It's about 3.5 inches.

Are you looking into getting one?

installed yesterday

purchased slip on system. shop commented on ease of fitment
sounds awesome. I am planning on adding the HFC section next. In my opinion, this is everything it was promised to be. When driven gently, is no more intrusive than OEM, but when punched hard, is present in a very inviting way......I can see why BMW would purchase these for their ultimate Road/ Track cars (M3 GTS)

I know that IND has a polished set of tips stocked, maybe you can ask Nate or Ilia if they will trade it for your tips
To purchase them on top is too pricey - you should have ordered them directly with your system.

I wonder how much is there a difference of sound between the two systems.

Turner only offers stock Akra, IND has full variety on tips and customized x-pipes - if it is 200cpsi cats or adapters to make them fit other axle back systems. If your tips are still fresh and you are looking to trade them in, I would do it now. Just ask Nate.
