what do you mean "clicks"? do you mean like something electronic, or is it just the sound of the car cooling down. All cars make clicking noises as they cool down and settle, it's a physical fact since the engine is like 800+ degrees all around and it's cooling to like 60-90degrees (outside temp). it's kinda like the clicking sounds you hear in a house when the materials settle at night.

There are more belts under your hood than just a timing belt. Actually, 200SX's did come with a timing chain. Most likely the belts you're seeing are your accesory belts (alternator, AC, etc.). I get a lot of squealing from my belts when the engine is cold (well...not a lot, but enough. and it's more like a kinda loud chirping). To fix that, you just need to adjust your belt tension. Either that or it's squeaking pullies, which can be oiled. Either way, next time you take it in for service, have them check the tension on the belts, or if you have the technical know-how, then you can check them yourself. Me, I don't have all the know-how or the time to do it myself (unfortunately).

The type of weld that they used, was it the type they had to heat the little metal piece and melt it on the pipe or did it auto feed from a wire (i'm no welder, tig mig fig...)? Well, I ask because different metals expand and contract at different rates from heat. If it's the exhaust pipe that's ticking you're probably hearing something very normal esp since you just had it welded.

Yeah, as was mentioned those are the accessory belts. Timing belts and chains are not visible anyway. There's a cover to protect them.

yep, thats pretty much how it works when u get a new exhaust, i hear noises, like me, i had custom 2.25 piping and i was fine, then i got a 2" drop and now my pipe hits the thing on the car(forget the name) everytime there is a bump or something(very annoying, sounds like the car is breaking down) back on subject the exhaust is getting used to your car right now, let it settle and the exhaust will also get a bit louder as it settles.

no, the 02 sensor is in your engine bay, and there is one Behind the catalic converter.. which i thought my resonator was a cat.. boy was i foolish... now i need to find a muffler shop to do it, they told me that extending the wire makes it less resistant, and it will still keep my check engine light on. but.. i doubt it.. they were just f****** lazy..

it's the type and quality of connection that they are going to do that will make the light go away........if they did airbag wiring before, they are pretty good........repairs inbetween components..
