Can somebody help me with a leaking exhaust issue?
I have a 2002 GTX 4-Tec. I just replaced the J-Pipe because the flexible bellows had gone causing an exhaust leak.
I have since replaced the J-Pipe but there seems to be a leak coming from between the manifold and J-Pipe, from under the exhaust clamp.
I have followed the specifications when installing the J-Pipe. Tighten the clamp, then the muffler, no more than 1mm gap between the J-Pipe and manifold etc etc.
The only uncertainty is the 9nm of torque on the exhaust clamp as I can't get a torque wrench to fit it. I have made it a fairly tight (using two fingers) with a spanner.
Before I go tightening the clamp any further, can someone tell me if there is a trick I need to consider? I'm worrying about over tightening the clamp as I've heard they snap.

Check your motor mounts. If they are broken, you could break your new J pipe.
