It's all good. I'll stop by the exhaust shop either tomorrow or next week. BTW, when you did your SES conversion, did you just buy the bumper and bolt it up? Nothing really different compared to mounting the SE bumper?

You will need the fog light brackets also to install the SES bumper.

The exhaust shop said it would be $100-$140 to run 2.5" pipe straight back from the manifold, but it will be aluminized. The guy I talked to said they would have to cut the exhaust back a few inches from the collector and step it up to 2.5" diameter pipe. Would that really hurt the flow running a smaller diameter for a few inches?

Then I remembered that FSWerks makes a race pipe to convert the stealth exhaust to the race exhaust. This is made out of stainless, though. Would it be a problem to weld the two together?
