Default My exhaust dilemma...

I have a hideous black widow rear bumper which I intend to get rid of this upcoming week. I am doing an HKS carbon-ti catback setup with the universal muffler, and stainless steel pre-bent piping. I was wondering tomorrow when they do this exhaust, they're gonna put together these pieces so that they go out the back of the car, how do I know when i trade this black widow bumper for the OEM bumper with the lip next week that it will fit in place with the exhaust?

what im thinkin is... can anyone with a stock bumper (tell me if you have a lip) measure from the keyhole in the trunk, to the highest point of the muffler tip and tell me how much that is... so that I can have them place it at that height?

Why don't you just wait to get the exhaust done when you have the OEM rear bumper? I know it may be a little late to cancel, but at least then you won't have any problems with exhaust fitment.

I had a blk widow rear bumper and set up my exhaust to that bumper, so when i got my oem bumper back on i had to do some cutting to make it fit.

Its not going to fit especially if you have a lip back there.

What you could do is have them put the exhaust measured to where the bottom of the kit scoops. Do you know which piece im talking about? It kind of looks like its a lip attached to the bumper, well on top of that then you should be good.
