Haven't been on here in a while. I caved in on the custom exhaust and went ahead and got the OBX exhaust. Yes, I did get the headers as well. However since the exhaust is meant for the Tiburon chassis it was too short to reach the elbow pipe from under the car. This problem scratched my brain a lot but k managed to get around it, I used piece of sheet metal to connect the pipes together and bounded it by house clamps. Now it holds and good but my other issue occurred. It has no hanger for the resonator pipe and it would just hang down like a sloth. I ended up using a sturdy but thin piece of metal and drilled it under the body so it will hold. Although solved I messed some thing up with the house clamp. I torqued it too much and it ended up breaking, exhaust still went to the muffler (little leak though) but the axleback wouldn't stop bouncing around my rear sway bar. I bought more house clamps and had placed them on the sheet to hold the exhaust and connect it. Now I have no problems with it but I may still use some other alternative to have the exhaust connected and held.

Sharing my experience and how I fixed it I will put some links to the pics and a video of just installed and after break in period.

whats a house clamp?

why not just use clamps and hangers made for exhausts from auto store?
and they also sell pipes and repair kits and stuff...

whatever works tho homie.

Oh no, I'm so sorry... the correct answer is The Moops.

The packaging clearly stated '100'. I'm short ONE luft balloon.

Is this just a band-aid solution or is it "IT"? If it's more of the former, have an exhaust shop fabricate a more permanent setup to replace the temporary one. Band-aid solutions have a tendency to break-down when you least expect it and does that sooner than you think. Do the right things then do things right..

In a sense it is, but in the wrap I have a small pipe to keep the exhaust flowing normally, I have it to hold down the piece before the axleback to the elbow pipe so it wouldn't constantly hit my sway bar. I'm still thinking of other better ways though to do so.
