I cut 2 pcs of 2" tube to fit into the holes and cut off the extra material by marking a line from the inside.
2 pcs of 2" elbows cut 45* , a joiner tube in the middle and a pair of flanges. The flanged end will bolt up to the extension pipes from the headers and the other end will fit into the cats.

I cut 2 pcs of 2-1/2" s/s tube about 6" long and tacked them together for drilling. Stainless is pretty tough so the trick is to drill a little and then spray water to cool everything down. Took about 5 minutes per hole, but it didn't burn out the hole saw.

Finished both sides. Just got to send them out for ceramic coating and finish the dual exhaust on the passenger side.

Test Fit.

Had to lift the engine,remove the motor mount and bracket to frame, then remove the clamshell bracket fron the engine to get it in. Then bolt all that stuff back up, lower the engine and bolt it up to check it. Lucky. It just clears everything except the valve cover which I can grind a little relief into.

Collector.

I made a template from the first collector I did as I had to grind each piece down quite a bit. With the new template shape, everything fit without grinding.
