You will need exhaust packing, a saw, a drill and a rivet gun. Drill the rivets, cut the can and the core, repack, reassemble and drill new holes for the rivets, then rivet it back together.

I did the Two Brothers undertail (two carbon cans) because they stuck out past the tail by about four inches on my brother from another mother's 636. Simple. They were extremely loud before, they are LOUD AS HELL now though.

Remember, take your time, be sure they are cut straight and that the core (aka baffle) is the correct length, then do this: :vroom:

Enjoy!

Drill the rivets, take it apart. Shorten the perforated cylinder inside, shorten the sleeve. Repack with new packing, assemble.

You'll want to cut the front part off of your ca, so you don't have to re-do the logo. I believe that the back is the easiest part to cut off the perforated cylinder, just make sure you cut it the same amount.

My recollection is that the end of the cylinder is a tiny bit smaller, so you may have to do a little cutting/bending to make it a little smaller to get it to go back together.
