Fucking hell, I've got an exhaust leak. I didn't even notice it when I was checking for leaks yesterday, but it's really obvious today and sounds like total ass.

It's at the flange betwen the cat and the new center section. I cleaned up both surfaces as well as I could and replaced the gasket with a new OEM Mazda one, but I still get a small leak around the bottom of the gasket. I tried tighteneing down the nuts, but didn't have any luck stopping the leak. I think I'm going to wait until tomorrow or thursday when it stops raining and just throw some RTV on it and hope that works. The only problem is the threads on one of the studs on the back of the cat are boogered up (not my me, AFAIK, since they were like that when I removed the nut, this is probably part of the reason I have a leak) and I don't know how many times I can get away with removing and reinstalling the nut on it before I really fuck it up. It's also a major pain just to get the nut on and off, even with generous quantities of penetrating oil (off) and molybdnum grease (on).

Ford had nothing to do with the Miata.

No parts were sourced from Ford, no design work was done by Ford, all the assembly work was done in Hiroshima, and it was in production BEFORE Ford had a controlling interest in Mazda. gg
