Not too sure about the "slant" on those pipes in the pic, but they are really nice looking. I prefer the stock cowbells.

I like them. They look real sharp

I wish Maggy had made mine in a slant cut

Lol....that'* great! I wish I could better visualize how the round pipes in the "square" hole would look....can someone photoshop them onto your car? or may just draw a scetch to get an idea. At anyrate...being different is great..and even if it is a little "freaky"...it matches you and your name, right?

Worse case scenario...you buy them....have someone hold them up to see what they look like without actually putting them on...if you hate it...re-sell them on ebay!

I'm thinking about polishing the stock tips to a psuedo-chrome look. I did it on an old TPI intake plenum, so I know I can do the same to the tips.

I like the dual look. I've been wanting to swap mine out for a while and just haven't made time to do it...

How long are the stock tips from end to end? I know I wanted to throw a pair from a Trans Am but they were too long.

I'm glad I'm not the only guy who thinks the stock tips on these cars rock.

That being said, Andrew those tips you have there look sweet. I bet they'll go great with the color of your car.

I think that the stock tips look really good on these cars, and the only thing I would do to make the tips look better is polish them and push them towards the back of the car like 1.5" or so. They just sit too far under the bumper IMO.

The aluminum end face is easy to keep polished but the only problem with pushing them back farther is they might scrape the ground more over some inclined driveways.
I have already scraped mine a couple of times when the car was loaded....even with the air leveling system. Ground about 1/16" off the bottom but they were easy to file clean due to their very thick construction.
