So I'm trying to figure out if I have a leak somewhere near my connection pipes (Pace Setter LTs with no cats). Does this look right? This is my driver's side. My passenger is more "aligned" if that makes any sense. Could this be the point of my leak? Should this looked more "aligned"? Instead of the lower portion being "tighter" than the top?

Yeah that's what I figured... Is this something I can do myself with the car jacked up? Didn't do the original install so I have no clue what I'm doing. Thanks all.

Yeah, the Pacesetter setup isn't the best, but if you get everything lined up and tightened properly it should be virtually leak free. Some just have it welded to eliminate the possibility.

Its crooked for sure, but that doesn't necessarily mean its leaking. If there's a leak you should see a trail of carbon.

Put the car on jack stands, start the car and feel around for air escaping at the flanges. Also check the merge of the headers as imperfections in the manufacturing can lead to leaks there.
