Silverline! lol. I don't think anyone could have put a guillotine clamp in a worst spot than where Silverline designed it! Right where the tranny lines/dipstick tube are. Plus it is a 3.5 inch (I know that is the optimum size for fitment) downpipe is about 1/4 inch smaller than the coupling on the next pipe. There is exhaust gas leaking from this union Compared to my Cummins this exhaust system leaves plenty to be desired. Anyone else have this problem?

I can't complain too much though since the rest of the fitment was good and the sound is perfect, not too loud, but still have the Harrier whistle.

That sucks to hear. I almost went with the Silverline kit on my EX. Luckily the Diamond Eye 4" turbo back fit perfectly with no issues at all.

I put the grand rock powerflow system on my truck and love i t. Fit was exceptional and the hardware was better than any other system out there.

That's odd, I have the silverline kit on my truck and it fit pretty good, no problems here.

My RAZR made me send this...

Get rid of that stupid clamp and replace it with a band clamp. Issue resolved. No more leaks.



Other end of the down pipe but these are all I use on my exhaust. Doesn't leak and doesn't crimp the pipes so it is easy to take apart.

I used one of those on my DP and should have used them on the rest of the juctions. Regardless of me using the band clamp like that, my DP still would not come out at all when I did my EGR, all I could get it to do is spin.

I've had mine in and out several times. It takes 2 people to get it apart but with those ubolt clamps forget it.
