nvmtnlion's exhaust (ssdiesel)

Hey nvmtlion, we've both got the same exhaust system with the difference being that I haven't installed the kitty, yet. Looking at the down pipe, there's not enough length to splice in the cat without moving the 3-4" transition aft.

On your install, I remember you saying that you had to have the down pipe bent at a muffler shop. Did you splice into the downpipe above the final bend or below?

I've got this gutless kitty that's been sitting in my garage a while. I need to install it as I'm 3 months overdue on inspection. thanks -Joi

Hey Joi,

I had no problem putting the cat right after the downpipe, what I had to bend a little was the pipe after the cat where it goes over the cross member for the torsion bar keys.
