I was wondering,
1.if i cut the sedan vibrant to fit the hatchback, where would the installer cut it?
2.Has anyone done this?
3.Will there be any harm done using a sedan version instead of the hatch version?
if so, what?
Thanks

I'm sure a decent exhaust shop can shorten it up for you no problem.

really? thought it was perfectly straight from the tip to the bend on the cross member? that should be more than a foot.

Ah, I see.

That's easy still, just lop off the end, and extend it with a pipe or shorten. Shouldn't take long-- let the muffler shop worry about it :goodjob:
