    I can do that but I'm away from my computer right now and can't figure it out on my phone. Lol

    How did you get the fake tips off the valance? I removed the two upper and lower screws, as well as the hex bolt middle bottom... Still will not come off... Last thing I want to do it break it ;-)

    The tips we're already removed when I bought the valance. I have them stored away so if I decide to sell the valance later they'll go with it.

    Okay. For anyone interested, these are the tips I used to fit the GT350 valance to my Roush mufflers. As I mentioned in my earlier post they ended up too long and stuck out too far once installed. I cut off as much as possible (probably 2" inches) from the inlet end as I could but still use the original clamps from my Roush mufflers. If you have access to a welder and can weld them to the mufflers, you could probably cut even more off and move them in even farther. Now these work with my Roush mufflers because they "Y" off evenly and spread out equally on the valance.
    Good Luck All!

    To help out, I recently installed the GT350 valance (OEM). I kept the fake tips and installed the GT350 specific corsa exhaust. It will fit, you just need GT reducers in the front of the X pipe instead of the GT350 ones. But will bolt on like any other exhaust.

    Just as a side note for anybody who comes across this thread in the future: On my premium '15 i successfully and quite easily married a GT350 rear valance with a Solo Performance cat-back exhaust. Their systems don't have rear mufflers so it is easy for an exhaust shop to fab up some Y connectors to meet the fake exhaust tips in the valance. If you are handy enough, you might even be able to buy a pre-made Y connector and modify it yourself to meet the fake exhaust tips.

    Silveryote did the GT350 rockers/side skirts fit without issues? I just ordered two used (900 miles) that are same color of my car along with all new clips and fasteners ;-)
