My pypes were fairly straight forward to fit. I little sloppy welds but for the price no complaints.

Yea I'm l wasn't expecting perfect finish on the welds or anything but was hoping they bolt right up but this is to a Magnaflow cat back which is probably why. I'm going to bring the car to local exhaust shop that does all my work see what they can do

Did you tighten the header at the head already?

Loosen the bolts at the head then get the catback flange bolts started. Then tighten everything.

There were report on the earlier revision of the bolt holes not lining up correctly. Did you have to elongate any if the bolt holes to get them to line up with the engine holes?

Tune went well, no record number but 344rwhp 355ftlbs drives amazing

Didn't line up with the magnaflow cat back but a quick trip to exhaust shop fixed that

344 to the ground is very respectable.
