I assume you are just referring to the Accufab exhaust here, but your replies are misleading and confusing to the newbies here.
I beg to differ. I have done nothing but to try to clarify what is and what is not possible.... and correct misleading/inaccurate posts.
The Accufab has NEVER been sold as a bumper delete exhaust. By its design, the Accufab is still completing a bend where it would need to be cut to have a bumper delete version. Like the OEM exhaust, you can still run it with a bumper delete kit, but the tips are going to stick out about 8-9 inches.
Regarding the Heffner, you are correct historically, but incorrect now. We have had 2 Heffner exhaust on order since August. The ETA for those exhausts continued to slide and now there is an indefinite delay. Hopefully, Heffner will resolve his staffing issues (another business clobbered by COVID), but as of now the only bumper-delete exhaust that can be purchased is the Borla - and then the RBD kit ordered with the shortened tips.
The question was asked " I assumed they were built to order and could be spec'd out to be shorter?",
Yes, that was exactly the question. If YOU follow the THREAD - and they are called THREADS for a reason, the context was in reference to Accufab's X-pipe. X-pipe is the name of the Accufab exhaust. Heffner's is not an X-pipe design, nor is it referenced as an X-pipe... so we are discussing the Accufab X-pipe when there was SPECULATION that it could be purchased as a shorter version. It cannot, nor has it ever been orderable this way.
Post 21-24 are consistent and without ambiguity - not sure why you or a future reader could be confused?
Apparently Heffner is really dragging on making their x-pipes so Kendell isn't taking orders for them. Anyone have any other recommendations? Also how do you find/order from The GT Guys? I've tried searching them and could not locate. Thanks.
Like nota4re said cutting the Accufab tips can be tricky as the underside of the exhaust has a long bend and any cut has to be done before the bend starts.
From what I could see about 4" could be be cut with the same tapered cut that contours similar to butt of car.
You get about 2" sticking out from bumper if cut there.
Not sure a few inches will make much difference (to the cut off length) to the sound.
