It will May be uncivilized but when my OEM goes from all the salt here, I'm going with High flow cat, stainless pipe and the biggest straight thru design I can get my hands on. In Red of course. Cause Red really is faster.
sorry for getting a bit off topic here, but the largest pipe is not always the best solution, and can result in a loss of torque. If you are running a pipe that is too large, it will dissipate heat far too rapidly, and cause the exhaust to cool down, hot gasses flow faster and more efficiently than cool gasses, the best bet is to go with a proper size ( NOT the largest) and use mandrel bent tubing.

i am kinda tired of the chrome tips, and the sse/ssei tips wont look right, since the bumper doesnt cover them on an SE. It will be like a sleeper look. I still have to decide what I want. if I want to add tips to the end of them. Tips can always be added later.

it fits, but they stick out the bottom of the bumper. If I had an SSEi bumper, and the tips where in the bumper, I would do it. I also cant find any sse/ssei around here. I will have to make the decision. I didnt really see any tips I liked today anyhow.

its a good idea and all, I just dont think I would like the look. I think that the sleeper effect is what I want. Thanks elmachogerao or how ever you spell it. Your flowmaster info really helped.
