Irate Up-pipes Fitment Issue?

So I just picked these up a few weeks ago and got around to installing them this weekend. I had terrible fitment issues with the pedestal not lining up as well as the collector not sealing. Anyone else have any similar issues or am I flying solo here?

I did email Jake and got a 'we will look into it' response.

I had no issues with mine. I installed these on my truck and my brother in laws the same way with no issues. I did leave everything loose as I put it back together though. I put the pipes in then set the turbo in and just started the pedestal bolts. Then I started the bolts for the collector to the turbo housing with the gasket. Then went under the truck and lined up the manifolds and I snugged up those bolts. Not super tight but tight. Then I went back and tightened the pedestal then finally the collector bolts. Then I drove the truck a couple of heat and cool cycles and went back and tightened all the bolts again after everything settled in. After that no issues or leaks on either truck. I have been really happy with them.

terryknight that was exactly the same issue I was having. I wish I had checked like you had before installing. I think I'm going to end up in the same boat as you and use something different.

Thanks for the replies guys

That's why I bit the bullet and bought the international up-pipes I didn't want to have to fight with things. I hate having to do things twice or even worse get started on a job and find out something wont work and your stuck waiting for the right parts....

The International up-pipes would have been my first choice had they not been $800. I don't skimp for cheap parts at all but it was hard for me to justify spending that. Doing these once was enough for me. Twice is going to be a PITA.

Did you guys use an air hammer for the firewall or what was your method for creating space?

I know what you mean, I hear the Riffraff sets are sweet for half the price. If they were made/bent correctly you shouldn't have to clearance anything. Mine went in easier then my old ones came out...

I'd say your almost better off sending them back, Like Terry did, look into the Riffraff set maybe?
