OK.. Here is what I did.

Took a ROAR Legal RD Logic Pipe One Piece and I cut the header off so that it was starting to go up. I went to Home Depot and bought a 3/8inch 90 Elbow and then some 3/8ID Flexible pipe to extend coming out of the elbow to the original Rear Exhaust Header....

Going to a parking lot right now to try it.

Is this the fitting that you guys used for your fuel tank mods or do I need one with a longer thread?

Thanks!

That fitting will work. Theres a nut on those threads that you don't need, the threads are longer than they look. Same as the GS fittings I use, probably more expensive though (it does say Trinity on it).
