what didn't bolt up specifically? flex pipe issue? hangers in the wrong spot?

i need to go to 2" + for my build plans and i'm weighing pricing a cheap bolt up against a custom cat back.

the catback came in three parts. the first two pipes coming off the flex/cat looked as if they wouldnt bolt up but actually ended up fitting. it was the final section that i had to have refitted. was a bummer but am HIGHLY pleased with it's sound. i don't say too much about the performance because, well, i can't really feel any since it's my only performance mod as of right now. doesn't have a ricer sounds. it's very deep and throaty and not loud at all.

mmm hmmm

so was it a bend that was off, a hanger location, distance to bumper?

i ask because i would consider using this pipe as well but if a bends off i'm going to have to have work done any ways... hanger location thats a spot weld i'm ok with that.. distance to bumper i'm going to chop that tip off any ways.

it was an issue w it's bends. they chopped the flanges to weld the last two sections together. made an all new final section with better bends and angles. chopped the tip and welded it to the new pipe. cost me an additional $160 but it's muuuuuch quieter then the magnaflow. i would have spent the extra on the magnaflow but i was impatient and kinda happy i didn't. the real test for this exhaust is gonna be this winter with the salt n stuff. cleveland cops are pricks when it comes to loud exhausts so that's why im happy with my purchase.

don't go by what my experience was though. a few people got this same exhaust and it bolted right up. mine just so happen to need adjusting. it sucks but hey, isn't this why we modifiers do what we do?

i have this exhaust system. i personally think it is not loud enough but it does have a good sound to it. it doesnt sound ricey at all i like it. im thinking about deleting the resonator so it will be louder. mine just doesnt have the the burnt tip anymore. but just to let you know, mine was kind of a pain in the ass to put on. they dont fit 100% so you will have to have someone help youpush and pull so it lines up better. the tip in kinda off a little bit.

You know, even the "Higher Quality" pieces can be a little off. I have FSWerks Stealth, Headers, Downpipe... and i can hear and smell an exhaust leak. When i took off my straight pipe to put the resonator on, i could see where exhaust was leaking.. So im going to eventually have them chop the flanges and weld. Just an FYI... Sounds AMAZINGLY good though...
