Ahhh yes -- thanks Kyle.

Unfortunately that would interfere with the exit radius material. Also, it would seem that would impart more movement (read: stress) to the exhaust stacks as it is fixed to the firewall instead of hanging off the engine...

Did you read the description on the web page? You still suspend the pipes from the engine or engine mount with flexible mounts. But you firmly mount the exhaust exits to hold the lateral spacing. The slip joints handle the relative movement.

Vetterman is pretty smart.

To make your exhaust fairing work, you'd just need to cut a couple of slots in it for the clamps.
