    Hey everyone i'm new on here and have a question. I got a good deal on a SS magnaflow exhaust system for an lx, but i drive a 90 gt. Because i like the straight exhaust tips for the lx i wanted to keep the system and install a 93 cobra bumper instead. Just wanted to know if anyone has ever done this, and if it worked. Thanks!

    Yes, it is a common swap. You will need to extend the rear exhaust hangers a little bit for the LX exhaust to work with your cobra bumper.

    Here is a picture of a GT with Cobra GFX and rear bumper...

    actually you dont need to extend the hangers. Here,s my GT with Cobra rear bumper and Flowmaster 3" tailpipes, unmodified. They just tuck up a bit more, which I prefer

    CAUGHT YOU LOOKING AT REAR ENDS! :rolleyes:

    Seriously, I may have to upgrade my LX after these pics. I always wanted the fog light switch to do something, so the whole kit would be cool.

    It probably depends somewhat on the exhaust system I suppose. On my LX project the exhaust physically touches the bumper, so I will have to extend the hangar.

    You may need slightly longer hangars on the tailpipes to clear the bumper. It will depend on the system. I'd recommend a little bit of a gap to avoid warping the bumper. I've seen this happen when tailpipes are too physically close to the bumper and heat it up
