In every way, they're not even in the same universe. I've heard both in person. The q300 can diaf as far as I'm concerned, the lg90 makes the car sound like a Porsche.

This is probably the quietest exhaust you can put on the car, I think it's quieter than stock.

Assuming the above is possible, would some heat shield between the exhaust tip, and the reverse light, be enough to stop it from melting/failing from the heat?

If the above is a no go then a simple standalone aftermarket or subaru reverse lights with compatible wiring/connector might be the easiest fix. I'm thinking of placing the standalone reverse light in the empty space next to the exhaust tip (assuming heat isn't an issue) or maybe to the right of the bumper close to the stock exhaust tip.

Right now I'm having trouble finding standalone aftermarket/OEM reverse lights as a google search of 'subaru reverse light' is giving me results for replacement bulbs or reverse lights integrated with tail lights
I'm already bought another reverse light module to make a center hole, but not yet started. As watching several stock bumpers of recent cars, I think this could be done.

I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but if this redesign also had an option for a quad tip outlet that fit a trd rear bumper that would be awesome.

It takes all the "ratta-tatta-tatta" and turns it into "raffa-taffa-taffa."

Bump.

My wife swears she saw another Ultramarine or GBS with an LG90 in Camas the other day. He had relocated his backups to cover the original exhaust cutouts. YOHB?

I've been lazy about getting my backups working.

Rigid Industries makes a set of flush mount backup lights. My plan (when I get this exhaust eventually) is to mount those in exhaust cutout covers and terminate the leads with wedge type connectors (easy to find on ebay). That way everything looks nice, but is also completely reversible JIC
