you can mount the exhaust's hangars into the center of the rubber mounts instead of the round space at the end. that's free unless you want to paypal me $0.50 for the idea
i think i can spare the $0.50 haha.

yeah. i cut one of the rubber hangers in half and used some clamps to pull it up. its about a little more than a finger gap in between the bumper and exhaust tip

yeah it looks really nice raised up. I actually bought my HFP with no exhaust flange but included the stock muffler for $50. So i had to take it to a shop anyway, i just had them redo the hangers cuz i never thought about using the middle of the rubber hanger thing... haha

thanks for the pics Redrumm! The muffler is coming in today. Does that keep the muffler pretty secure? i'd hate to have it move around while driving.

i'd imagine that it would move less because there's no longer any 'play' in the rubber mounts. it looks so much better where it sits now; it's like a girl you know could be hot if she just fixed her self up a bit.

Hello. May I ask how you forced that in since the middle section looks like an "H." Can you post a photo of it, please?

Could any of you who posted the pictures on the trick to raise the HFP exhaust post a quick step by step guide. I want to buy this exhaust and I want to do it right the first time to make it look good. Thanks!
