    Im going to pull it and straighten it out, I ordered a 2" to 2 1/5” lap joint clamp and will high temp silicone the joint before clamping it.
    Probably unnecessary but this would always bug me.

    Yeah unfortunately that's what U bolt clamps do. Those pipes are crimped together now, you'll have a hell of a time getting those apart without cutting anything. It might leak but otherwise it should be fine, most H pipes have a smaller diameter crossover anyway.

    Got the tune file today. No leaks and sounds pretty good to me wide open with no mufflers so i think ill be happy with the steeda branded stingers which by the way are 4 weeks out untill shipment ... Oh well, im not driving it for a few months.

    On to the next project... Suspension.

    Thanks everyone for your help and suggestions!
