    Steve, it's unbelievably difficult to do, almost impossible. I'll do ya a favor, and take them ugly orange pipes off your hands.
    Joking, of course. You're gonna love the sound guy. Go for it....Jim

    Dont do an x pipe it kills the sound of the MT's,..just a simple 3.5 to 2.5 collector is all you need then it will just be a matter of trimming your current headpipes

    I took one to a local exhaust shop here....Tony's. Wouldn't try a national chain store.
    Anyway, this guy has been around a long time and knows what he's doing.

    I had him shorten my head pipes, weld on the collectors, and alter my tailpipes to exit thru the N-25 bumper. Charged me $225.00.
    He didn't even use the exhaust hanger at the bumper. The tip was perfectly centered in the holes and doesn't rattle or even move. This was probably 4 years ago...
