Tips stick out way too far....Solution?

Has anyone else ran into this problem? I always used to laugh at those mid 90s v6 camaros with the exhaust tips sticking out 4 inches. Well, it just so happens that my exhaust isn't too far from sticking out 4 inches either. Does anyone have a good solution? I'll attach a picture. I have Pype Bombs with an O/R X.

Hmm go to an exhaust shop and tell them to chop off a couple inches from the catback and you should be good

I only have an X pipe and a Axleback. If I cut a little bit of the pipe off....In theory wouldn't it mess with where the hangers will hang on the brackets?

No it won't as long as you cut after the hanger

Yeah, the m80s are welded in. Sounds amazing. Now I just need to figure out how to get these tips pushed in a little. Ehhhh

Had the Pype Bombs cut about 3 inches before the hanger and welded back up on both sides. Now the tips are directly underneath the bumper cutouts. Looks a MILLION times better. $45 for both. Not too bad. I suggest if anyone has Pype Bombs and they stick out too far, get them moved back, it looks so much cleaner.

It was a super simple process.

I have the pype bombs and they fit fine. Have you tried pushing you x pipe and as far to the front as possible and also doing the same with the axel backs?

I had about 3 inches cut out of the actual axleback today. It looks so great now. The tips are perfectly lined up under the bumper cutout.
