    Ok, so I hacked off my old exhaust because there was no way to really unbolt it. Then I get my new DC sports exhaust all hung up and start bolting it together, and realize it doesn't fit... barely. The part that turns shorts after the resonator turns about 1 1/2 - 2" too soon. If I push and pull and yank and prod at it for a while, I managed to get the whole thing bolted together, but there is an exhaust leak at the cat which I can't figure out, and the pipes definitely rub the bottom part of my body. So the question finally is... is there any kind of exhaust spacer I could run to extend this part? I was basically going to get some longer bolts, and put a whole bunch of exhaust flanges alternated with gaskets until it filled the gap, but I can't find those either.

    SHORT VERSION:
    Does anyone know of a company that makes exhaust spacers?

    And hey, does anyone know the diameter of the DC sports exhaust off the top of their head, it looks to me like 2 1/2", and searching online just brings me to shitty store after shitty store... nothing on the DC Sports website.

    You could also pick up a flex pipe, I don't know where they sell them, but I have seen a few people use them to fix none fitting exhaust.
