Sorry, my bad, I misread your post. If you mean the manifolds, where it goes from the cylinder head to the catalyst with three pipes on each side then might be worth checking the engine mounts to see if one is sagging. I hadn't noticed one side being lower than the other on my car.

You're engine mounts are probably goosed. Rev the engine and see them swap positions.

So no new engine mounts then?

Bet they didn't address the knackered gearbox mount whilst the box was off either.

Engine mounts is a good call.

It would be what you're used to though. That doesn't make it right, so to speak.

Worth a check.
