I put a new axle back exhaust setup on my 08 mustang gt today. My question to you guys just to see if anybody else has done it is....did yall notice the little nipple on the mid pipe where the cat back clamps it was making my exhaust tip stick way out due to the fact the new mufflers didn't have a slot for the little rivet. So I busted out the ole grinder and ground them off to let the exhaust tip set in a lil further and it looks way better (to me anyways). So any of you fellas done this to?

So that's the reason why I see people with the pype bombs have their tips stick out so far from the bumper...
I love the sound of those, and I wanted to get them. If that nipple is all it is I am sold as soon as I get my GT/CS rear bumper painted and put on.
Mine really don't stick out all too far. You can get them up against the nipple and they look pretty good, I have it so the Pypes lettering is just barely sticking out on the top of the piping.
One word of advice, if you feel like it, buy some better clamps. One is fine, but the other one keeps lowering by about 1/2 an inch and I readjust it every so often. No one else notices it and calls me crazy but I do Otherwise I love them, they're a fantastic axle back!

I just used the stock clamps on mine. They are just held on by a little tac weld to the old exhaust pipe. Mac decided not to send me the clamps with my axle backs.

Adjustments are easily made by loosening the midpipe and axleback clamps and then sliding and twisting, both for centering in the cutout and for length. I know of very few instances where grinding has been absolutely necessary.

Just to clarify I just grinded the little nipple off the back of the mid pipe so the axle back would slide in easier and also further on the mid pipes....
