Hi, is there any way of changing the oil filter WITHOUT taking the full Akrapovic completely off ? Radiator, header pipes ....

Was this a problem with the stock exhaust also ?

Don't know what the changes are between a 98 and 01 but I tried everything the POS needs about 4-5mm more to come out.

I am not going to bend the headers for fear of F-ing up the gaskets.

Anyone else know of a better option.

:(

Cheers,
G.
