Do longer hangars really help? I was thinking of getting this exhaust but i dont really like the idea of a black bumper.

Here's a ghetto thought...

Go buy a funnel, and cut it in half. Then cut it so there is only like .5" of the thing there and tape it to your tip? Cheap ghetto diffuser till u can buy a nice one!

I'm running catless without a problem and my tip is about the same length. Weird! Anyway, if I had your problem i'd be looking into one of those carbon fiber protectors that bolts onto the bumper just above the exhaust tip.

I have the catless Blitz setup and the same thing happens. Thing is I run the silencer most of the time for the highway drone but it also keeps the carbon build up off the bumper.
