I had a can of High Temp VHT paint in Aluminum color. I used to blend in the colors of the two metals. Worked great and took me about 5 min to do.

LOL....waste of space. You'll end up tossing them.

Before you pay to put those back on you should add a resonated X-pipe. That will be your muffler and give you just a little performance.

Ahhh Caverman! I've been looking for your thread about your setup since yesterday! Thank you for posting it up!

I am strongly considering the resonated X-Pipe. I didn't get aftermarket tips, but the ones you use do look sharp. I planned on doing this as a step by step process, essentially following your build. I will Re-Read it and shoot any questions your way if you don't mind?

always happy to toss out some suggestions.

Once I switched over to headers and the 3" Magnaflow exhaust I sold mine to a guy with a 2LT for $300. Sounded alot better than I thought it would on a V6. They need the resonated x-pipe to keep if from sounding like a ricer.

Muffler delete on a V6 is no good. Muffler delete with resonated x-pipe on a V6 .

[QUOTE=Stone★ColdNuts;3176525]Just had a local muffler shop cut off my jerry can's.



Question: Is the replacement pipe used a strait pipe, or did they had to bend it with a mandrel to weld your original tips?
Do you know what's the size of pipe and its lenght?
thanks
mike

What size of pipe was it, do you know?
thanks

It was 2.5 inch pipe to match the rest of the exhaust as far as I know. Stainless steel, not sure what grade. It started out as straight pipe, but they bent it to fit.

Welcome to the club! One thing you NEED to do... stand about 5 feet directly behind your car, then have your fiance(or a buddy) get in and fire it up, after you pick your jaw off the ground have them rev it up to 3-4k a couple of times....I just had my wife do this a couple weeks ago, I almost needed to change my pants after, it was AWESOME!!!!

A resonoated X-pipe from Magnaflow will help a little. Won't get rid of it but should tame it down some.

I will likely do the resonated x-pipe within the next few weeks. I will update when it is finished.

So far, so good with the setup though.

if you are a manual car you can simply push the clutch in / take it out of gear and this will eliminate 99% of the pops. the other 1% me get help from an x-pipe...

if your an auto a tune will eliminate the pop

i love my muffler delete....
