I can't believe I didn't do this along time ago.. But now I lost my end cap so just make sure u dont test ride it before riviting/screwing the end cap back on!

Could you explain how you exactly did that? i bought a 08 r6 about 3 weeks ago and the stock exhaust sucks......

Yes it will work I always thought it would be harder than what it is to do.. I just went out and put it in the vice wrapped tape around it where I wanted to cut it and cut it! Here are full directions though.. and here's a pic of mine also. I would recommend keeping maybe a inch or so more of your pipe than i did so it is easier to get the actual pipe out the end cap. also when u cut the pipe in half remember once u get it opened up to cut the middle pipe a little longer I did not do that..




To Shorten the Can:
Using a chop saw with a metal cutting blade
Drill out the rivets of the end cap and set that a side, measer 8 inches back and mark it
Go to the chop saw and get it all level, make sure you got some kind of eye protection cause sparks are all crazy and cool looking
Cut the pipe and if you cut far enough back you should have cut the end baffle out which is a series of pipes that direct the exhaust all over and weighs approx 7-10 lbs
Bend the inner pipe up that comes out of the middle baffle to line up more with the end cap
Slip the end cap on mark were to drill wholes
Drill them out and slip the cap back on set the rivets
Put pipe back on and enjoy






Here is what the inside will look like once cut in half!





I know that if somone would have shown me that I would have done it alot sooner! It shows How simple it is!
