Cant install muffler?

I bought a 2.5" inlet and outlet muffler off kijiji, never been used it has an offset on one end and the other end it is in the middle. I've brought it to two different shops an they say they can't install it. Is this true? It looks like this.

They just said at both shops, no matter how the put it they can't instal it. It won't fit. Which to me doesn't make sense because I don't understand how it couldn't fit..

Yes indeed, I've never heard of that problem. I mean technically any muffler can be installed, just needs tweaking either the in or out set. But obviously that would cost more.

either the two shops you went to are too lazy to install them or they can't figure out a simple install. either way i'd find a 3rd shop..take a print out of my pic if needed

None of the shops are able and have the stuff to install the muffler. And the one shop that does wouldn't do it.

If an exhaust shop can't install a muffler, then they aren't an exhaust shop

Would the 2.5 make a big difference from 2.25?

Also I found a 2005-2009 mustang gt x pipe for sale on kijiji.
I was wondering if that would work to convert into a dual exhaust for a 96 v6.

I am not sure the difference it made. All I know is that it sounds great!

It sounds ten times better than my previous setup.
O/r h pipe flowmaster super 40's and 2.25" pipe.
