Yes after you cut and weld it so its angeled different, otherwise you can't make right turns, ceramic black coating would look even better!!!!!!!

Why would I need to cut and turn the pipe? It looks like it would be fine as is.

It's not fine, a couple guys on here have the pipe and it's not streetable, bad v-r, bproulxvrod are the two I think of off the bat, they had to cut it and turn or angle it different, something so they could make right hand turns. That's what I know, so take it for what it's worth.

it won't work on the street and I couldn't even get the dealer to sell me one. It sounded like there may be some sort of a propriatary issue with parts from the destroyer. ?

Even after I cut it the front head pipe still scrapes the ground. Ask the CT/MA guys who I went on a ride with today..........right hand turns suck :barf:
