Hey all, very amateur shade tree mechanic here. My exhaust set up used to be all stock except the RS Q (longer tips appearance pack model) and install was easy enough. I later installed the RS catted header and midpipe. It took a full 2 days but all went well. I recently noticed that the tips on the Q were very crooked. They weren't uneven on the horizontal plane, just the left tip stuck out a good 1-2 inches and the right tip was recessed 1-2 inches. After thinking it through I decided it was because I installed the two part midpipe too short, pulling the Q back. After fighting with it for an hour (up on ramps) I was right about the midpipe. It is still is uneven about 1/4-1/2 inch though. I doubt anyone will notice it, but I do and that is all that counts
So my question is, what are your tips/tricks to making your exhaust perfectly symmetrical on both sides besdies the ol' trial an error method?
