There are two springs that hold the muffler to the midpipe. They are very strong and are a bit of a struggle to install. As Savage mentioned one is a bit longer than the other. When I installed mine I got them in the wrong places and ended up with one too short. I switched them around and though a struggle got them hooked up. I use vice grips carefully clamped to the J of the hook to pull the spring onto the loop.
As to mods on the engines, both got the same except for the '03 getting a Lexx. The '11 still has the stock muffler. Here is the list of engine mods: Uni filter, airbox desnorkled, EM KLX needle kit, carb slide drilled, Exhaust cam advanced one tooth. The '03 will pick the front wheel off the ground by rolling on the throttle in first gear. The '11 isn't even close. The major difference is the muffler. I am interested to see if the Lexx wakes the '11 up similar to the'03.
