    You'd prefer less flexibility?

    I prefer simple, clean setups.

    Either you like an exhaust or you don't, don't waffle and add complexity/cost with valves and gizmos.

    Well here is the answer to your burning question. 3 dual wall tips, because 2 tips are gross and single wall looks cheap.

    Is there a chance of an anodized black version? Or an optional carbon tip add on?

    all of the valved exhausts sound like garbage or much much louder garbage.

    It would add cost, unsure at this point.

    Nice work lads!

    One thing to mention, with other tri tip designs on the market, some of them have the exhaust flow come out the back uneven, where one them will have more smoke than the others, hope this is also checked out. Also some of the tips protrude out too far or too early, I hope other would agree that the stock flush look would be nice.

    That's a great point. Hoping that the pipes could be flush with the rear diffuser (i.e. no poke).

    Thanks again 27won!

    As far as how much the tips stick out the back, i actually would prefer more than stock. You cant even see the exhaust at all from a side angle. So a little further out than factory would be nice.
