Well I know I need a new tip and I know I need to have something welded in, does anyone know how far back that 'double walled' stuff goes?

You should be abeal to tel if you look at it. The tip on my Magnaflow system is double walled and you can see where the double wall ends or starts just before the tip about 6 to 8 inches. The double wall should be thicker than the rest of the pipe. Maybe that helped.

Just an update, talked to MBRP on the phone yesterday, they are shipping me a brand new tip (their new designed one) and a piece of 2-1/4" pipe to allow me to cut the old one off, extend and mount the new tip. Customer service at MBRP +++++

Yep for free, and I was telling the truth obviously about the tip being bent in shipping but I was quite shocked cause I basically said on the phone, is there anyway I can buy another tip off you guys and they straight out said, no we'll just send you one. I did tell them that I am a 'heavy user' of ff.com and have had my car in shows (which I have) but either way, I told him that afterwards, after Eric said he would send me the tip as well as the extra pipe.

All in all, I am extremely impressed with MBRP....

Sorry I forgot the topic---I went with the magnaflow kit and the small double wall rear pipe. It fit with NO worrys and the tip is large but not even close to the rice/grapefruit shooter typet he sound is amazing and the perf.is ---Lets say wow.

^^^^^^ that has nothing to do with what I posted, funny cause you said you forgot the topic and then posted about something different then I was talking about.

Anyway, Magnaflow has one of the better looking tips out there.

Will post pics on here when I get the new tip on, before with the old tip and after pics.... probably a good week or so from now.
