People seem to be turned off because they're not full 3". I don't think it really matters for most people. And IMO they are the best looking tips and one of the best sounds too. So much deeper tone than the Q300 or other common quad tips.

Cruising on the highway shouldn't be an issue. It won't get nearly as hot as even 5-10 minutes on the track. I'd have to think that even if there is an issue, it won't be permanent. The Plasti Dip will probably still just peel off.
Oh, well then crap. Ill just have to make it work, unless I get a random offer for $300+ which is about the lowest I would take.

Well, thanks for putting my worries to rest. I stuffed paper towels in the pipes just to be safe, and its not like the insides wont be covered in soot to mask the lack of plasti dip.

Awesome Rsutton, I am using the PXA now on my alpine system but moving to the PXAH900, had the 750, but looking for more tuning, just trying to figure where to put the controler. It can run off my 910, but not the best option.

Where?
I would take an SPT for $280 no problem, swapping stock even an option! I've been watching here for a while? Anyone in Southern Ontario/Michigan hit me up!

Well, most of the SPT's are listed for close to $500 it seems. You just need to find one and then wait it out until the price drops...

With 25mm spacers the stock studs are completely inside the spacer. They use their own set of nuts, and then the spacers have a separate set of lugs pressed into them.
