    looks like the y is too far forward. should have moved it back so the flat part of that pipe is where it needs to be where the floor is low.

    I had similar problems with my tsp oryp but luckily I didnt have to beat it like that. I will tell ya that it took longer to get the y pipe on then it took to change motor mounts and bolt in the damn headers. Terrible fitment and hangs low, cant put the cross brace back on now. Not that I really need it anyways its just the principle of it all. If I had it to do over again Id probably go with true duals of some kind.

    My TSP ORY was the easiest thing about my LT install, cut 1" off one piece and 2" off another and it fit together so tight that the only way i will be able to get it out is with a sawsall. At my lowest point have 6" ground clearance too.

    This....I hate seeing speed bumps now. Used to not care, my wife even says I drive different when I'm in my T/A vs other cars. I still drive fast as hell, just I look for bumps and other crap more so now.

    Nope, I bought good stainless band clamps from summit for 7 bucks a piece. For when I have to change my clutch I didnt want to weld it. I cringed on the first couple speed bumps but didnt hit so now i dont worry. I dont know how I got lucky with the ORY but i had enough trouble with everything else it more than equaled out.
