Would anyone have the dimensions for an '88 GT exhaust?

What I mean is the assembled exhaust outside tip to outside tip, and from the tips to the cat if that makes any sense?

The reason I ask is I bought an '88 exhaust from someone, fairly low miles, and am trying to figure out if it will fit in the back of my HHR.
If not, I will need to borrow a pickup to get it, and I bought it over 2 months ago, so time to get my butt in gear and pick it up if it is still there. lol

Mine has a "buzz" at certain rpms and I am sure it is the muffler or cat.

Yes, I could crawl under mine and measure it, but it is cold and rainy out here today, so if you know please post here or PM me......

Very much appreciated!

OK, the rain let up enough for me to go out and do some really quick measurements.....

For anyone picking up a whole exhaust the dimensions are......

Tip to tip, 52"
Tip to cat, 48".... or so, (hey it was wet out there!).....

LOL, love it when I can answer my own posts, but this may be valuable to someone in the future.

If I put it into my HHR Tip to cat (front to back at an angle) it will fit but it will need to be wrapped up to keep from scratching the interior.

More than glad to be of service!

Lol, glad I could help......... myself, and anyone in the future.

These original exhausts in good shape are getting extremely rare to run across, so anyone that visits a boneyard, and sees one in decent shape, hey, wrap it up and throw it in the back of your HHR!
They are stainless, so probably better than any reproduction.... now, do I want an Ocelot or not?

I picked up the Walker exhaust for my 86 GT, happy with it. I saw this post and looked it up on Walker exhausts' website and and showed a cat-back length of 48", but I hesitated to post the find because it is not intended for use on 88's (according to Walker, 85 and 86 only, actually) and I also figured the length does not include the tips.

Funny how your measurement came out. FWIW I hauled the 40094 catback in the passenger seat of my 86 (again, no tips) and it juuuuust fit at the right angle. With the option of putting a window down or a sunroof out, it's amazing what a fiero can really haul. And I hauled this without windows down or out. Anyone might work the tips off before transportation if ya have enough of the right tools on hand. Just pad it up as best as possible (especially the hanger points to avoid upholstery damage).

Geez man, I don't know what you're worried about. This is how I brought a GT exhaust home!

LMAO, I remember seeing that picture before...... looks like you have quite the "exotic" exhaust setup with that hanging out.

Yeah, I got some strange looks on the freeway during my hour-long drive home from the wrecking yard.
