hey as far as the down pipe goes it is all where youe engine sets from the factory if it set more forward it will slide right it if it set mor to the rear the its a PITA (pain in the azz) but what i had to do ant it feel in a little easier was take my pass side VC (valve cover) off

and as far as the bump goes its to send the thread back to the top ot the page so it can get seen first

oh and welcome to the org
