ok i installed borla headers on my 05 rs yesterday and its making alot of noise up front... kinda like an air leak noise and like a pinging noise too..
i was wondering if wraping them would help with some the noise from the headers but its louder than the exhaust....? anyone have this problem cause it does have the normal ticking of the engine but theres more than that now going on... nothing leaking that i could see its only when you go down the road.. idle its quite.... anyone have this problem?

I still have the problem too, I think it may be because of the flexing. The sound comes from near the cat, I think it's just because the metal is so thin and hollow, I think some heatwrap might solve it, do you guys have yours heatwrapped ?
