New Frankenstein dual exhaust

So i got tired of my old "truck looking" exhaust and decided its time to upgrade a bit so i changed out everything.
2.5" piping
A resonator that came off a 2013 srt8 charger
Flowmaster 88 series
2 3.5" rolled magnaflow tips with bumper cutouts

Thanks, i couldn't find any rolled slashed tips at the shop i was installing it at dug around everywhere. I think it sounds nice, it has more of a tuner sound to it now. Ill post a vid once i have a day off work.

I don't think they did its copied directly from the stock exhaust I'll double check tomorrow. Should I have concern?

Just personal annoyance. I hate one piece exhausts as working on things around them can be cramped.

If you wanna do cut outs I don't know if quad tips would fit with the two gromits in the middle of the rear valence plus there's a slight curve to the valence towards the end so a side of the tips would stick out on a quad setup I think. it was a pretty close cut with just single tips on mine. But the only problem I had was finding someone willing to make the cuts in the first place I ended up having to take it home mid install and doing the cuts myself.
