Would that make either quicker?

Nope. Makes it harder to remove them too. I have quick-release lights and love them.

Alright, can't convince ya...

Do you have the model number or where you got those tips. There may be others that are interested.

Ebay. Just look for the ones that are staggered in length and come as a left/right pair.

These are NOT rolled. They're double-walled. Totally different (and keeps them from burning the rear bumper cover).

Rolled tips are only doubled up on the end. Rolled back inside themselves. These are truly double-walled with a gap in between.

Looks good Bill.
You are right about the tone change when switching from single to dual and vice-versa.
I noticed it helped big-time to go from the dual single walled slash-cut tips to the current resonated oval tips. Even the shop told me the exhaust would quite down with the oval tips.
Just have one of the girls put her hand over one tip on each side with the car running and will notice a big change immediately.

Resonator tips are expected to change the tone, but they don't last for long (in working condition for resonation anyway). The inner chamber is too small and they fill up with carbon.

But these aren't resonator tips. I really am surprised at the subtle (but still obvious) change in exhaust note from the 2.25" rectangular smash-formed OEM outlets to these.

Good to see your car with a painted hood again. The dual/duals are the only way to go on these car IMO. I thought i was nuts too when i got mine put on and noticed the sound difference. My completely stock exhaust at the time got a little louder and more 'rumbly'
