: Couldn't find anything in the archives but I seem to remember reading that there was some trick to it. I will be installing two of them on a 2.8.
1. Align your chrome tips onto the tail pipe with the oval shape running horizontal.
2. Press them on by hand if you can to get them started. Otherwise follow step three to get them started.
3. Place block of wood (2X4) over the face of them and use a rubber mallet to tap them the rest of the way on. This will require some force. Any type of hammer will do just be sure and use the block of wood.
