Exclamation exhaust install problems

Threw on a Helix Flex up-piipe and helix downpipe on my 02 wagon ( otherwise stock) yesterday afternoon. There was a lot of corrosion and I did most of the work alone so I was feeling pretty good about getting it on

Went to start it up and it was idling like shit. :eek: I got a code reader from AutoZone and i am reading Cylinder Misfires on all 4 cylinders.

I tries to die out and is not drivable once in gear.

I am going to check to make sure none of the wiring to the EGT or O2 sensors is messed up.

Anyone have any suggestions or experienced anything similar.

Surprisingly I did not get any codes for EGT or O2 sensors.

Never heard of anything like that before, try reseting your ECU. Also, you won't get any other codes for a few hundred miles.

Sounds like a leak. Check to make sure that all your intercooler hoses are connected well.
