld on a seam so it was a manufacturing defect. He checked for slag then pressure tested both sides. I installed today and am back in business! Blew the doors off a Vette steadily pulling 0.9 bar the whole time.
