No problem. I found a twin exhaust tip online that I like. Once I confirm with my mechanic that he can do it (cut the exhaust outlet, and do the cutout on the bumper) then I am ordering it.

Here it is: http://fasttoys.net/shop/Twin-Rolled...-Exhaust-Tips/

Hot Rod Scotts is a good place for exhaust work. He also has a wall of exhaust tips. Bought my tip there and had them install it.
Great work and fair prices.

Thanks. What were his prices like? (Part? Labour?)

The tip I bought was around $70.
And if I recall he charged me $150 in labour to remove my stock exhaust, weld the tip on the new exhaust and install.

I went to Hot Rod Scotts yesterday but didn't find what I was looking for. They didn't have a twin exhaust tip that I liked. They had two: one with oval shapes which I didn't like, and the other was too large (more for trucks). But when I talked to them on the phone they were very friendly and helpful.

I don't understand how a shop/mechanic can connect an exhaust tip like this one

http://fasttoys.net/shop/Twin-Rolled...-Exhaust-Tips/

To the outlet of my car's exhaust after cutting the bent part. It just doesn't seem like there is enough edge to attach the tip to the exhaust outlet after cutting the bent part. Any thoughts?

Bring it in to someone and let them determine if they can do it.

The front pumper split looks amazing. I finally got it done. No wind noise and doesn't stick below the original pumper much (an inch or two max), so you don't need to buy side skirts to match its level. Pretty good quality, and the fit is not bad at all for an after market product. (I've seen much worse fitments!)

Here is a photo.

Is doing the exhaust tip cut out myself a difficult task? How easy is it to work with the bumper material? (I can't drop the car at the mechanic for a day any time soon so they can do it, so it looks like I have to do it myself.)
