Of any setup with longtube headers and y-pipe to a Loudmouth catback.
I think I may get a new catback because mine got softer with my longtubes. I think I may go with the LM to replace the flowmaster that came with the car. The only problem is that the y-pipe (pacesetter LT's and Y) travels a good way down the driveshaft tunnel and I want to make sure that the LM will still fit and have enough room for the modular design. I don't want to have to hack it all up once I get it and pay for it.
So, I would like to see some under-car pics of a longtube full exhaust layout that has a loudmouth catback. Thanks.

An exhaust shop can always modify the Y pipe if they need to so the I pipe in the Loudmouth fits onto the Y.

That's true, but I don't want to pay a shop to do it again. I had to have them do it for my original catback, but they pissed me off and welded everything together instead of using the clamps. They welded the cat to the collector, cat to Y, and then Y to catback. But I guess I could find another shop to do it again.

Yepp just tell them what you want them too do and too be on the safe side bring the clamps with you.

With that other shop, I did give them the box of clamps. I gave them the old y-pipe with the cat still on it (said they wouldn't work on a car unless it had a cat on it...long story), new y-pipe to be bolted up, and clamps for everything to stay together. I get it back, not thinking much of it. Take it to my mechanic for a seperate issue, and they put it on their lift so I can look at something, and BAM, they point out to me that everything was welded into place. For the seperate issue, they said I would have to loosen one of the headers, and then I noticed that everything was welded into place. Still pissed about it...
