Sup yall. I just posted a pic of my split muffler. When I was under there I realized every clamp I just put on is leaking. I used clamps they supplied in the kit. They're all lap joint clamps and each on leaks. Any ideas? I tried moving them and tightening them again. I just cant seem to figure this out. Maybe need a new style clamp. Pictures to follow shortly

I have the stainless steel band clamps on 3" pipe that don't leak. I cut 4 slots in the outer pipe that allows it to compress when the band tightens. I use a pipe expander to make the pipe fit properly and take care when assembled. The vband are superior IMO and will change over to them in the future.
