I remember seeing a pic a few yrs ago. If I remember, it had gills in it and wasn't curved to match the bumper just flat.

Well heres what i have found so far and ive been looking for like 5 days now. This was taken at a show at chicanes store in LA last year . Look at the lower right corner of the bumper and you will see the insert for the cobras ive been talking about. I bought his last one last week and have a good visual on what it looks like , the one in the pic is crome mine will be black with crome 4 inch magnflow tips in the center.

i remember when i was doing my center exhaust I had found some good pics of both saleen center exit bumpers and the cobra insert you are looking for. I'll see if I can find them.
EDIT: never mind I cant find jack.

Thanks man tht would be nice ive searched high and low and thats the only pic i came up with, i talked with joe from chicane today and he said there were not many pics that he knows of that were taken of that center exhaust templet. So if you can come up with some that would be great. And i listen to your car on youtube , sounds fricken awesome with that center exhaust. thanks again.

so what exactly is it, a curved metal plate?

IMO id just pick up another 03/04 Cobra rear, cut out the current duals and plasticweld them in the center, than take those pieces of material and plastiweld them to the old dual cutouts, and a little body work and repaint and itll look WAY ****ing cleaner than some sheet metal plate (from the looks in that pic).

I recall seeing the Chicane cobra at a saleen show in Irvine several years ago. I'll dig for the pics. The center exhaust looked pretty slick on there. The metal or aluminum piece didn't fit flush with the curbed contour of the stock bumper though. You're probably better off creating your own piece out of fiberglass and then adapt it to the center exhaust kit. Overall I liked the idea, however it could have been executed better imho.

This might actually look cool. Post some pics when it's done.

+1, as long as you don't put little scoops on the exhaust tips it might not look half bad. Also, leave it flat black, it looks like a pepboy's special all chromed out.

It will be black and ive thought about just getting new bumper, but over all this is much easier then doing all that work to fill in the stock cut outs. To be honest we wont know what its going to look like tell its done. so im sure you guys will give your honest svt god thoughts on the final look. Ive got a good idea on how its going to look, but we shall see.

Wait a minute, does your Cobra still have an IRS? Is so, you can forget about a center exhaust.
