Fabspeed bypass fit issues?

I can't find the thread now, but about a week ago a poster listed that one of the fabspeed pipes was too long and he had to do some cutting. He also mentioned one pipe contacted a bolt or frame piece...can't remember exactly. He had a lot of nice pictures. Basically, it sounded like this was definately not an easy, bolt up install and there are flaws in the design. Is this an issue with all of them or just an isolated case? I need feedback from the guys with these pipes.

How much would something like that cost Dj? Do you know of anybody with a boxster that has done this? I have considered it, but there would be a few more hoops to jump through. I need to find a decent shop that can do this right. I need to take off my cats and have them take some measurements which will result in some down time. I need to hope and pray they don't screw up and their pipes fit. I thought there were some guys on here with these pipes? I just need some feedback on the fabspeed fit issues.
