This is what happens...lol
The muffler is for an F body and you have an H body. Most guys angle the muffler to get the pipe to the inlet. Top or bottom is based upon how it fits best and the piping looks best.

Dunno who wrote that up, I would never recommend making a luxury car louder. I'm more about the sleeper effect. Quiet, fast and surprising.

If you looking at the muffler as a square. The bottom left is your inlet and your two top holes are your outlets. so if you are looking down at your car from the rear you hook it up as so.
