I just received the right side GT take off I got off the bay. The size is right etc. But...there is an extra hanger on the original V6 muffler on the pipe end before the mid pipe attachment point. This hanger is not on the GT take off I received. I also don't see it photos of any other after market or FRP muffler. Can I ignore it? Or should I manufacture the hanger and add it? Will it make a damn or just keep things in line that would normally be okay any way?

Thanks!

you can discard that 3rd hanger and install your muffler. the v6 also has the damper pc the gt doesnt. you will like the difference.

Yeah, just disregard the third hangar. You'll be just fine with it and you'll love the sound. I think it's more "sporty" than any of the other mufflers on the market.

Awesome!

Well I got the take off, on. Several things of note; sounds way better under acceleration, at idel and a bonus its really nice and quiet at speed so I can hear the radio without the droan of the stock one. Strang thing though it really sticks out a good ways beyond the opening in the cover. I think I can cut it off with my sawsall with a metal blade.

Thanks to all for the suggestions and help!

i dont think you`ll have any luck with the saw. thats stainless steel, you would have to use a cutoff wheel. i thought about taking a inch off mine, but its not worth the hassle really.( and ive got a cutoff saw and air grinder) it dont look bad.....

I used a sawzall for my first muffler and a chop saw on my second one. Just make sure you have a very good hold on it before you start cutting or have a friend hold it for you while you cut. Just be careful.

yes i did. used the die grinder with a rasp bit and a little sanding drum for the bumper.
ya, on the tip sticking out, its really not bad, i thought about taping it off and using a cutoff wheel, but it hasnt bother me yet. if you tape it off, you can use a compas( divider with a pencil) to transfer the angle line it has, or create your own. i kinda like the angle with the flat cut on top. another idea if you wanted a straight cut would be a pipe cutter. it might roll the edge in a little, which might look good, or clean it up with a grinder. a sawzall is gonna bounce around, and the blade will walk if you try to cut 2 sides at once. check your car out from standing back a ways.......

one thing i find is that the more i look at the rear bumper, i love the way the v6 bumper looks.

its smaller than the gt and gives it a sexy rake look with out a loss of handling.
