    So I was able to remove everything and was expecting to just slide the mid-pipe on. No such luck, looks like the header that comes out of the back of the engine had some sort of wrap/gunk on it. Did everyone else have this? How did you remove it?

    are you referring to the round gaskets? you need to remove those, then fit the remus 2-1 pipe.

    I don't think it's really plastic, as i pick at it, it flakes away.

    here is what i'm talking about [​IMG]

    it is not plastic, it is metal with graphite impregnated in it. they were expensive, so i saved mine by hooking it with a pick and pulling it out.

    if not, stick a flat screwdriver in between it and the head pipe and pry it out.

    you pic you just posted, you already removed the right gasket, or is it stuck in the pipe you removed? just pry it off and you are good to go.

    Just want to make sure - you've got to learn somewhere, right?

    It will come off. I used a large flat-bladed screwdriver.
    Then the Remus Ti pipe slips on nicely. I think I used a short section of 2X4 to gently tape the pipe on.

    Love the Remus Ti 2-1.

    nope. slip fit. if there are any small leaks, it will quickly be filled with carbon. mine, as well as a buddies, is totally sealed.

    Thanks for the pictures.

    I'm going to mount it up in the AM.

    Do you recall if the Remus reuses the stock pipe hanger?

    I know if i just go look at the parts i can figure it out, just curious.

    stock hanger? ont he muffler, no. you use the carbon piece with the original bolt. the middle one uses the stock alum mount, you just use a diff bolt. it is very self explanitory.

    no, mine didnt come with instructions either... i am going to bed.
