Default X-Pipe with TKO-600

Greetings gents. I ordered a pypes stainless steel 2 1/2 for my 73. The kit includes a X-Pipe which appears to go directly behind the X-over. I have the stock x-member in place which the kit anticipates, but they probably DON'T anticipate theTKO.

Anybody have a similar setup that could provide and pics and/or pointers? I'm expecting to have to do a couple of bends around the tranny?

Thanks

-pappy

By X-over, do you mean the gearbox crossmember? If so, I doubt it will be a problem, that's where my x pipe is too, and I have a tko600.

Just a side note,,,, I know you didn't ask, but, My personal experience with Pypes was not good,,, returned every set ,, poor fit up and quality issues,, ( not only on Vettes,) Hope you have better success, ,,

Here is what I have.
I have a 496 with a TKO600 behind it.
I had a custom 2.5" system built for it.
