Cutting stock exhaust for MPE

Does anyone have a photo of where the stock exhaust and the MPE comes together (where the clamp goes)?

I'm wondering because I've previously cut the exhaust for the dinan resonator delete and want to make sure I can still go with the MPE. The dinan resonator delete install has you cut the exhaust right before the resonator on the cat side.

I thought the MPE was a slip-on. No cutting involved.

The instructions say:

Quote:
Cut the exhaust system at the centre silencer service separation point (centrepunch point)
using suitable tools and then remove the tailpipe

I am concerned with cutting too as my MPE is coming in Jan. Hope someone post a picture from underneath, either before or after install.

My car was lifted for DP installation the other day and I didn't notice a cutting point anywhere near the resonator, though I could be wrong.

I always thought MPE was completely bolt on and then found out it needed to be cut.

Part of the reasons I discarded MPE and went with my current setup.
