REAR DIFFUSER EXHAUST......

im just curious if anyone knows how the stock exhaust works with the rear diffuser? i really want this, im just wondering if there are new tips it goes into or do the round stock tips just sit inside of the rectangular tips in the bumper?

also whatabout the gmpp exhaust? i wonder if it just sits inside of that hole or does it somehow conncet to the bumper?

I saw a picture (can't seem to find it right now) and it appears that the chrome exhaust tips come off and connect to the diffusers. I would guess the GMPP exhaust would work the same way.

the stock tips stick inside the diffusers.
to simplify the diffuser setup, basically imagine the outside airflow traveling between it and the exhaust pipe itself, then the exhaust coming out with the air going between the two, it will help pull the exhaust out increasing its efficiency.


also whatabout the gmpp exhaust? i wonder if it just sits inside of that hole or does it somehow conncet to the bumper?

as for the second part, the gmmp exhaust looks to just sit in the hole in the rear valence without the diffusers

you dont make it out of pipe, you shape pirces of metal, like sheetmetal and weld it all up, grind it nice and smooth and powdercoat,chrome or high heat paint it.

I had a very strong feeling that's how the exhaust would sit in the diffuser bumper...what a shame.

IMHO...I think those squares are hideous. If they were round...I order the ground effects kit. I'm not buying it because of how silly those trapezoids look. Exhaust pipes are supposed to be round.

IMHO.

well i didn't say it would be something anyone could do. 'custom' takes a little skill and equipment to do it right :-) it's not all bolting on stuff like on Unique Whips... ever watch Street Customs, they can so some crazy stuff

I dont like it either how they don't match up exactly, but thats the best they can do from factory without running up the price.
At least it isn't as bad as the Lexus IS-F

I actually completely disagree. The trapezoidal exhaust fits the rest of the cars angular lines much more than circular ones. It looks especially good with the shape of the taillights.

Our '08 Equinox Sport has trapezoidal exhaust tips that tie in nicely to the trapezoid shapes in the front.

exactly, the difusers fit with the rest of the car, tho it would be nice if the actual exhaust extended out a little more.

Yeah, someone's gotta make this, shouldn't be too hard, something similar to the SLP exhaust tips
