I installed the JETEX 2.5" stainless exhaust this weekend. It sounds pretty decent...nice sound at idle, gets
louder up to 2500 rpm, and then quiets down.

The problem is, the way the rear muffler is balanced, the right exhaust tip hangs down lower than the other
one, and it looks kind of stupid. I'm curious if any other JETEX owners had the same issue?

I've only seen one Jetex in person and it's on a coworker's VR6 Corrado.  It
sticks out kinda far and yes, it's tilted like you describe.  Looks kinda
goofy in my opinion.

But when my stock exhaust rusts out (if ever), I'll probably go with the
Jetex as I hear it isn't too noisy (been down that road before with my 5.0
Mustang, loud exhausts ain't good for daily drivers).

I had the same problem with my Brospeed exhaust.  Get two big pry bars and
stick them up in the tips and adjust as neccesary.  It's easier with the
pipes hot.

I have a JETEX 2.5" stainless steel exhaust on my '95 GTI VR6, and it's not
visibly crooked.  I just went out to the garage to double-check, and when I
measure between the tips and the bumper, the right side is *slightly* lower
than the left--but not enough to notice if you're looking from afar.

I suspect you should be able to tweak it's position enough to make it look
straight.  Good luck!
