Default Uncle Bens??

Finally got the duals on, but I'm not sure if I like the 3 inch pipes or not. To me, it looks a little bit rice.
The magnaflow muffler surprised me. It'* not nearly as loud as I thought it might be considering there is nothing inside it but empty space. Just a nice mellow rumble hardly noticible from inside the car.

QFT

I'd find some new tips, or maybe have those tucked under the bumper more.

You should have seen them before I cut 10 inches off them.

I should have got some pictures of that.

They're good looking tips, but about 2" less showing would be perfect...got a vid for the sound?

Angling them was my original intent. I cut them the size they are now for fitment purposes but broke my last hack saw blade before I could finish. Too darn lazy to run to the hardware store for the third time and didn't want to put the old muffler back on.

IMO, twin chrome double tips, farther to the corners and with just a little reveal would be much more attractive.

your current setup looks like it belongs on a truck

Ouch!!

You're right, I'm hoping that cutting them at an angle and shortening them by a few inches will tone it down (visually).
