Well I just installed my catback and Hi flow Cat all seemed but when I put the car in drive and at idle there's a horrid rattle beneath me, I also noticed a weird smell after driving 15minutes when I got out of the car

I looked beneath...kinda low, and saw what looks like smoke between where the cat and the resonator connect, I also noticed on my Solo kit the sensor adapter puts the sensor butt( where the wires come out) right against the undercarriage. Could this pose a problem?

Please help, I don't want to take it to an exhaust shop to find it was something easily fixable, has anyone else run into any of these issues?

It's probably just misaligned. Loosen all the connections and get it set right, then tighten everything up, making sure everything stays in position.
As for the smell...

Check the thread for the pic of your combo. I just grabbed the first set of pics.

It should look like the pics.

Got her fixed, thanks guys, I also noticed the clamps aren't a perfect seal so I had it welded on each end of the mid pipe.
