    The bassani 3 inch tips on my catback aren't cutting the mustard anymore. I see some on the internet but there different lengths like 12 inches.. 18 inches... 24 inches. I want 3.5 outlet for sure but not sure what length. I don't want short and stubby and don't want sticking out way past the bumper.

    IMO they should be as long as you can get under the car.

    Ferocious has the right idea, if you want them to go the full length from the bumper to the tire then just measure, it's pretty far.

    That's what I was thinking. From the side view I hate seeing where it's been reduced to clamp to the original tailpipe

    I had SLPS tips welded on my old catback and instead of clamping i could see the weld marks/burns from the side. I always hated that. Going to grab the measuring tape and see what i like.

    Thanks

    i got 10" long 3.5" outlet ready to be welded but i have a saleen rear so the valence covers the welding marks. Most aftermarket catbacks have 2.5" inlet and stock is 2.25"
