Stack problem vent

Well I am about ready to squeeze grapes here! I am 3/4s done with my stack install and was fitting the stacks into the bed kit, well come to find out they (Grand Rock) left some nasty ruff edges around the bottom of both and the wont fit. I have been filing at the but the metal is very hard and is eating my files and grinding discs. My poor wife has been dodging f-bombs for the past 3 hours! well back to it!

Were these rough edges on the y-pipe and elbow, or on the stacks them selves? If they were on the y-pipe, you can fix that with a file of some sort (but you never should've gotten those like that I appologize for that) if it were the stacks, the rough edge on the chrome is just over plating. Some times that happens. Are you installing 5" or 6" stacks? If you have any further problems, please call me at 1-800-321-3674 so we can get this issue worked out for you.

Not sure where you guys got your kits from but if you are having that big of a problem you might want to call the Vendor they came from.

Or just give Josh (post above this) a call at GR and discuss it with him as he is a Great guy and he will take good care of you.

I have found that no matter who's products you buy there will always be some items that have some small flaw or issue. But if it is a good Company they will take care of the issue no problems.

Grand Rock is one of those companys that will take care of the issue and you would be hard pressed to find anyone much better than Josh to deal with the issue.

Good Luck

What would be so hard as to eat files and grinding discs?

Ok, I got them done the other night and have been busy enjoying them. It was overplating on the stack itself, but I finally got them to fit! They sound AWESOME!!!! Look great and went in easy except for having to spend and hour or so grinding them. I am still very pleased with the kit and would do it again in a heartbeat!
