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.

This could be the easiest solution.

forget what you know about backpressure

The red below hits the pipe just like the pic shows.

The Yellow the pipes curve too fast and so that part is not long enough. Even if I cut the 'Y' pipe a sleeve clamp won't have enough to bite to.

get QTP's

no

they will all leak after some point

I'll have to go back thru the timeline... you may have agreed with me from the beginning... I'll have to check the PM's I sent Randy about getting QTP's instead of Dougs
