Exhaust Leak 95 SC

Now that i have at least temporarily plugged most of the exhaust leaks, I can hear it leaking under the hood area while under load. (not really while at idle). and when I can hear it leak the CEL comes on. However if I drive Exactly 64 MPH, I cant hear the leak and the CEL goes off Can I install a flux Capacitor? Or maybe remove the hood strap someone to the top of the engine and drive around having them listen to see if its coming from the EGR setup lol

CEL intermittent like that is usually an EGR related issue - it only comes on during load conditions at a certain cruising speed ( if your sound goes away during this I would suspect this may be somewhere near your issue source ) .. so many vacuum lines including the lines / solenoid that control the EGR itself. It would be best to smoke test the system - I have even found exhaust leaks at the gaskets between the head / manifolds.
