    Question Elite to GSI exhaust mod

    Can anybody tell me if I want to exit my exhausts out through the rear valence aka the 3.2 GSI's, is this achieved by simply purchasing the GSI valence and clipping this to my existing Elite bumper or is the whole rear bumper going to need to be changed? Over to the experts.......

    As yours is the Elite, you'll need the SRi type bumper to let you clip on the SRi/GSi valance.

    I think that Duncan hit the nail on the head there, i have an Elite model, and i know that if i wanted to add twin exhaust i'd have to change the bumper, like the GSI SRI one.

    Wouldn't a hole saw be a good way to get clean access holes made?

    Would probably need some sort of heat sheilding added as well.

    Thanks for that fellows, just to add to the thread, I visited TG Silencers my local exhaust fabricator on Tuesday, he rekons he could make custom boxes with a choice of tail pipe (I chose a chrome oval approx 6"x4") to exit under the existing Elite valence without modification. What are your thoughts to this idea?
