Aftermarket hearder? Cutting muffler?

Hey I was just wondering if anyone out there has shortened up a carbon fiber exhaust muffler. I have the two bros slip on and I don't like how it sticks out so far. Also is there a aftermarket header that you can purchase to mount up to this?

from a cf faq

How do I cut it?
For the thinner pieces (.020 and smaller), you can actually just use a good pair of scissors. Thicker material you may be able to use a tin-snips, but the optimal method is to use a band saw or scroll saw. Fast-cutting, as with a jigsaw or circular saw tends to make a lot of dust, and can leave a less-smooth cut, so slow-cutting is typically better. When using a saw, it is a good idea to protect the glossy finish from scratches, with some masking or similar tape. Finish up the edges with a 100 grit sandpaper to take the rough spots off, then detail with 400 grit. If you're really fancy, you can use a Waterjet or Laser-cutting service. (Although laser-cutting carbon fiber tends to really stink as the material burns!)

Just remember your exhaust is going to be louder now, take that into consideration

No melting... just need to clean the light every now and then because of the carbon deposits exiting.
