I just got the Borla Muffler in!

Quick question: Do you happen to know what tool the body shop used to cut your bumper? I'm finding it pretty difficult to find body shops willing to cut my bumper. I'm thinking I might have to do it myself, or simply not cut the bumper at all and just have the two pipes exit below the bumper :(

They use a hand held band saw. I had never seen one before. It was about the size of a dremel tool.

So are you going to just change out the rear at first?

You could do that but my mod was to improve the rear look of the car also. The factory rear is just too plain.

Got around to taking a look under the car....The pipe is 2" to the rear muffler, then 2.375" out. I feel a little silly putting dual 2.5" exit pipes on the car ))) One can probably do a single outlet Borla setup similar to this for less then 1/2 the price.... Borla turbo muffler will be about half the price, only one bumper cutout, one exhaust tip and one set of exit pipe welds is required....talking to myself here )

You think there might be a company that makes the stock exhaust alot smaller or with a lower profile?

piranha971 , and BooBerry

Both of you are correct in the tube sizing. I and others want the duals.

A lot of dual sets up on other factory cars with small motors use a transverse muffler.

I am absolutely sure you could just run a different muffler or just cut the present tip off and weld on a better one.

I love the look of the dual exhaust set up. It looks very clean, but my issue is noise. I would love to find a smaller stock sounding muffler for smog purpose when it needs to be done and dont want it to sound like a riced out honda.
