Decided to give dual exhaust a shot on my SE. I liked the factory look of the Bosal mufflers off of SLE'* and SSEi'* so I wanted to go that route. Finally located a complete exhaust system off a 2000 SSEi wreck with only 58K miles (thanks GTPMORAD!)
Cut off the main pipe and the duals bolted right up. I didn't care for the way the tips looked on an SE without the cutouts in the rear fascia so I hacked them off. Just my personal taste. I may add some on to extend them to the bumper but for now I am quite happy with the subtle look. Sound is exactly the same but maybe a little quieter.
Initially, the right muffler was hanging too high so I put a spacer in between the hangar and the frame. After taking the car on a 15 mile trip however, the hangers have settled and I believe I can take out the spacer. If you look closely, you can tell the right is hanging a little too low in the last pic.
Really fun and easy project if anybody wants to go duals on their SE.
So long single exhaust. I will not miss you.
Spacer on right hanger.
I cut three slits on each end of the coupler with a Dremel so it would snug down as tight as possible.
Weep holes at work!
Right'* hanging a little low. Removing the spacer should even things out perfectly.
