How to make pipes hi-mount?

Was curious what I had to mod, buy, or build to convert my standard pipes to high mounts. Is it possible? I have regular cf Jardines.

If other companies high mount mid pipes will fit the Jardines, you're in business. You would have to take some measurements of the muffler inlet and contact Sato, Two Brothers, etc.. to see if theirs will mate up to it!

OK, so I call a few places and Two Bros. still has the midpipes in stock. Granted the newer and current stuff uses the VALE system. The older stuff has the spring which hold the canisters on the mids. AND they have the same measurement inlet. Price is $225 for both, OUCH!!!
