Here are some tips that will help you if you are going to install it yourself. I am not a professional or a novis and it took me about 2 1/2 hours.

With Dynomax muffler:

2 1/4 end goes towards the front of the car. There is only one 2 1/4 clamp and that goes on the front end of the muffler and will not fit any other pipes.
Unless you have someone to hold the exhaust up, you will need something to hold up the exhausts while you tighten all of the clamps.
Put the rubber hanger on the passenger side tail pipe first before you hang it on the car.

** If pipes don't go together, try a little sanding to make sure no metal flakes are in the way of putting the pipes together. It is possible you may need a pipe expander, around 20 - 25 bucks at a auto parts store or you can get a shop to expand them a little.
A dry bar of soap works as a good lubricant

Also, taking this advise it is fairly easy. Just make sure if you don't know what to do about raising the car ask around and find someone who does. If you back onto ramps with a MTX put your tranny in reverse and put your emergancy brake on. If you have an auto put it in park. Put bricks in front of the front tires if you have them. If I had used ramps I think I would have had more room to work with, but I wanted to have a floor jack and jack stands for a future restoration project. :biggrin:

Also, she has gone from a ***** purrrrrr to a throaty cat growllll. Getting lots of looks and pull up and back downs. I don't even hear the KKM any more but I think it gives it a deeper sound...
