hi all

cars booked in for a cat back on 22nd, as current system is more exhaust paste than metal, i think its still the original, and i also wanted to open up the sound a little to let that lovely i6 sound out, but nothing loud or drone, been there on the 200sx, never again.

Anyway, my plan is to have twin tips like stock, but larger, filling the recess nicely, and have the tips staggered so inline with bumper curve, seen this before and looks lovely.

But

The devil on my shoulder is hinting at doing something a little different, a definitive no no for ovals, slots, huge singles or that nonsense, but thinking dual exit... However, i'm not a fan of making cars look like other cars, i.e... dont want to imitate a M as its not... but twin duals are an option for not much more £, and its looks really nice... but not a M tho :)

I have been toying with the idea of dual exit, but single tips, probably 2-3inch depending on size... has this ever been done, would it look ok, or like its missing two tips lol?

I did this on my celica 190 just for looks and looked really nice

Appreciate some input, and if anyone has p'shop skills then a mock up please on a black zed will be nice, theres a pic below of mine taken just now




personally feel i will go single exit, twin staggered tips, but could be persuaded :coolsteer)

cheers

My photoshop skill are pants, but here is my effort!



Personally think that, slightly larger twin exhaust pipes look best. These are the Eisenmann 78mm pipes on my Z3 :x

Thanks gaz.

Cars booked in next Wednesday and have opted for single exit twin tips, but starting to think I may go quad... Decisions!

I certainly prefer twin or quad exhaust outlets and think the single ovel pipes look ugly but then again I am biased having the ///M to look at. :p

Re: exhaust poll and a photoshop request for those with skil

order changed to quad exit :)

i have succumb to the ///M side :D

only downside is had to shift the apointment back a week! but only cost £100 extra to have quad 76mm tips, rolled inward, straight cut and staggered

:coolsteer)

Good call. You know you would have regretted it if you didn't!

Just need a can or two of tyre gunk to replace the spare wheel.

For those that have had quads fitted, how does the fitter/fabricator get around the battery well? It seems in the way?
