I think I have the second pic working.

I did end up removing those screws that face rearward, but they don't seem to affect this triangular piece. I'm stumped!

Sounds like something I need to look into in the future. The car already has plenty of power for my purposes, but increasing the mileage AND getting more power? I like the sound of that. :thumbup:

The tips need to be updated for our cars as I don't think they flow well with the design of the coupe. I like that the cans are black instead of silver/chrome like a lot of the other exhausts.
