I have 3 inch magnaflow tips, they're a little longer than yours though and you can't see the welds when your standing next to the car, no cutouts, I dont care for the gt bumper myself.

Well wasnt sure if you were gonna slap on some ugly monster 4“ tip..lol...well ive seen people use a hole saw...if you wanna clean look you could samd down the edges where you cut, mix up alittle bondo and spread it with your finger where you cut the hole, it makes where you cut much smoother wait for it to dry and sand it down...but the key to all this is finding out where exactly your gonna cut but the only way to do that is mock up your exhaust system ...or you could do what ive seen alot of people do cut the hole to match up exactly where the driver side one sits..

Sorry wasn't clear on that lol I just meant I wouldn't do the cutouts if I were him, I don't even like the GT bumpers that gen personally though. Just put mine out there for reference in case he just decides on changing tips, mine are a bit longer and hide well. I'd assume you could still achieve a good look with some patience and angling without cutting the bumper, unless you like that look, then break out the dremel!!!! Lol

Damn thats smart i never thought of a dremel, that would be much more controllable and provide a better end result

You can control the speed better too, finish it off with some 320 or something fine, should work like a charm
