mask off the area with blue tape


drill the rivots on the end cap. collect the fiberglass while wearing gloves.


pull off the CF cover. Mark the distance you want to cut, cut it less then desiring(CF cuts real easy)

measure the inner metal baffle and cut all you wanted shy of two inches.

cut and split one of the metal baffle sides and re rivot it to the other(preferably make the inner section as smooth a transision as possible since it can interupt flow. And use stainless steel snowmobile rivots)

Continue to fit and trim the Carbon Fiber as needed.

That cut Akro can looks good but, I'd be worried about the rivets on the front end working loose.
With the heat, pressure and vibration of the exhaust, those individual rivets may start to work loose after a while. That's why they put the metal strap under them, it helps distribute the load around.

Thanks for the info, I'll have to redo the rivets again but I'm happy with it

Wish I had a pic at work that showed mine.

Nice cut, and the rivets were through the metal cap, not just the carbon fiber.


Not to knock the dude that posted above, but personally I don't think that looks good. Not sure how it will hold up either.

You need to re-rivet that can with the metal band in place. The rivets will "work through" the CF if left without the metal band. I have cut way more exhausts than I care to remember.

Always use milspec rivets and you will not have issues with them loosening.
