hey all, i am hopefully getting a new exhaust system installed within the next couple weeks, and ive been doing some research into different tips, and i have decided i want this

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/3-TWIN-OUTLET-ST ... 255feeac0b

My question is, how do i go about getting it to fit within the bumper? will an exhaust shop make the gap for me? i dont want it sitting below the bumper.. i think that looks d**k.

Also, anyone have a ba/bf with a catback with straight thru pipes? id love a brand reccomendation

You'll probably have to cut your own, I did. And I'd be going for stano also. Mark and cut you hole out b4 they put the exhaust on and they can weld it to sit nice when they put the tip on.

there is no exhuast gap on the XT rear bumpers, the exhaust sits a tad below the bumper, i want it to sit in the bumper nice and almost flush.. so some cutting is required

easier than cutting your bar is change to an xr rear bottom skirt. bumper seperates into 2 pieces, change the bottom to an xr one with the stock cutout.
