My GIBSON Exhaust RXP Install
Here how I installed my Gibson/B.M. Muffler on the RXP:
This is the alignment problem with the RXP, due to the exhaust thru-hull tip angle:
Started off with a 3" long x 2.75" diameter Hump hose coupler, off ebay @ $11:
I installed the J-pipe and all its hoses, but kept the J-Pipe/Exhaust Mani collar a little loose so the Jpipe could twist.
Then I cut the "bowl"/ "lip" of the J-pipe to an angle that I liked:
Test Fit: Slide the Gibson onto the thru-hull, again not tightening it all the way.
Once the angle is cut on the Jpipe to my satisfaction, I used the waterbox/Jpipe coupler to connect the two:
Hooked up and tightened all the hoses and what not and done.
Just FYI, I did not cut any length off the tail end of the muffler, the only cutting that was done is on the J-pipe(mandatory) and the angle off the Gibson bowl.

Very nice Jay! I like how you trimmed the Gibson so that the pipe would sit inside of it.

looks like the elbow on the muffler is just a standard 90, instead of a custom bend to mate correctly to the J pipe angle????
i fyou shortened the exit pipe of the muffler it might give you a little wiggle room to line up the exit hose??
just thoughts on how to make gibsons fit better.

So I don't really see how shortening the muffler would help out any. . . mine fit great length wise.

shorter, would allow a longer silicone rubber or regular exhaust hose, that would give more room for adjustment. especially with a hump hose that can angle if necessary.
