I did my install yesterday, here's a few pics. I'm going to have to have a shop do a little tweaking on it to try and get it up higher in car, most of the issues are due to the drivers side Ebay header outlet. It seems to point upward toward the floor, making it difficult to get the y-pipe over the support directly behind it. One thing I may do is install a three bolt header flange where the Y pipe connects to the cat back. That will make it much easier to remove down the road.

just get rid of the wave black metal strip you don't need it and you will almost never get it to fit with a y. i had to take it off my car as well.

I was able to leave mine on both of our cars. Even one being a convertable with an extra support piece was left on.
It does take some fiddling.
I also agree I prefer the 3 bolt flanges more. Easy to take apart later down the road. That slip fit stuff is such a pain.
I even made a 3 bolt flange at the muffler where the I-pipe attaches. Extremely easy to drop the muffler with tailpipes still attached in about 2 minutes.

I don't see how you can keep the tunnel brace, the torque arm is resting on the collector in the last picture and the brace was no where near going to fit.
