Is there an issue with putting spacers on the ‘W’ brace?

Hi everybody, I’m new to the forum and bought my 350z in January, after looking around for a while I got one I liked and set about tackling the rust issues (weren’t obvious at sale). Now that’s done I’ve started to make some mild modifications. I’ve fitted some Torqen High flow cats and a Stillen true dual cat back system.

The Stillen system is making contact with the W brace causing vibration in the cab, the system is fitted correctly and tight with no leaks (at the minute). 

My question is will it cause any issues if I put spacers on the W brace to give me a bit of clearance, maybe 10mm? 


I’ve seen that others on here have used that method. Just looking for noob advice.

Hi Azurez33, Yeah Torqen have been fantastic, really looked after me when I had an issue with one of the cats. It’s the Stillen exhaust that’s contacting. I think the quick fix will be a couple 10mm Spacers, save me trying to manipulate the exhaust and causing a leak when everything seems good otherwise.
