Default CR Side pipes do not align

I was test fitting my side pipes and I discovered the Driver's side rear mount extends about 1" too far for the mount hole to align.

Has anyone else had this issue?

That sucks! Can you relocate the mounting bracket on the pipe or create an offset bracket to connect?? To answer your question though...no I did not have the misalignment. BB FE.

I ran into the same issue but on my passenger side.
I have not resolved it yet, I was thinking of elongating the hole and using a large washer/ rubber pad to make up the distance or cutting the bracket and welding where it would line up.

P.S. I sent a PM.

It's a bit of surgery but you can cut off the elbow that is in front of the couplings, then cut out the pipe that is inside of the couplings just don't cut the coupling and buy yourself a length of pipe and cut it to the size you need to meet up a new elbow with your p-trap. If you use a reamer that will remove the left over pipe from inside of your coupling.

It turns out that I had switched the the motor mounts to the wrong sides when I replaced the original with convertible mounts to lower the mounts. Slightly lifted the motor, switched them side to side and the pipes lined up! But now I have added problem of the supercharger snout hits the hood!

Will keep everyone advised. Have been busy with the house
