    Exhaust Leak at flange 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis

    Thanks for the reply. Thinking about cutting out the two flanges and replacing with the straight section as you mentioned. So cutting away the two flanges and the gasket should not pose a problem? What about doing away with the counter weight on the flange? Would hat cause a problem? Thank you

    Exhaust Leak at flange 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis

    Yes after the cat. No problem passing emissions the way it is. Would like to try weldless patch, but figure it is too close to heat from cat to stay viable for long.

    Thanks for all the replies and the clarification. Going to attempt this when it stops raining, although I don't have a impact gun up here, just my ratchet and breaker bar.

    engine swap 99 gmc sonoma 4.3

    Hi, thanks for the reply...I plan on having the donor vehicle side by side, just not sure if the depth of things to change would require extensive swapping of wiring, (I.e. Harness throughout the interior fusebox, and dash wiring- which is something I'd rather not get involved with)

    As far as swapping out the modules is concerned, does anybody know as to what extent the wiring harness has to be removed? In one whole piece? (Unplug old and plug in New) ? Or cutting and splicing a lot? (Keep in mind I'd be swapping motor and transmission) Thank you in advance
