It doesn't work that way. You can't just lengthen the tips as the hangers for the rear muffler are in the same relative location further rearward on the sedan relative to the hatch. You need to lengthen the pipes ahead of and around the rear suspension as the cars share the same wheelbase.

The rear of the hatch is 6.9" shorter than the sedan.

That'd make it easier then just one pipe to fix vs the tips

You could probably spot weld some new hangar arms to match up with the sedan hangars and then do the tip modification? Could be more work than its worth though because you'll have some weird hangar arms haha.

I did something similar in my last car and had a nasty exhaust rattle on the axle if I had more than 2 people in the car..

i've had one of these in my watch list. glad to see the pics - i had hoped there was another muffler hiding under there.

i wonder if adding in a resonator to the front straight pipe would calm it down enough. it might be a good starting point to have a shop modify.
