    So I had the problem of my intercooler pipe hitting my dump pipe like dead center.

    I just replaced my beaten up greddy intercooler with a vsrf one. I've had a STM dump for years..

    Well now it was in the way.

    So I grabbed some 304 SS from a muffler shop. Then a good friend helped me cut it on his chop saw ( use a band saw.. ) in 15° pie cuts. Then I spent like 4 hours deburring pie cuts ....

    I bought some high temp metal tape awhile back( I knew I was gonna have to do this) and mocked up the pie cuts to redirect the o2 dump.

    I was definitely scared cutting my STM dump because I'd never done that before haha.
    But I was able to get a new route figure out. After some trial and error. Re taping and adjusting and figuring it out.

    Brought it to a friend (RK Titanium) and he welded it up.

    Its fits!

    Then I scuffed and painted with 2000° paint cured it and wrapped it with DEI Titanium wrap.

    The reason I chose the angle of exit from under the car is I've fabricated a BeatRush Evo undertray to fit and I dont want to modify it anymore.
