Will the st exhaust fit a diesel or does it need to be a custom job for the bumper with twin exit ;) ??

Nice one pal, looks well. Pretty quick start to a slow process! ;)

 

The ST exhaust isn't a straight fit unfortunately...

 

The ST didn't have a spare wheel well, so the big centre back box you see on the ST exhaust takes up this space on the ST. You wouldn't be able to fit the ST exhaust as there probably isn't enough clearance for it under the wheel well. You could either go down the full custom route (anything from £300-500), get a local indy to knock you something up (me and salsheikh have done this for our ST rear bumpers) for a lot less, or just get the one side 'plumbed' in and a matching dummy tailpipe on the other side, which should be even less costly again..

Quick question ( I'm going to sound like a right ford virgin) but the bumper I brought ^ I didn't ask the guy weather it was a pre facelift model ( as my car is ) but would this cause a problem if it was a facelift rear bumper ?? ( I know face lift means front lol ) but I didn't know if it was different ?? Thanks people

Facelift bumpers will fit but the rear has different shape reverse/fog lights and the bulb holders to them are different.
The bumper physically swaps over just fine.
