tse 3 catback or tse 3 light for a xi?

not sure if its worth buying the tse3 catback since the pipes will not match up right without having to be re bent. or if its better to buy the tse3 light and remove all resonators.


thanks

Talk to the folks at UUC Motorwerks, I have an xi and I understand the full TSE3 will not fit due to the all wheel drive setup. JG

the transfer case gets in the way... you can get the full exhaust and have an exhuast shop cut and weld the difference in or just get the light.

If you like the sound of the system go for it! Realistically what needs to be done to get the system to fit properly is child's play to any exhaust shop.



Then again if its just sound you're looking for you can pretty much go with any muffler.
