03-04 base Dual Exhaust Tip???

I want to replace my single exhaust tip for a dual exhaust tip on my 03 base.

I searched the forum for hours last night and I'm more confused then when I started. Most of the posts I read seemed to say that the 03-04 986 tips were interchangeable with the 987 tips. When I go onto parts web sites, they only list the tips I have liked as 05 and up 987 tips.

I know that my tip has a single bolt in the bottom center holding it on, it looks like the 987 tips clamp on. Will they still work on my 03 with the clamp?

This is the tip I found I really like, but again it says it's for 987's

Any advice or other duel tips to look at would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, ekam. I pulled off my tip to see what I was dealing with, it looks pretty unique from the other years I have seen. I called all the P car dismantles around here today and they just about laughed at me when I asked for a 03-04 S tip.

I googled it and found 2 that should fit, anyone have any experience with either of these?

Does anyone have any other good sources for a duel tip for the '03?

Exhaust tip

I happen to have an exhaust tip that was on my car for a short time. Maybe 250 miles and then I changed mufflers. It's the one that is shown on the FVD web site. I can take a picture if your interested.

Thanks!
