Next will be the install - anybody know IF it REALLY is a direct fit or should I expect some customizing?

I'm still waiting to get mine back from having them coated (Swain Tech). They charged my card late last week so hopefully they will arrive in the next few days. Sounds like you got a quick turnaround on the coating, who did you have coat yours?

I think you and I are the only ones with a set of these and neither of us has attempted install yet. They should be direct fit but that remains to be proven. Hopefully the fit of these is more exact than that of their cat back exhaust (which required a minor tweak of one of the hangars IIRC)....

Sounds like you may have yours installed before I do at this point.
