That shop is a MESS. Works seems pretty good though. I would definitely see what you could do to get the tips a little more symmetrical in the rear though.

i was thinking about doing that but i didnt think it would look right to have like 10 inches of the bumper cut out on both sides.... like i said i still have many options so im still not sure what im gonna do personally it doesnt bother me idk i assumed it would be worse when we were 1st mocking everything up i almost decided to just say screw it and go with just a dual on the driver side but im glad i didnt i see what you guys are talking about and as of right now im pleased with it lol.... i also kept my stock exhaust just in case

since i have a 330 it dual pipes throughout so what he did was cut both pipes at the resonator and then he routed a single pipe to each side and then put the mangaflow tips on the pipe
