I have had the Larini SE Dual Exhaust for a few years now and wanted a more aggressive and exotic looking exhaust tips. Hence, I replaced the Larini exhaust exits with Perrin 4" slash cut ones - welded. It's not for everyone but I personally like it. I rotated the slash angle sideways to correspond the rear lines.

Before:


After:
The exhaust pipes were lackluster looking, so I sprayed them with Krylon high heat flat black paint.






When stepping on the accelerator, I felt more kicks with my butt-dynometer.

The GTR has slash tips that have a diagonal angle too I believe.

Tell us how long that Krylon endures.

Not being an ass............

That paint wont last, at all. Believe me, I tried it. It looks nice but those tips are way close to your clam you may have a heat problem, just keep an eye on it.

It does look aggressive. I like it.

No problem, thanks. The new tips are in the same positions as the old ones for the past few years with no heat issues. With the rear delete, they should have more room to breathe, literally. I can adjust them a little bit but I'll keep that in mind.
