Stupid situation.

My completely stock POS has been sitting under a sheet for the last 3 years. I noticed that my tip is just dangling from the muff.

If I drive this w/ no tip for 300 miles, will my bumper get fux0red?

Will they smog w/ no tip? Thinking about putting on turbo exhaust w/ turbine housing blocked off + DP.

Why not spend $10 at a muffler shop to have it welded back on? Or have a friend do it. Do you have no welding connections?

None whatsoever.

Yes, but hate to spend money w/ a a good one waiting for me.

Will probably need to do that but will likely be more than $10 over here.

I'm a cheapass btw.

If its behind the edge more than about an inch, Yes bumper will be droopy after 300mi.

Get it welded. Cheep people don't like to buy bumpers.

If you're ever near Sunnyvale I'll stick it back in for free.

Yes. It WILL melt the **** out of it.

PO of my car left it and melted the bumper. Screwed up the crash bar really bad, and melted the wiring going to the corner marker in the bumper.

Soup cans and hose clamps. Or whatever. The only option to spending money is being Macguyver.
