your talking about where the cat back and mid pipes bolt up? did you replace the cats separate or did you hack it apart? like I said, you will snap bolts.

300 isn't bad for factory stock part, in my earlier post I forgot about rock auto. summit carries the performance versions of our mid pipes.

be careful with the bolts connecting the mids to the exhaust manifolds. you most certainty will snap them if you haven't already tried to remove them
