    I would take some measurements. The tape won't lie, but your eyes might. You'll know for sure then. Hopefully, the tail panel or something else is not tweaked.

    tail panel is fine i love the way it looks its just the length of my passenger side pipe being a bit shorter if it adds something to the torque curve ill live with it but if the pipe is just longer for no reason i think i gotta have it cut to be exact to match the pasenger side

    Don't worry about that small of length difference in that tail pipe area. Bends have more of an effect then length, within reason of course.

    I see options...
    1. Get another tailpipe from Pypes and have it cut the same way as the driver's side. (And remount the tip.)
    2. Shorten the driver's side the same amount.
    3. Don't sweat it. (Accept it as a unique quirk to your car.)​

    Stuff like that bothers me too. But sometimes i'll leave it a while and seems like not that big a deal. Or you can rent a pipe stretcher from autozone:brightide.

    Cut the drivers side to fit or put some chrome tail pipe bolt on on. No big deal. It will not affect power in any noticeable way no matter what you do to the end unless you crimp it shut.
