    whats wrong

    ok so i put my kooks lts on with ory and a ported throttle body on. so the exhaust is rattling and i put some rubber hosing underneath to stop it until my bumpstop comes in. my problem is the car seems to loose power if i floor it. i also took out the egr and air systems. waiting to get my bumpstop installed before getting it tuned. ive heard the exhaust rattling causes the knock sensors to go off. would that still be true with the hosing in there? please help.

    What codes are you throwing besides the Air codes? Could be the throttle body causing your issues. the banging could set off the knock sensors. The bump stop should cure it, although personaly it didnt for me. I had to cut a piece of pipe out and weld in a new section angled down a bit.

    you can stop that Y from hitting the floorboard by adjusting the over the axle pipe. That angle coming over the axle is how I cured mine.
    As far as it losing power that's tough to tell without a log and without being there to see it. It could be a ton of things.

    its more then likely knock and your getting timing pulled. Get the codes, also get a tune if you havent yet for LT's.
