1) I think on a truck.

Meaning they are not shaped or designed for a tight and low fit.

2) There are 3 positions on a triangle. Only three bolt holes.

Just cut a couple holes in the floor pan, and let those bad boys open up in the cabin right under your seat...

I'm betting then, they'll be LAAAOOOWWWD enough...

You are correct. I like the design because they really can't leak. And there is no obstruction at all as far as a center 'axle' in the opening.

They don't really go on a truck only but certainly not under a Vete or 5th Gen Camaro.

Gonna run by a muffler shop after I talk to the Marine Recruiters in the morning.

So the assembly should be able to rotate 120 deg if needed? (3 different positions)

Only if it's an equilateral triangle.

This is probably true but I dont think it's the knock sensor but more like the yaw sensor.....I know when I get on mine for a good bit that the stabilitrack, TC and all the lights come on...Turn the car off and wait 5 minutes and they are off.

Yup, as Chris said they won't fit.

And the shop varified what I found out yesterday. With Borla exhaust you aren't going to cut out and clamp in a Y diverter. Gonna have to be welded either way.

he said 80.00 and he'll do it but I have to have the butterfly type.

FTR, they could fit on one spot. But it would leave them visible by the mufflers. I decided that would look like shit and draw attention to any would be DOT Troopers who knew what they were.

In the below pic I'm holding it up where it would be welded on. I could turn it the other way but it would shoot straight at the tires about 4 inches away. Even with a few turnouts I didn't feel good about it.

Randy maybe you can sell them and get some DMH ones........80.00 for the install is a great price...They are not hard to wire up either........

Can't you send the cutouts back and get some QTP or DMH instead? Then you can have your guy weld them in behind the headers. $80 is CHEAP to have that done. I'd hate to tell you what I paid to have mine put in.
