Exhaust Cutout Help?

I just ordered a mac catback system and I dont want the pipes to hang under the bumper, so I think i'm going to cut out inserts with a hole saw. The tips are 3'' so I was wondering what size of cutout I should use. I was thinking either 3.5'' or 4''. I want it to be as close to the oem gt bumper as I could without buying one. Also is the gt bumper inserts more like 1/2 a circle or 1/4 the circle or what? Thanks

The gt bumper is a 1/2 circle. A CRUDE measurement on my bumper is about 5.5 or 6 inches.

The inside circle where its actually cut. If i had a tape measure i would give you a definite measurment but i dont have a tape measure. The tips on my car are 3.5 inches and there is about 1 inch on either side of them.

Re: Exhaust Cutout Help?

The stock tips on mine were 3". 2.5"s seems a bit small.
