SuperSprint "Race" Cans w/V-band install

I took advantage off ECS 20% off Supersprint deal and ordered these. I wanted to do v-bands on both the Supersprints and the factory cans so that they could be swapped out painlessly should I ever have the need. Also the expanded tubing and pinch bolt setup offends my delicate sensibilities....So 8 hours of unnecessary work in 7deg winter weather later and I am very pleased with the result. Good TIG welding and fabrication practice if nothing else.

Special thanks to Tim at Roberts Performance Group in Broomfield CO for tag teaming this install with me, he is a highly skilled fabricator, and builder. Available for hire.

Sorry the car is dirty its Colorado in the winter...

Question on the V bands: do you know what sizes you got and do the V band flanges butt up against the exhaust pipe to weld or do they slide over the tubing and then weld on? I was also thinking of doing this with my current "slide over and clamp" Dinan mufflers.

Looks like a very clean install. Good to know there is a fabricator to trust near me.

The flanges on both sides of the v-band assembly have a counter-bore and the exhaust tubing telescopes in a few [mm]s. I used these and the 2.5" size worked out perfectly, matched the Supersprint (with the expanded section removed) and the OE tubing diameter with minimal massaging.
