WP started weeping. WTF, only 194,600 miles on it.

Pulled a spare and gasket off the shelf. An hour later the Regal was ripping the roads up again.

Those are some huge tips! I like them, but I think I'm gonna go with rolled stainless instead of slash cuts.

What'd the tips run?

Picked them up on an ebay auction for $60.99/free shipping. Normally around $75 buy it now and on Summit. I like them because they're very close to the GXPs. I would've went with rolled too but didn't want to spend over $100 on the tips so I stuck with these for now. Might switch em eventually

Hmmm. My muffler guy is installing me some stainless rolled tips for $100. That'* tips and labor. I figured that was a good deal. Must have been right.

Good choice though, they're nice. Huge too, unlike my little pea-shooters.

Hehe, granted I don't know what they look like, but they're 1 into 2 like I have now and 2 1/4 inches I think. Maybe I'll ask him to get me a picture of them.
