what diffuser do i need for quad tipped exhaust?

Just bought a 2012 Camaro SS. It has this rectangular exhaust rear diffuser (see picture). I don't really like it.

Was it factory? or an aftermarket part?

Anyone know what I need to convert this to the quad tipped exhaust (like NPP)? I'm looking for a GM diffuser part number if anyone knows.

Thanks

1LE diffuser, part number 22815277,

Changin yours will be more difficult. your have the GFX package and it has slits in the bumper to retain it. You would need to remove the gfx diffuser ( or get a replacement bumper ) OR get tips that fit like the photo attached

So, will I HAVE to get a new bumper cover or can it be done with just the 22815277 diffuser?

Probably. The GM GFX requires slits to retain it.

I swapped for the ZL1 diffuser, don't know the part number but I am sure any dealership would know.

Stainless works have quad tips for the GM Factory Body Kit. I have them on mine.

Cheaper than buying a new bumper. The rear kit is mostly held on to the bumper by 3m tape but I did have to drill some brackets on the side to hold up the side pieces. So if you took it off and only replaced the rear lower panel you would have holes on the side.







old photo but you get the idea!
