    Double Wall Vs Single Wall Exhaust Tip

    Hey

    I am in the process of getting a catback exhaust installed NOW as I type.

    My questions is what is the difference between a double wall or single wall tip and does it make a performance difference??

    I am battling between some regular silverline tips or more expensive borla tips.

    None whatsoever. Looks only. It's merely a "tip within a tip"- Borla calls it a "phantom" tip. Purely asthetic.

    Dan said it.

    Personally I like the "Single Wall" if that's how you refer to it. Nothing beats straight chrome pipes with a 45º angle cut.

    I love the Borla system. It sounds good (not loud) and the tips looks sweet. I'm not partial to the trubendz look.

    angle cut tips are ugly. they look like a hacked-off pipe.
    tips with rolled edges are the way to go.

    The outside wall of my double wall exhaust tips ( borla rolled) dont get hot. Thic could be good if your exhaust tip sits close to the bumper and or bodykit. You might get less heat damage to the paint and kit.

    Lol. You know there's only one way you could know that.

    I'll take your word on it though.
