Those fabspeed pipes are 3.25". Probably more approriate in diameter for our cars vs the 3.5" --83 vs 90mm
Word. Keep me posted. I'm scheduled to get the mod done the week after next and would like to do this at the same time.

Just a heads up guys the Fabspeed catback isnt gonna be that much more expensive than an OEM mod with the cost of tips. And IMO the Fabspeed muffler cans are the best looking for our car as they are light and very well hidden. Of all the exhausts Ive owned Fabspeed has the best looking tips especially with a diffuser. The Akra tips look to fake, the Dinan tips are fixed and too thin, the RPI tips are too big, the OEM black edition tips are too small...I'm picky and you get the picture!

I agree with you on the exhaust tips. I always liked the Eisenmann LeMans the best, I had no idea that the Fabspeed ones had a similar design. These two I find suit the car the best. I'm hoping the set of tips will be $400 or less. The akrapovic ones are $1400 for the set of 4 which is silly IMO.

They couldn't provide just the tips. I bought custom tips not meant for our cars, I just had a fabricator cut them to the correct length and weld them in place.

Where did you get the OEM exhaust mod done? A local exhaust shop should be able to get you some custom tips to your liking.

Just buy any tips you want with a minimum 7.5" length and 2.75" inlet. You just cut and weld the tips how you want em. Doesn't take too long.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the inner tips are supposed to stick out more ie longer than the outer tips. Sorry!

Here's the story: I bought the Vorsteiner type 2 diffuser for our car and installed it today. I was planning on keeping the stock exhaust since I did the OEM perforated modification to it and love the sound. I would highly recommend it if you're just looking for a deeper, throater, and significantly louder exhaust. No drone either.

Back to the topic... so I installed the diffuser, and realized that the diffuser completely blocks the exhaust tips from the top and the sides so that you can barely see them unless you're standing directly from behind. Basically the exhaust tips now look like s**t. I didn't realize this since I've only been viewing pics online.

So here's my question, where can I buy exhaust tips for our cars? I particularly like the Akrapovic and the Eisenmann LeMans designs (bigger diameter). Are there any available that are similar to these? Also, is it possible to mount the tips so they extrude more from the back to match the diffuser?

I need a quick solution as I'm heading back to the garage next week. Any suggestions?


Thanks!
Ahhh....the wonderful world of modding where one mod leads to another which leads to another, etc.

I'm actually grateful to you for posting this. I was thinking about the V2 diffuser myself. Now I might have to reconsider. I really like the stock tips. The thick walls make them very visible and I like their overall length and positioning.

The one thing I don't like about tips like Akra is that they look like fake tips. I want the whole tip to be properly welded to the can.

One thing I did do was to put a good metal polish on the rear muffler and polish the weld sites with a dremel tool. Helps the rear to look "okay".
Got pics of the polished unit?
