Hell yeah! STRAIGHT PIPES from the factory!!! Wish we coulda pulled that off!mm_omega2 said:the tips on those are probably ...3"-4" the mufflers are most likely about 5"-6". Myself, I just don't like to be able to see the muffler(s).
Just so you have a better idea of idea of what Iw as talking about with single exhaust, dual tips (for those that may not know) here are some pics of the stock srt exhaust.

I swear that term gets thrown around way too much and by people that have no idea about what is and isn't.
Why do they put it on he asks....a specific reason other than looks, I'm not sure.
Compare performance vehicles from the last 40-50 years or so....name performance vehicles that had two tailpipes to those with only one, it just looks better.
Camaro's and T/A's fell into this as well with having a single exhaust pipe and splitting at the rear into dual (outlets).
Dual exhaust is two exhaust pipes seperated from each other from the engine to the rear....except for the occasional 'X' or 'H' pipe thrown in. One exhaust pipe on one header. One muffler for each pipe.
SRT/Cobalt/most other 4cyl are single exhaust with dual exhaust 'tips' at the rear of the car.
Something that may be considered rice would be those with a new rear bodykit with spots for two exhaust tips but the vehicle only has one.
Probably not, I'm pretty sure that if Modern makes a dual tip exhaust for your car, that it would probably be a functional dual tip exhaust. Meaning, steam should be coming out of both tips. Modern usually do a good job in making their parts, so I wouldn't worry about it.bullitzx2 said:thts wht i was wondering if the second tip would just be pure cosmetic and not have any steam coming out of it while the other did in the cold? would this be the case for the cobalt and the modern performance exhaust?
Yeahm but I am glad I got rid of the stock anyway...the tips were jsut too smal for the cutouts in the bumper, the 4" tips I have now fill out the holes and looks a lot better. Along with better flow and a better exhaust note to boot.JDMCivic said:Omega, I have never seen any pics of the SRT4 exhaust before. That is nucking futs.
You have more cubic inches in your exhaust tips then you do in your motor!mm_omega2 said:Yeahm but I am glad I got rid of the stock anyway...the tips were jsut too smal for the cutouts in the bumper, the 4" tips I have now fill out the holes and looks a lot better.

That exhaust takes about 30 minutes to change out, old out new in and driving. That is knucking futs
