Default WS6 - Dual Exhaust Tips Questions

Hey guys,

As some of you know I'm going to look at an '01 WS6 next week that I put a deposit on. True to form, I'm already thinking about things I want to do to the car and I haven't even bought it yet!!!

Anyway...So questions for you guys on dual exhaust tips.

- Is there a decent thread that one of you guys may have "book marked" that shows how different types of aftermarket dual tips look on a WS6 car?

- Can any of you guys give a recommendation as to a decent set of dual tips? I'm looking for chrome or polished stainless.

- How is the factory single exhaust tip installed? How do the after market tips install.

Thanks!!
Dan

I recently ordered a set of Corsa Clone tips from 6LITEREATER. I have not put them on the car yet as I am waiting for TSP to ship the exhaust but the pics I have seen look great. There are some pics on the page that show them on cars. I optioned for the 4" OD and they are going to fill up the exhaust area nicely.

Here are the tips:

You have to buy them with their catback unless you can find someone that is selling theirs. Someone here was selling them not long ago...they may still have them.

If you dont want to buy an entire exhaust, cut and put a $10 turn-down on your stock system and dummy mount some quad tips - mine are the 4" clones from 6LE

The stock WS6 tips do not fill the bumper opening properly. The Corsa clones fill the space perfectly. Dual/dual staggered slashed cut are the ones.

What'd you use to mount them? My tips are 3" while my exhaust is 2.5". Wouldn't mind cutting the ends off and mounting the new ones.

8" L-brackets from Home Depot, some nuts and bolts, four u-clamps, and two short pieces of exhaust tubing

You have to drill some holes and align them but the pics show pretty much how its done. Directly above the openings in the bumper cover are some studs that the brackets mount to

Corsa Clones. Check out ssclones.com
Just bought some off him a couple of weeks ago. Looking forward to getting them mounted. I went with 4" From the pic's I've seen online here they should fill in the space nicely.
