Helix Downpipe question

Today I installed a helix down pipe and upipe on my car. The rest of the exhaust will be in this week. Anyways, the down pipe is rattling terribly. It seems to be resting against the cross member, or whatever it is, right by the clip where you bolt it on. Has anybody else had this problem, and if so, what did you do.

You could try to loosen the bolt in the bracket and push it away from the frame and tighten it down while your pushing on it

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

I pried it down with a pry bar to get it where it is, it doesn't seem to want to move any further.

i had the same thing happen to me when i put my invidia on. i took the cross brace off(very easy, 6 bolts) and took it to a grinding machine to take the 1/4 inch lip off the brace. when you do it just make sure you mark the cross brace where it need to be grinded. now i don't have that problem anymore.

I was hoping I wouldnt have to do that, but I think it might be the only way. Thanks.

basicly make sure every thing is tight, fortunatly when i installed my helix up/dp combo i didnt hav that problem, what i would do loosen all the bolts realign everything and tighten it all back up
