    Really hard to tell from your video. Maybe shoot while the hood is up and get someone else to rev it.

    I replaced mine before it failed, because I had a primary catalytic converter die. I had to replace the left bank header and got a new gasket to throw in there too. I did the right bank at the same time as well.

    It's not a fun job. My lovely wife assisted from above, while I wrangled the new header in place.
