Why did you have to install it upside down - It should just drop in from the top. Sounds like the wrong tank. The only issue with some tanks is the stock ones have a slanted side on the passenger side to allow for clearance of the stock muffler. The after markets are typcially straight up and down with no slant. You can just get a smaller diameter muffler for 30$ and use the aftermarket without any problems.
