Default Are these exhaust tips too big?

They are a bit bigger than I expected but they will fit. what the best way to get them welded on and fit in there and NOT stick out of the bumper...I want them flush mounted but they are like 2" too long? any ideas and thoughts as far as installing these tips?














In the last picture you can see they are a bit too long? what should I do.

The exhaust shop can probably bend the pipe leaving the muffler back more to accomidate the tips.

Second solution is to mail me the tips and I will send you polished riviera tips that wont be to long .

Love the tips. I looked at those. Same problem That I had with mine. I had to give in and get the muffler shop to custom bend me a pipe to fit them right.

you are gonna have to have the exhaust shop either take out a section of the pre-muffler pipe, or remake this entire piece

Have your shop flip your muffler 180, so the outlets are behind the inlet pipe. I've seen this done on an SE or two at club meets.

Off to the exhaust shop you go.

They'll take a little off the tip and weld to the pipe. Remember..it'* ok if they stick out a little..the bumper curves in at the bottom.

do you guys think they are too big? (big as in too big of outputs)

Also is it possible to WELD the hanger onto the tip?
