Looking for Dual-Walled tips for the oem muffler

Has anyone been able to source dual-walled tips for the oem muffler? All of the one i've found either have a 2.5" inlet or a 3" inlet. Per the threads i've found it needs to be a 2.75" inlet to fit over the pipes leaving the muffler. I'd imagine the exhaust shop can stretch the metal for the 2.5's to work, but wanted to ask before I purchased a set.

I prefer a slightly angled tip abut at the same time am not opposed to straight cut. Stainless or chrome doesnt matter.

TIA!

I don't recall seeing anything M specific yet. You could always but a set of Akrapovic ones.

Cyba used to sell black rolled tips I believe. Now he only sells the single wall in either black or burnt titanium.

Im not look for anything M-specific per se. It can be a universal tip that someone has been slightly modified to work.

If I do Akra, itll be the whole exhaust. Screw paying $1k for exhaust tips.

after talking to a muffler shop, they said it'd be easier to get a 2.5" tip and stretch it out rather than a 3" tip and modify it to work.

I've found a few 2.5" tips that will work so i'm going to buy 4 of them and post up the results.

How do you stretch a dual walled tip?
