Stainless Works ZL-1 exhaust installed!
 
Sounds amazing with high-flow cats and stock manifolds but I have long tubes ready to install.

The drivers side pair of tips is a little off though. The inside tip is hanging a little lower than it should and it can't be moved :pout:It's kind of pissing me off.

I emailed SW and they basically told me that the hanger was probably bent in shipping (the shipping box was perfect) that I need to take it off and re-bend the hangers.

That sucks your tips are a little off. I concur with you, sounds amazing. I got this catback, SW headers, and Night Fury Cam installed today...unreal.

This isn't the first time I've read that the tips don't line up. :facepalm: I should have mine in a few weeks, I'm curious to see how they fit.

This is the second time he has posted a thread about it. It is the only case I have seen so far though.

Yep, garbage fit. I'm probably gonna sell it and the brand new Stainless Works headers I just bought and go with a better brand.

If the cat-back has a crappy fit, I bet the headers are trash.

Can we at least get a video w/ sound first...:D

Quite sure Corsa would be a great option.

Why not just have a exhaust shop straighten the tips out? It would only set you back a few bucks. I know you "shouldn't" have to go through that route but let's be realistic here, they are aftermarket parts so it should be expected. The most expensive headers and exhaust have fitment problems from to time as well. Hell, even oem parts don't come perfect, we all know this.

Yeah I'm probably gonna take it down and spend the money to have it fixed the right way. The dude (at the shop) that initially installed the whole system is a skilled mechanic and he gave up on it. He adjusted the hangers and screwed with fitment for quite a while but wasn't pleased with it either.

I've been modifying and working on cars for many many years and I know parts don't fit perfectly but the fitment usually gets better as the price goes up. Not in this case I guess.

This actually scares me with the SW system. I'm considering going with a full Kooks system now...
