Default new tips?

Whaddya think of the price for these? $76 a pair, with resonators. Might keep me from adding a glasspack?

That is exactly what I've been looking for. I once ordered a VERY similar pair from JC Whitney, then got a crd a few weeks later that they were discontinued. Since then I haven't found anything reasonably priced.

Those tips look nice Bill. Where are they from? I'm going to get some tips soon since one of my stock ones no longer stays on

i really don't think the resonators just in the tips will make a difference.

Will, are they chrome or SS? Remember the twin rolled tips I JUST put on my SSEi in mid March? Well, they are getting replaced next week under warranty with oval SS tips with resonators. They look alot like the 96-99 stock tips, but larger and resonators.
Just thought I'd warn you. Mine are horrible (no shine at tips and chrome is peeling even with weekly polishing.
Luckily, Alex Exhaust is A#1 to work with and do more than stand behind their products.
