Now Keith can listen to the sweet sound of your exhaust when you whip him again

Can you control how far in or out the tips are mounted?

Do you use the OEM actuator valves?

Yes and yes. I messed with them a little today...they slip over the pipes and it appears that you can adjust them.

Thanks, every picture I've seen have the tips sticking out too far.

Definitely want to read what you think after the install.

Keith says he wants a rematch with spray this time. He thinks you were juicing it when you raced him last Saturday. He says even with an expensive exhaust he'll whip you this time.
