Exhaust/Muffler fitment with hitch and MS rear bumper

Postby Captaincrunch » Sat Sep 25, 2010 5:25 am

Hello all. Christmas is coming soon and planning to buy myself a Christmas present. I have 2 questions.

1. Will the Curt hitch affect the fitment of an aftermarket muffler? I know the hitch is designed for the stock muffler. Will the single tip (street/race single) work with the hitch in place?

2. I see many duals have an alternate version for appearance packages (extended tip). Will that also work better with my MS rear bumper?

Thanks!

I assume you have an NC.

I have the MS bumper with the RSII and the curt hitch. If I was going to do it again, I would look at the Hard Dog hitch. Would be an easier install I think.

Yes. Forgot to mention it's an NC.

I already have the Curt hitch installed.

The Curt Hitch does not work well with the Roadstersport "Q" muffler. I had to grind off part of the brackets and shorten my Goodwin Racing mid-pipe with the slip joint to get them to fit together. I also have a Goodwin Roadstersport Race muffler and there aren't any clearance issues between the two.
