    One pipe getting too hot - lower section

    97 challenger 1800 - twin 787's blew a hole in the couple from the lower section to the resonator. replaced it - but. that pipe is much hotter that the other motor.

    I believe the regulator on the resonator supplies water to the head pipe which dumps it into the tune pipe.

    IS there a test for the regulator or can I tighten the spring to increase flow?

    Thanks for any advise.

    Problem solved. The water regulator bellow was loose. Used zip ties to snug it up. Back to normal. Boat running great went on a 60 mile trip today in Minnesota. Love the 1800.
