exhaust pipe not round, muffle delete won't fit.

so far the very simple task of cutting out a muffler and clamping on a new pipe has turned into a pain In the @$$. First I bought a brand new sawzall with an assortment of blades that were smaller than the 3.5" pipe. Moron I know. Now that its finally cut off, I spent an hour filing the 1/8th inch burr that was left aalll the way around the pipe. Now that I've done all that. I come to realize that the pipe is no longer perfectly round and the muffler delete won't slide on. Tips? Tools? Solutions? Might just drop the tailpipe and leave it dumped under the bed for now haha

How out of round is it? I wouldnt think it would get that smushed, and youd still be able to force it on

cut slits on the muffler or the exhaust pipe then you can expand or contract the exhaust pipe or muffler to beat it in

Got her in. Ended up going back to sears and getting a nice new matching angle grinder to go with my sawzall. Used that for the burrs and a c clamp to get it back to circle like shape. Funny how a 60$ part costs you $200 in tools

I'm surprised I'm actually pretty happy with it. I wanted a 5" straight but when I ordered my 6637 through riffraff the muffler delete was in related items. Bought it on a whim for $60. Idle sounds the same to all my friends, I noticed I slight difference in turbo noise. Around town is perfect, good tone, not obnoxious but definitely loud enough to make me happy. No highway drone either. Oh, and tunnels are awesome
