I'm definitely doing the mod where I cut a hole in my diffuser and want to add a duAl exhaust tip. The thing I have now is a little less than two inches in diameter and curves towards the ground. Do I have to cut the old tip or remove it or even replace the muffler all together? Also I'm not sure what diameter I want. Someone school me please :confused:

If you want growl and the slightest response gain get a new muffler. If you just want to add the tip see if it is welded on or screwed on. I never checked mine before chopping the muffler off for the HF muffler.

^^ Agreed. As far as diameter, it depends on what look you're going for. If you want nice/subtle quad tips, I'd say 3" (each tip), if you just want two big dual tips, then go larger of course. ;) Good luck and don't forget the pics when it's all done. :)

If its the 4 door stock muffler, then just cut the end before the turn down and you can buy tips that screw on. Simple. But to dual it youll have to have a shop weld the other pipe somewhere, and in that case a new muffler with 2 outlets would be ideal.

Got it off ebay. Came out pretty good at least until I put the real thing on. Here's the link.
