Two Quick Questions
I haven't seen either of these asked searching around online so I figured someone here might be able to clarify two questions I have. The first question I have is that I'm looking to replace the exhaust on my 3K, it's a base SOHC 98. For some of the exhaust systems I've been looking at they list them as functioning for the VR4 models, but don't mention anything on base models, whether they're compatible or not in general for any of them. I'm not sure if they're interchangeable like quite a few things are between all of the models. I don't really trust my local Mitsubishi dealership for getting me the correct information since they completely managed to get me the wrong thermostat housing and gasket replacement, and a few other OEM parts that were cheaper to order through them than online, even with all of the information and vin. The stock one was on its last legs and corroded as can be since the previous owner or someone they took it to for work couldn't be bothered to make sure the hoses were properly attached. I know I could just test the waters and return the exhaust if it's not compatible, but I'd rather not have to go back and forth to find out.
The other question is simple, can I change the rear bumper out for a gen 1 rear bumper? I'm assuming there would be some fiddling to get it to fit on a gen 2 body, but I'm also just curious if the rear bumper is interchangeable like the rear center garnish since the mold for the plastic on all years appears to be the same, but with a few differences.
