Exhaust Cutouts on a GT Bumper

Hey I have a 91 GT but I need to replace my tailpipes... The one on my passenger side has a whole in it I have a flow master cat back and I was wondering how hard it is to make a cut out in a GT bumper to get stainless steel lx ones to fit they are 2.5in.. What tools would I need? Is there a template? I know that they need to be welded thanks in advance

Ive seen it done before and it just doesnt look right, you would probly need to use a sawzall if you do it. Have you considered getting a saleen bumper? It has the cutouts and looks wicked with the gt body kit

Problem with running a saleen bumper on a gt is the moldings dont match up and looks worse than just cutting out the slots. If you want the lx style pipes sell the gt bumper and by a cobra bumper.

You can trade your gt bumpers for lx bumpers and use the saleen kit

Either run the turndowns for the GT bumper, run sidepipes or run dumps if you don't mind the cabin noise. Or swap to a Cobra bumper and then run polished tips.

Lol YMMV, I wanted to kill myself after even a 20 minute drive with the 40 series/OR pipe and dumps.
