Default Dual exhaust tip concept



This is just me screwing around in photoshop but I think I'd like to get a shop to fab these up for me.

I wonder if there are any tips I can already make work though. I haven't seen them but maybe some of you guys have.

Thoughts?

Looks like the exhaust from the Lexus ISF.

I am not much for it to be honest. if they were side by side like the 2013 gt500 it would look alright, but the angle and offset of these just dont look right.

Yeah, they do. As to the angle, yeah I can understand that but I think that's a matter of preference. They would probably have to be fabricated since I think the look would be best with the 1st tip inset like stock exhaust and the second tip slightly kicked out and a couple inches shorter. From the back, it would look kinda like the pic above. But with rolled, stainless tips.

Also this would be something different from the GT500 rear bumper conversion. I love the dual tips but this would be something to set the @$$ apart in the crowd.

Anybody with metal work experience wanna weigh in? Anybody think it would be too expensive to get done?

I'm going to have to pass on those. Looks like something a kid put together in a high school shop class.

To keep the bumper how it is I think you would have to go mid muffler and separate it where the muffler should be. Not much room if you leave the mufflers after the axle.

Not a fan of extra tips that are not functional. that said any muffler shop could give you the extra tips where you want it in about an hour, they like have extra tips in stock.
