Default muffler measurement question

Ok guys, this may sound weird but............I need to know the distance from the outlet of an aftermarket muffler to the bumper of the car. I need to know becasue I have some 90 deg. stainless tips lined up that are 16 inchs long and I want to know if they would fit (as in not stick out to far, or not far enough)

While not having actual measurements..there should be plenty of space for them.

if they are too far out could you not just cut them shorter

Whoooooaa I think I get it.

You have tips...that are supposed to be clamped directly to the muffler and from that right angle they are only 16 inches long?

Ok, thanks. Thats what I needed to hear. They are allot of money to be too short. But I tried to take the easy way, I thought I could just get them and clamp them onto my 20 dollar ebay magnaflow.

Look around further..I think you'll find others that'll hook onto the exhaust pipe.
