I have seen pictures of the four tail pipes out the back. Who in the USA sells them ?

No one that I know of. You could get a muffler shop to make a custom set for you.

Those all plumbed in or are 3 of them just for show?

My muffler guy's talking $30 for a fake dual tip. Double that for four, hour of install labor: looking at about $150 and change.

Tough part's going to be finding a new custom lower rear bumper plate to fit around all that floozy pipe-organry.

If you look at the back of your bumper. You will see that the trim piece in the lower center is just held on with a few bolts per say. Remove them and it will look like the one in the picture !

Found out the local exhaust shop can do what I want done.
I've two of the tips below ordered.
As soon as they come in I will have them done..
Also I have a cold air kit coming for it !
Also I pulled the rear valance off, and will trim it to fit the exhaust tips. It is only held on with 6-8 10mm bolts.

Got them installed today.
Looks so good a guy driving by the exhaust shop liked it so much he went up and bought one. And I sent him the links to the tips so he could do his !

This modification will not change back pressure any. AS I kept the stock muffler. Just added two exhaust outlets..

That definitely looks really nice. That is a lot of bang for the buck on a mod. Lets hope that the aftermarket starts making some different valance panels.

Looks like you could just make a bracket and hang a dummy exhaust tip on the other side and get the same results. Should be cheaper also.

Fake isn't worth anything in my opinion. Too many people would look up there and say.. Huh it is just a tail pipe !

I guess. You have more labor and parts. The only ones who see it would have to stick their heads under the car and notice a lack of plumbing. Just doesn't add anything but apearance so I don't see the need (personaly) to do more than apearance. I am just throwing out an alternative for the look factor.

I just cut with really sharp scissors. Still have to finish it up some day. I want to kind of match the curve of the out side.
