I'm gona try and rotate my tips so they aim away from each other.
I'm also looking for some kind of exhaust tip that can reduce the bark.
Since my last post Ive added appox. 18" tips that are 45*degree, , i cut my old tips off and slipped these on, The exhaust now terminates just past the bumper, the tips are square not slash cut and angle away from each other, you can not see down into the pipe as before. the sound change is significant
with this very simple change, tone is about the same, Pretty throaty, but over all volume is down a good amount, i don't need to have the stereo turned up near as much, conversation with a passenger is no longer strained.
Still barks good when i punch it.
