Like (I'll try to explain it the best I can), if you line it up with the block on one side the other side was about 1/4"-1/2" off. And when I was finally able to line both sides up there was NO way it was mating with the stock cat section (that was still bolted on to the car). I went on RS25 and was told to tighten the cat section first (loosely) and do the sides ever so slightly... sure enough it worked but took a little while. I remember a lot of sweat went in to that install, but boy was it worth the sound. Power-smower, the boxer sound is fantastic.
