Looking towards dual tips now. Those fabulous set look clean. Scraped holes in my stock ucf20 exhaust on the way back from the BOS meet. Took it to a local muffler shop. Cut off my flanges after the cat, deleted the resonator and mid muffler, added an x-pipe and 2.25" piping all the way down. Still have the stock rear mufflers though. Looking for the right look. Amazing clearance with what's been done though.

i'm still deciding if i should keep the stock Y pipe and cut off the exhaust after the stock Y and just replace the 2nd muffer and axle back with magnaflow 10428
i want the keep my exhaust relatively quiet it's a luxury car after all

Doesn't sound like a bad idea. Actually looks good. Were you keeping the resonator? just curious. You would have to find some sleek mufflers for the mid muffler set-up though. I removed the cat flange, resonator and the mid mufflers just so the shop could tuck everything above frame level.I was scraping my mid mufflers like crazy before.

Ya, I work there. The eyelids are made by junction produce. Got them from a friend that gets me all my parts from Japan.

look at the exhaust layout thread in the FAQ for questions on how best to lay out your new setup.

i'm a fan of quads. I've had another set to replace the DTM-style tips ive had on the car the past 5 years but havent had the chance to go to the exhaust shop

i wanted to keep resonator cuz i want a quiet exhaust system .

i think if you want to replace the center exhaust maybe you can replace with a resonator or CAT or maybe something like this http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/s...=main&id=10134 which you should be able to tuck it pretty tight against the body to avoid rubbing.
