That's exactly what the shop did. The guy cut off the pipe behind the canister, and then added an extension in between. He also heated up the hangers and bent them to give me additional clearance. I had him set the tip flush to the lip. Once my car heats up, the tip extends about an inch past the lip.

i like your grill. i wanted one in black but i got a good deal on mine sooo i'm fine with it lol. you definately need some black heads and fogs though!

and as an update for my car... i had my exhaust extended finally and got some LED's for the Map and Dome lights (still need trunk, ash tray, glove box, license plate and door sill light things lol). i'm STILL waiting on my tails (i'm patient) and i'm taking my rims off friday. they will be up for sale after i get them off.

if i get my rims off this weekend i think i'm finally going to lower my car a little more. stock 11 spokes FTW lol

well i've been saying i would be lowering my car more. and i would also be getting my exhaust extended. well i got my exhaust done about a month ago. i've also decided to get new rims and i needed to take my Works off so i can put them up for sale so i took them off yesterday and lowered my car more! got around to washing my car today... realized i forgot my camera at the dorm... so here are some wonderful iphone pics!








EDIT: yes i know.. i need to more my horns. i'll get to it eventually.

Look'n good buddy. I like the drop, and your paint should be safe from your exhaust tip. I need to drop my car more, but I'm barely getting past some places on my daily commute as it is.
