    Ahh, makes sense. I've got SLP tuned length headers and Y-pipe with cats. Those headers actually hang quite low.

    I use the Texas Speed ORY. It is sectional and I was able to tweak the pipe to get it to hang close to the body. One it's in place and take for a test run or two I then go back and weld the sections together so that it doesn't change the alignment over time. I also did 3" Mandrel Bend SS tubing all the way back to the tips. The Magnaflow muffler gives it a nice mean sound and when I want to go loud or being at the track the QTD E-cutout is fun to open.

    I bet it sounds mean with the cutout open. I might have to get one of those. Does it throw a code when you use it or is there a way to trick the system ? Or are the sensors upstream from that ? I haven't looked.

    No codes. Only time you have a code or O2 issue is if the cutout's are too close to the o2 sensors.
