    Soooo today I messed around with some plastic mesh I bought at joans fabric, only spent 5 bucks, so I decided to make saleen borla machine gun tips, also used them in my side scoops, what do you guys think? the tips are a test if it works ill buy some borla tips and wrap them in the mesh again

    The Saleen/Borla tips are my favorite of all time. I have the Borla exhaust on my 96 and was looking for something to use. I found sheets of perforated steel on eBay that would look good.

    I don't know how that mesh will work on the exhaust if it gets warm, might melt maybe.
