    i was thinking about painting my tailpipes black, ive seen it on a fox with flat black pipes and thought it looked pretty cool. What do you guys think? Flat black or glossy black?

    Those are stock tips but they look kind of black :dunno:.........................and really small tires. :-[

    The tips have since been replaced with 3 1/2 " SLPs. :boink:

    ive neevr seen spray painted tailpipes...the paint would burn off and smell bad...but i know they make 'black chrome' tailpipes that looks pretty sweet...especially on darker colored cars

    Far from it bro. Your tailpipes hardly get hot at all.

    Hell yeah. I put it on about a month ago and half only been through half a tank of gas since. Damn snow sucks. :rant:

    I'm trying to get a little video together but can't even drive it yet. It honestly is not even close to being too loud but still is loud between 2200-2600 rpms.

    I'll see if I can upload a little clip.
