Question Please help me figure out if this is an exhaust leak. MP3 file

Hi All,
I recently reinstalled my old stock exhaust. On the left side it is much louder than the right. I took off the header, changed the gasket, put a few new bolts in, tightened everything down and it still has this sound. I cannot pinpoint where it is coming from though.

I used a handheld digital recorder to get an up close recording of what I mean.
Is this the normal sound or do I have something amiss? I also felt around and couldn't detect any escaping gasses. The recording was doing just in front of the left rear tire, but from underneath.

Thanks!!

Chris

Cool Not sure

I'm not sure man. It really didn't sound like a leak exept for the thud in the background... But that may just be the air hitting the mic...sry

The thud was me moving the mic around... it is a wooden floored garage. Thanks for listening.
