well my ms design tail pipes arrived this morning so thought i would give it a bash at fitting them with the aid of my trusty grinding stones and hacksaw,firstly had to buff of the 2 welds holding the sleeve over the original tail pipe to remove it before cutting off 100mm of tailpipe.

Nice job Paul. Tbh, i think this tailpipe kit is quality above and beyond the standard jap junk we see on some cars, i speak from experience of owning one of these dual trims.

As a man i used to know once said, "Look after your pipes, and your pipes will blow smoke........" :LOL:(y)

Does anywhere sell these but as a twin setup? i don't want the car to be loud but would love two tailpipes either side.

think you would need to get it made up martyn as there is only one original pipe coming out the drivers side but the tail pipes do not alter the sound of the exaust

some people go down the route of installing false pipes on one side but on a cougar that would be daft as especially in the cold weather with the steam only coming out one side
