Help....

I recently purchased a mbrp cat back and a set of long tube headers and off road pipes. The catback all slips together and clamps. Im having a problem figuring out why were the cat back meets the off road pipes one dont slip over the other. They are both same size 2.5" outter diameter. Do they need welded together or am I missing a piece.

Do you have the stock clamps? Thats is likely what you need. It is for 2 pipes that butt together. ....Thats my guess without seeing it.

Probably designed like that so people can buy cat back and keep stock headers/manifolds or keep stock exhaust and get headers.

I thought maybe since they butt together it was ment for a band clamp i just wasnt sure how that would seal and not leak without one of the 2 sliding inside the other
