No issues. Tips are great, best thing I have done to the car. See the pictures in my above reply.
I bought the same tips and they really do look great!! A lot better than in the pics.

If you search on ebay, you can find them for 75 (or even less with best offer) for both sides.
Thanks! I was worried about the fitment. 3.5 outlet looks like a tight fit. I want to make sure it doesn't melt the diffuser

It is a tight fit, only about 3/16" side to side clearance but I've been running the same tips for a couple months with no issues. The tips get pretty warm but as long as you are not in contact with the diffuser there should be no problems

I was under the impression that 400 was about what it costs to have it done at a shop, if you bring in your own tips. I agree that his time is worth something, but at the shop you get a guaranteed fit, just the way you want it--at the same price. Am I mistaken on the exhaust shop price?
I bought tips from eBay for $109.

My local muffler shop did the muffler delete for $150.

Worked out pretty good.

The car sounds incredible, my shifts are better, and I have absolutely no regrets.

Thanks for everyone's feedback here! I decided to do it with the same tips that kmharvs33 used in his posts. It was about $75 for the tips shipped and $140 for labor. I've created a pre and post-muffler delete comparison video for anyone who's interested in this mod.

Damn... This sounds really really nice! Can i ask is your exhaust system stock? Everything except mufflers? You just deleted the mufflers? I had mine done "muffler delete" we just emptied out rear boxes (muffler) and put a straight pipe through it and it sounds the same :( actually maybe 5% louder when reving but stock really :(

Here's mine with 3.5 Vibrant tips. As long as the tips have minimal gap between each other, 3.5in will fit.

Mine sounds completly stock. Maybe a little bit louder but that's minimal. I guess i will cut the whole boxes off (muffler) and make Y tips with stainless steel... I hope it does the trick?

I misread your previous quote. Yes, we removed the whole muffler "boxes" and added a straight pipe that connects to Y-pipes with mufflers attached.

I just picked mine up from the shop an hour ago. I took the Dinan mufflers off and went with straight pipes where the mufflers were with new dual tips (classic muffler delet). It's not my daily driver but if it were I don't think I'd mind. It's louder but only loud if you get into it. Normal slow driving sounds just like the Dinans did before. WOT is just intoxicating now! WOT is Loud but insainly awesome.

I went nuts and bought the evolve headers and cats this morning. Can't wait to hear it then. I'll have em on March 25

Well, i finally got the time to do this job on my beast. Got the whole material, made a simple cut after the resonator and made all the pipes and the finishing elements. Had my friend laser weld me the tips and voila.

The whole thing took me almost half a day but finally it is done, looks great and sound is just brutal! Used T304 for the tips, made them a little bigger then the OEM's are and final polish made them look just awesome..

Will post a pic tommorow...

Found some time to do a pic and a smaller video... This are the tips;


A smaller video of the sound... The beast is a little dirty yes i know but the sound was the point :) planning on doing another set of tips with dual wall + ///M logo cut out + burned :)

The sound is just orgasmic... I am really satisfied with the result of the looks and the sound... Love it while driving... Love the fact that it staid a daily driver until you open up the throttle :)
