Welcome to the club for one. Next exhuast questions, the left and right mufflers on all 00-03 SSEi'* are made by Bosal and the left and right mufflers on all 2000-2005 SLE'* are made by Bosal as well the same company. I have visited Bosal'* website I forget the exact adress but type Bosal in on google or yahoo and thats how I found it. It is very possible to do that. I have a photo of the split look and you would need to do in order to modify it. Let me post it here. Give me a couple a minutes.
Glad you with us once agian...
