Edit: So I'm turning this into a progress thread for the 89. Hopefully, life doesn't get in the way of doing regular updates. Would like to know if anyone has run into something like this before: I usually run OEM style headers (shorties) but decided to go with a set of long tubes for one of my play projects. It's an 89 LX. The entire exhaust is MAX from headers to dumps. The mid-pipe is an X with no cats (with an air pump tube, go figure). Anyway, the long tubes went on well and appear to fit very well. They look like they surround the motor and thread the needle of other peripherals like they're supposed to. Here's the problem: The mid-pipe opening are approximately 14 inches apart while the collectors from the LTs are approximately 16.5 inches apart. This may be a usual problem that I'm not familiar with. If you've run into this before, let me know what you did to fix it. I'd considered spreading the openings in the mid-pipe but I think this would screw up the angles going into the collectors. Is this typical? Will bending and brute force solve the problem or is cutting/welding the answer? Thanks!
