>X< I like big tips and i can not lie :quads content >X<

Quad thrusters installed yesterday, i have effectively doubled my horsepower by increasing the number of exhaust outlets thus allowing the engine 2 burn much more fuel and air















4 anyone planning 2 do this, i have essentially re routed the right pipe from the second resonator , turned it 90* and run it directly behind the differential. the exhaust hanger is secured to one of the bolts holding the evap vacuum can on.

Nice work. Maybe you could trim the diffuser so they can sit higher and more flush, I think that would look great.

I read somewhere that cinder blocks can crumble so you shouldn't use them to support your car. Just don't wanna see anyone get hurt!

Love the tips! I'd like to see them in a bit more, and closer to the bumper.... With that, PERFECT!

too big for the cutouts! you should have cut them further and mounted higher, or gone with smaller tips.

or just forgot about quad altogether

i could have gotten the drivers side tips up higher, they actually fit the cutout perfictly, but i would have had 2 angle the passenger side ones up more, they already have a slight angle to them.quads r notoriously hard 2 do on the e46 cuz of the battery box, tire well, and other crap under there. im satisfied 4 now.

meh... sorry but I agree with everyone... they are way too low. smaller tips may allow you to raise them too. Those look too large

or smaller tips
