I bought one from a guy who said it had to be modded to fit his, but he never got around to it.

Something with pipe routing that is a bugger on XI's. The pipes can be modded to fit but most go with the muffler only. The full blown "cat back" systems optimize the upper RPM HP curve where it's reported they often take away from low end torque. The mufflers just change the sound and make for little benefit. It's all about what you're looking to accomplish. Sound or high rev flow?

You can make it fit. Not a big job for an exhaust shop.
