Just a thought but it may be those pipes are sized with an engine on a stand without accounting for the transmission. Or maybe sized with a bell housing for a manual transmission. I have no idea of the differences between the manual bell housing and the E40D case. If any.

I'm just thinking that I got a bum set of pipes Pete. IDK I bet Bill can answer that question about bell housings.

I'd grind for room and not think twice about it Glenn. Like Mike said, 1/8 inch or so of clearance.

Just a caution. If you're going to use a grinding wheel be careful. Aluminum can load the wheel and cause pieces of the wheel to fly off. If you have beez wax you can cost the wheel with it to stop it from being loaded.

If Bill's idea doesn't work, I'll grind it. I just hope my grinder will fit.

I've never heard of that Mike, seems like the heat would melt it off. Safety glasses time!!

I still get a kick out of your signature, grandpa package, LOL That cute boy of yours will be chased by all the girls and you will be a grandpa before you know it.

stainlessstroker95 has a good reputation on FTE.stainlessstroker95 has a good reputation on FTE.
After a little more of an inspection I notice the top part of the bellow rubs on my trans. If it was cut out and moved down a half inch it would fine but it's running on the top "rib".

Edit: It's kinda hard to get a kindle up there for a close up

Thanks Gabe, maybe my up pipes aren't bad, its just a bad design like Bill says. The bottom part of my bellows is the problem area.

Thanks for the suggestion Bill, it worked!! In this picture you can't tell because there is a flange or something in the way at the bottom but its clear of the trans now. I don't think I need to grind any thing. Actually, looking at my picture again, what you see at the bottom is in the background. Once I pulled it over with the top bolt and tightened it down, I then tightened the bottom bolt but not as tight. While I tightened down the bottom bolt I had a pry bar stuck in there just in case it wanted to move.

Glenn I have a 4" scar on the right side of my belly where a disk blew and sliced me open.
I was grinding on an aluminum bike trailer.

The aluminum clogs up the disk on over heats it.

I know you were giving me good advice Mike. I have seen them get clogged and hot. Ouch, that got your attention.

Just guessing Nate because it such a hard place to see, I would say just 1/8". I think its good to go, I think the pry bar was helpful also, it looked like it wanted to go back as I was tightening down the lower bolt.

Gabe, I would try that before yours rubs thru. I only took a few minutes.
