Need Some help with bumper burn

I got a turbo xs tbe like 3 moths ago. I noticed that the part of the bumper by the exhaust tip is buring the bumber. Is there some kind of sheild i can put on the bumper. Or something i can get to prevent this?

What do you mean there is nothing to protect the bumper, this will work http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/subar...QQcmdZViewItem

That should work fine as long as your tip isn't right on the bumper.

yeah there are shields out there but I would rather use the extra long exhaust hangers. Less Ghetto looking that way.

if you don't use an exhaust with some completely impractical 4 inch or larger tip on it, he wouldn't have that problem. I garontee you his tip is bigger than the exhaust diameter piping. The stock bumper wasn't designed for hot metal that close to it.

I have a 4-1/2 tip ( angled ) and I don't have any problems. It's not the tip size it's the hangers that are probably causing the problem.

Yea. but most tips , duel tips are 4-5 in and if the hangers arnt long enough, you get a burnt bumper. Just get some longer hangers
