TSP ORY, Different approach
So after reading the other thread about the Texas speed ORY problems about it not fitting and he had to take it to a muffler shop blah blah blah. I thought I'd show you my solution. I too had problems with it which required modification. this is what I did.
The new LT and Ory setup pushed back about 3" from the stock location so we cut a section out of the Mid pipe on the catback, angled it to be a slip fit on the next peice in the catback setup and re-welded it back. You cant see the angle on the car so I think it's a succesful mod considering I don't have a tube bender. Luckily my uncle is a proffesional welder and he used stainless beads on it since it's stainless steel
This cost me nothing extra but I got lucky. So if you decide to go with texas speed longtubes and their ORY, be ready to modify.

I didn't touch the ory. It fit like poop but bottom line in fit. It doesn't bang or nothin but the merge was further cat so the peice I cut was part of my stainless catback. Sorry to misinform you, it's complicated to explain but at the end of the day I got it to work without taking it to a muffler shop

did your TSP ORY come as a box of pieces? has anyone had to cut any of the pieces? mine seems like it will fit real nice if i take and inch of a couple pieces..

No everything comes In pieces. They fit together nice but final fitting is different

I ended up cutting about 4 inches off total. they fit so tight the only way to get them apart is with a saw. lol

I had to cut 2 or 3 in off the catback where it meets the y pipe. I removed the factory strap that is on the pipe to tighten it down and just butted the two pipes together without swedging the catback any at all. just left about 1in overlap on each pipe ( catback and y pipe ) and bolted them together. I used a sawzall to cut the catback and it worked good for me. Bottom Line.... Your gonna have to cut something, period!!!
