    This was done by member Joe Tahoe - same pipe orientation. Note how the hanger rod tips turn down.

    I believe the hanger rod on MC's installation has been bent and modified. It does not look the same.

    Yup. Made obvious by the compressed hangers.

    Here's my system laid out before install - note the cat pipe hanger rod. Zoom in on the tips. Note the red caution warning on the instruction folder.

    wow this is really a mess. It is so easy to install my 6 yr old grand daughter helped me with it. MC you have some really bad luck. you could take a overnight trip and let me and you install the next one at my shop. I would be so pissed. This is one more reason I am glad I can do my own work. The only time any one touches our cars is for alighnment and NYS inspections and that is the same shop

    What size shoe you wear MC...I'll send you a pair to replace the one you broke off in him...

    That is a completely ridiculous they way they botched that install. I do the same as JoeTahoe and no one touches the car after some of the crap shops have pulled on me too. I just need a balance and no more tire installs either.

    MC, I don't want to rub salt in the wound, but please check the exhaust flex coupling just ahead of the cat. If that has been torqued out of line, it's entirely possible that it has sustained strains or damage.

    Lol, size 14 quad E.

    Trust me, if I had access to a lift, or at least solid level floor (my private way is uneven gravel) I would do nearly everything myself.

    You're on the way right now - best of luck. I hope the exhaust shop that ruined your system has to eat a Sawzall.

    Thanks guys. I made my points, he made an ass of himself with several stupid statements to the magistrate. She actually rolled her eyes at him a couple of times.

    I'll be getting a letter some time next week with the ruling. I believe he can appeal if he wants .

    Oh, one thing he keeps saying is that it's been installed for 4 months and it's "working" so it's fine. The magistrate gives him a smirk and says "Well my husband's a Cadillac man, I'm not so sure about that."

    Did you ask her honor whether her husband is a member of CF or not? If he is not, you could introduce CF to her!
