    Rear Exhaust Install

    I am installing my Green Hulk waterbox and my rude tip. I have already installed the rude tip "that was a PITA" and now I am putting the waterbox in. How much space is between the tip and the waterbox. It looks like there will be a couple of inches. If there is a gap between the two, do you recommend splitting the difference with the waterbox coupler so is on the tip and the pipe coming out of the waterbox the same?

    It sounds the safest/best to split the difference between both. Someone that has done this will post.

    I dont believe you really have a choice how far back it goes. The J pipe connects to the engine, then to the waterbox, then it goes to the rear tip. The longer coupler goes to the rear so you will have a slight gap between the two, place the coupler center of the gap.

    I havent installed mine yet because it is on its way here, but just going by what I have seen.

    My question and you may be thinking the same thing is if you need cussion under the waterbox.

    These links may help you out.

    I just split the difference. There is about a 2in gap between the two. I was thinking if the shorty waterbox was too loud I would sell it and get a Gibson, but now I'm thinking I will only change it if it's going to cause permanent heating damage.... LOL I'm glad that's done, now just hope there isn't any leaks.

    congrats on the tip install. that is a PITA by no means on the RXT or GTX.
    Then you got to figure out how you are going to tighten up all the clamps in the back. I will say after a few nights and alot of sweating and cussing i finally got it. I was like you, hope there are no leaks.
    Did you use Pale Riders secret to how to install tip, it helps a butt load.

    Links above are fixed

    I fixed my previous post links, I realized they didnt work before.
    Luckily I have long hands so I just lay across the engine and stretch back into the compartment and do the work. However you can remove the OPAS block off and access the hose and clamps that way. Since I can reach I just rather leave my block off alone since they have a good seal.
