If the ceramic coating has resulted in too tight of a fit for the pipes into the collector and/or the collector into the muffler, an automotive muffler shop can quickly and easily expand each female opening very slightly without any visible indication.

Good Fortune! :)

Thanks for the advise Patton, I will try installing the pips one by one, the ceramic coating did not interfere with the mounting. no need for a muffler shop. just a little time and patience should do.

Got some more wiring done, and tested. Had a bit of trouble in the beginning, looking at the factory wire harness diagram trying to copy it. Some wires got hot, luckily the M-Unit no damage, back to the drawing board. The confusion was the fact I was looking at the factory wire harness diagram. Can't say enough about the M-Unit, so simple. Looked at the M-Unit wire diagram and in minute s moved some wires around and the everything worked headlight, front signals, and dash all work properly together.
