Take a close look at the length of your tail pipes. If they do not  
come a little past  the back edge or the bumper the aero dynamics of  
the car will cause the exhaust fumes to come forwareds into the  
cockpit .

We usually have to put a chrome extension on the ends of the  
replacement systems to prevent this problem.
