Mine are Ansa 2.5" in 3.5" out, definitely not short. I think the car would be too loud without them. Sounds great with them. Everyone who's been in my car has commented on how awesome the exhaust sounds.

muffler. Ask an independent 3rd party...I possibly have the coolest sounding 4-cylinder on earth supported by consistently awesome reactions. Its a touch annoying on road trips, and talking on the cell-phone is a challenge though.

I challenge you both, with my cowl induction and ported compressor housing. Nyeah.
I like the Ansa tips, they just do not have one with a 3" inlet, and I am not sure I want to run a reducer just for the tip.

I would not want to reduce either. I'm sure if you google resonated exhaust tips, you'll find some you like. I did that before...

Yeah I tired the google thing too and I keep turning up the same sources. I am going to try ebay and jeg's next. I already looked at Summit. Monza also has some nice compact tips but do not make one with a 3" inlet.

Ahh, there we go. Hooker, although an old school name, makes one with a 3" inlet. Not sure if 10" will fit lengthwise (that is what she said).

There are tons of tips on ebay- find a 3.5" you like, chop it off at the taper so it'll slide over the 3" exhaust and tack it in place.

Well I want a resonating tip that is short, like less than 10" so I can fit it on the existing enthuza tail pipe (cutting it down to the bend) and not have it stick a mile out of the bumper. Those seem to be harder to find.

Ahhh- ok. Yes, I'm in a similar situation - I think with my magna since it's angled and the offset exit hole is very close to the bumper exit. Your's like this?

Yeah pretty much. The muffler is not angled but I do not have much more space to work with than what you show above. So far the Hooker is the only thing I have found in a 3" inlet that comes close to working. The Monza would be even better (it is shorter) but they do not have a 3" inlet option.

/\ he he
He's got some resonated tubes that can be sectioned to you desired length and inlet. They aren't tunable, but scrap is scrap.
