First, we carefully inspected the stock exhaust system configuration.
Second, we laid out the new system and made sure everything was there.
A "mock" installation helps ensure everything will fit nicely later.

We left the mounting points loose until final adjustments were made.
We use an exhaust sealing compound between all joints to ensure a leak-free installation.
We found the mufflers to slide on easily to the straight pipe section.
We now had everything in place and were ready to start tightening down mounting points.
The muffler hangers lined up perfectly.
