Well the local muffler shop up the street was able to get it to work...they lifted the car and loosened the bolts and tweaked it while they tightened...it gave me some clearence and when i got home i loosened the tail pipe tip and tweaked it a bit more and tightened it down...seems to work. They also put some epoxy steel over the burn area and covered it up and if the pipe does slip back it wont melt that stuff, hard as steel... Sounds good and i do recomend it to anyone, just be patient and really tighten them down...i coulda really used that lift, wonder if the wife will let me get on? lol. On a side note there were too ricer kids up there waiting to get coffee cans put on there rides...they were actully pretty cool and were sincere with all of there questions. And the muffler shop didnt cost a thing, the manager is a '03 Mach 1 owner!!!
