X pipe installation problems

After reading a post in this forum I decided to put on an x pipe from Pacifica. Cheap, easy to install except for: The stock studs have a shoulder on them that will not allow you to tighten up enough to avoid leaks. After searching the forum in this venue and others I find that I am not the first to discover this. So I take out the stockers with vice grips, easy really, imagine doing this on a 10 year old fox car, and simply use a bolt equivalent since I could not find studs. I tried to explain this to Dan of Pacifica, a MAC offspring, but he basically called me a liar and I then said, "Read the Mustang bulletin boards". I do not have clue about any power gains but it sounds mean as hell. I used my old MIL eliminators, had to cut the locating tabs off of the O2 sensors. I should also mention that the forward drivers side O2 sensor plug is a bitch to unlock, there is not alot of slack in the factory harness.
Man, you just got to love the aftermarket suppliers, don't you.

Regarding the studs.I removed mine and turned down the shoulder and reused them. Worked fine....Also used thick type flat washer,under nut for a better seal.
make it fit the best you can and then go to a muffler shop and pay the $50 to have him fix it.
Bullitt #4001 : Bassani is a supplier you WOULD love. Heres a X pipe that fits perfect,no hassels or problems. Stainless is shiny case you dont keep the shiny side up.Ive had the misfit-something always gone wrong with several off road pipes. Spent the long dollar and its the best exhaust fitting exhaust mod Ive ever done. Im all for a bargan but heres a winner for your money.
