Angry EXHAUST TIP HELP!

Alright boys, im back.
My RBP 6" exhaust tip came today. All day before it came i was thinking to myself "hmmm i wonder if i open the package and its too small and i need to order a seven inch..." then when i got home and opened it i was like DAYUM! the thing is HUGEEE. Its a 6" rolled edge 18 inches long with a 4" inlet. I love it.

Ok so anyways my first question is........should i cut the original tailpipe a little bit ??? because i slid the tip over right to where i would want it to be and the original 4" tailpipe was about 2 inches from the edge of the tip, and looked stupid. I just didnt know if most of yall cut your original tailpipe for the system to get the tip to have a good fit and look....

Second dilemma is that my tailpipe is sort of pointed towards the ground slightly, but when i put the Tip on it looks way worse, it looks like it is pointing the fumes about a foot or two away right to the ground. looks stupid. HOW SHOULD I TURN MY STOCK TAILPIPE INTO THE RIGHT POSITION??? I TRIED UNCLAMPING IT ONE DAY AND TWISTING IT BUT IT WOULDNT BUDGE.... I NEED HELP!

Bro,
just take it to the local muffler shop, slip the guy a couple 20's and have them do it. They do it all the time and you can give your input as to how you want it. If your pipe points down they can fix it.
Thats what I did.

ok thanks guys....
now anyone have any experience doing it themselves??
i have tried loosening the clamp holding the tailpipe to the crossover pipe and then twisting the tailpipe and hooking it higher onto the grommet hanger but it wouldnt budge, im thinking about heating it up and putting some oil in it and trying it again. i would rather not spend money but i might have too...

Exhaust clamps are made to crimp the exhaust making it almost impossibe to turn. I would reccommend getting a small sledge hammer and a piece of wood, loosen the clamps then hit the edge so it turns it to where ya want it. It doesn matter if you dent the end cause your cuttin it off anyway. If that doesnt work then youll have to cut slits in the exhaust where it slides over top of the other pipe, twist it then reclamp it, it should reseal the holes.
