Sounds like an interesting project! Can't wait to see some more pics from different angles. You wouldn't have happened to take any pics while the mod was being done, did you? Very keen to see the how it was done. Some photos from underneath would be awesome to give an idea about how much of a bend we are talking about here.

Also, how did you manage the diameter difference between the new tips and the blackbox without a reducer? My understanding is that the blackbox pipes where the tips rivet/bolt onto are 75mm whereas these tips are 55mm?

The tips look awesome in pictures and yours is the only car I have seem them on so far!

Cheers,
A

I assume youasking about the size of standard OEM tips!? They are 185mm long as far as I remember. They double walled , so look narower ). Some people cut the edge of the tips(~3mm) and second internal skin falls off,that gives tips wider look(76mm).
As mentioned before TGS are 76mm diameter.You can buy straight/slush cut in standard length(as per website links) or order custom sizes(done on the check out ;in comments box you put your desired additional measurements).
