Its interesting, as that is "almost" exactly what I was thinking of doing with my OEM pipes.
I think the top pipe is a bit too long...aesthetically speaking.
I was going to remove the pipes and have a buddy cut the top pipe at the proper angle using a floor-mounted metal band saw. I have not done it yet. It would involve a full de-baffle of the top pipe as the cut would be in front of the outermost baffle cap. I would plan to also fully de-baffle the lower pipe at this point as well, to attempt to balance/match the flow characteristics of both pipes as best as possible.
For my eye, the top pipe should be cut around 1/2 (or maybe 2/3) of the way between where it is stock, and where the lower pipe ends. I'm thinking the end of the tip of the top pipe should be about where the backside of the rear rim ends, to leave a bit of a staggered look. If I do this, that will be my starting point.
I will post pictures if I do this.
