    rerouted this a bit, tucked it up . At some point later I plan to run steel lines.

    Now looking at exhaust, considering Pypes crossover , says minimum center collector to cnter collector is 21 inches. I measured mine at 20 inches, so waiting to hear back to see if I can cut these down to fit 20 inches

    Something about those rubber lines. Mine got real real moldy after a few month, as if the car was out at sea. No joke.

    How does it look from the side, is it low or up tight enough not to scrape ? Nice looking setup and looked like a fairly easy install.

    Ill take a picture from the side when I get everything welded up, I wanted to work on it yesterday but had a covid birthday party that took all day....dang kids taking me away from car, lol.

    It looks to tuck up really well. there is a pretty good amount of adjustment in it, the only thing I had to do, was cut 2 inches off the straight 2 front pieces to get it to fit my headers. Other than that, pretty easy installation, I really like the band clamps, but I may end up welding everything.

    Drilled hole 7/8 inch for FiTech O2 sensor, welded bung. Welded mufflers, looking back I should have just used some 1 inch clamps on mufflers instead of welding, oh well, if I change my mind I can just cut.
