Got the system the day before yesterday. Still waiting for the muffler (Raven, from Canada). I was "suprised to find that the system came in 2 parts, but it makes sense is you ever wanted to have the cats replaced. Overall, it looks to be a great replacement; the alignment, materials, and welds are all really well done. I have not hung it on the car as of yet. That will come next.

Here is a shot of the 2 parts from above, the cat section and the center pipes:

The 2 parts slip fit together, however it is not as tight as I would think it should be. I am going to try to find some clamps to tighten the joint up. The rear of the section is also a slip joint to the muffler, although Mario L. says it is a MUCH tighter fit with no need for clamps, but maybe a MIG weld bead with stainless wire. I'll let you know...
