I'm a dip.... and I'm angered that you hit one of us. >:D


are the pipes bent, or just pulled apart at the flange?

unless the pipes are bent.... you should be able to loosen the clamps and mounting bolts.... re-insert the pieces together, and just re-tighten everything.

Doesnt appear that any bending occurred.. however the bottom of the cat pipe is flattened and scraped pretty good. OK. Im gonna do it. wish me luck.

So theres a bushing or gasket or something between the downpipe and the cat pipe that is all mashed up. and.. do you know if i remove the cat bolts, is there a torque setting i should be attempting to reapply?

So the Cat on your S2R is f***ed up?

Sounds like Fate is smackin' you upside the head -- telling you to ditch the cat and get a full Arrow system. >:D [laugh]

Yeah i considered that.. then i peeled the sides of my wallet apart from eachother only to find nothin. To be honest.. id rather just have open pipes. Mmmmmmm... that would be sexy. But then i would catipult myself into a very early valve adjustment and my poor wallet would again cough up nothin.

if you need a cat, I have one. You'd have to pay for shipping from MA.

better thing would be to get a mid pipe.
