In this case, I haven't installed mine yet.
What car is it?

I explained the procedure 15 post below.
Remove cat, remove manifolds, cut cat. pipes, place RD headers (with the tube flanged), place cat. See if it fits, install everything back on and weld the tubes.

Easy job with a lift, or hard of the body with jack stands.

Your shop wants to get a lot of money from you...

I can help you if you are in MI or Ontario, else you will have to fly me in....

'89 535i

i just got a call from my shop and they said it does not fit without heavy modification to the rear....according to my shop, any feedback??


it was explained to me that it was too long, like 2 feet too long, they said they could cut it but that then the rear muffler would not fit without sheetmetal modification...

is there maybe the possiblity of them sending me the wrong one???

i ordered the center resonator and rear muffler. its a 1990 525i, the one that should have now ihave an exhaust that that wont fit(according to the shop which is a sponsor for the TEXAS bmwcca...)
