looks good. if its over 3 inch round, how did you attach it to your exhaust? as there would be an overlap. i just bought an angle cut tip which cost me 15 bucks, looks good and shiney tho

i had a short piece of pipe that fit perfectly over the 2 1/2" and it had been stretched so a bit of 3" fit over that and the 3 1/4 pipe fit tight over that .
so yea there is a bit of overlap .

no one has asked how i joined alloy to steel yet..

so i will tell you anyway.
after i cut the 2 1/2 pipe as short as i could before that bend at the back
i got a piece of pipe that has been stretched to fit inside the 3" pipe which is about 2mm thick + the 3" pipe is about 2mm thick so when it is overlaped and welded i had approx 4 mm of steel all i did was slip the alloy pipe over the top and drilled and tapped 2 small holes and used 2 bolts with locktight.

and thats about it..

nice, though a twin would look awsome


But maybe with the tip welded on straight! lol.


I got the same tips :D along with the VY SS's. How do you keep yours so clean Till?

Though you just need your bumper to sink down a little like mine :D


I only got it done like last week mate. I haven't washed my car in over a month, so the tips will be dirty soon enough, lol.

I will get the system raised when I lower my car, and THEN I'll have the tip straighten and set back a little and a little higher also. Want it more plush with the actual bar.

lol @ Glenn. Looking good without the wing.
