I purchased an entire Jaguar Heritage exhaust system and am having an awful time with the installation. At first the muffler tips were uneven up/down and side ways so I exchanged it , now the intermediates appear to be incorrectly bent causing the resonators to sit too low. After receiving a new set of intermediates …same problem. I believe the intermediates should be parallel to the IRS tie plate.
The muffler is parallel with the vehicle.
The photos show how the intermediates are not parallel with the IRS tie plate and how far the resonators are from the rubber mount (1.5’ to 2") while being supported in their highest position with a scissor jack.
I know, they are not clamped but it will not make a difference , I tried.
At this point I believe it must be me…
