On a separate note, does my RH exhaust seem wonky?
Yes it does seem out of alignment , the passenger one too should be twisted up a touch , the boxes usually sit level across the two pipes , possibly previous owner had aftermarket boxes on & not got them adjusted properly when refitting the originals .
