Single Wall vs Double Wall Exhaust Tips – What’s the difference?

We sell a lot of exhaust systems and while most of them have tips that you can’t change, some do give you the ability to choose. One of the most popular options is the single wall exhaust tip vs the double wall exhaust tip.

We get a lot of questions on the differences between these two, so we decided to create this post to show you the two styles next to each other, as well as explain some of the differences between the two.

Single Wall exhaust tips simply mean that the exhaust tip is a single piece of rounded metal. This makes the tip look thinner than a double wall.

Double wall exhaust tips have another layer to them to and makes the tip look a bit more chunky and smooth. You can see the differences below.

There is no performance difference between the two tips and we haven’t found that one lasts longer than the other. The only difference really on single wall vs double wall tips is the appearance. It’s a personal preference.

2021 Ford Bronco! Coming to the Detroit Auto Show

The Ford Bronco is back – and it’s baaaaddd!!

Rumor is that Ford is going to debut the 2021 Ford Bronco at the Detroit Auto show and we couldn’t be more excited. We feel that with Ford putting it’s effort into trucks and SUV’s that this is going to be a big reveal and a really cool truck.

From the renderings, the Ford Bronco looks to be available as a 2 door or a 4 door, almost resembling a mix between a Jeep Wrangler and a Toyota FJ Cruiser.

We don’t have much info yet on the powertrain so we’re not sure on horsepower and torque, but we suspect it will have the Ford Rangers 2.3L 4 Cylinder Ecoboost Turbo or the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 from the F150, possibly as an upgrade. Expect it to be 4×4.

New Nissan Z reported to have 400HP and Nismo to have 500HP with a retro design

The Nissan 370Z has been around for a long time with no updates. Nissan has been known lately to keep such cars as the 370Z and GT-R the same year over year with small tweaks. Considering Nissan had a big sales drop in 2019 over the previous year, Nissan is really under pressure to release something new and updated that is going to catch enthusiasts attention and bring people back to the brand.

Reports show that the next Nissan Z car will sport a Twin Turbo V6 from the Infiniti 3.0L Q50 and Q60 Red Sport. This his going to be a big win for enthusiasts as those motors have proven to be great power plants that can create a lot of power over the stock configuration. These engines produce around 400hp.

There will also be a Nismo version that is said to have 500HP and that is going to likely be from the same motor with different tuning and likely a freer flowing exhaust and intake.

There are also reports that it will have a unique retro look, so we’re going to keep our eyes open for that as it looks to follow the retro remakes of the latest Mustangs, Camaro and Challenger models that is making them more popular than ever.

Cheapest E46 M3 Section 2 Exhaust? Check out Manzo!

There are plenty of “cheap” parts on the market, but some are cheap and good quality while others are cheap and don’t fit or don’t last long.

Today we’re going to talk about the Manzo Section 2 Exhaust for the BMW E46 M3 that we sell on our site. This has 2.5″ piping, and replaces the factory dual pipe section 2, giving your car a bit of weight reduction and adding some noise.

The factory OEM section 2 has a muffler/resonator there that is removed, and that’s where much of the noise increase comes from.

Check out the video above and see for yourself, for the price this Section 2 just can’t be beat!

Enkei NT03+m BMW E46 M3 18×10 +25 Square

I asked around on Facebook to see if anyone had any wheels for sale for an E46 M3 and I got a bunch of comments. One in particular caught my eye – Enkei NT03+m in an 18×10 +25 square set up. I was intrigued because these aren’t that common on these cars and I wanted something a little different as my last E46 M3 had APEX ARC8 and I didn’t want the same wheels again. I replied to him, he sent me some photos and then I asked him how much.

$500

I said $500 for all 4? He confirmed.

I jumped on the deal. Now the thing is, the wheels aren’t perfect. You can see in the video there’s some curb rash, they’ll require some extra love to get super clean, but even after spending $100-150 to fix the curb rash, it’s still a great deal on these wheels.

Now I just need to order some tires and get them mounted and installed. Check the video to see how these look mocked up on the car and you can see how aggressive an 18×10 +25 setup is in the front of an E46 M3. These won’t have any issue fitting in the rear, but fronts will need a lot of camber.

Top Speed Exhaust – BMW E46 M3 – Install DIY and Sound Clip

I was super excited to make this video because I’m just not a fan of how a performance car sounds with a stock exhaust. I can’t think of one car that sounds worse with an aftermarket exhaust, no matter supercar or not. So when our Top Speed Pro 1 Exhaust came for our 2005 BMW E46 M3, I was super excited to get it installed!

I had some set backs during the install, such as the battery dying, but all in all the install was smooth, the fitment was excellent, and the fit and finish of the exhaust, especially for the price, was awesome.

This exhaust is definitely on the louder side. If you are going to also replace the Section 1, Section 2 and maybe even headers, this exhaust is going to almost sound straight piped, so watch out ­čÖé

I do have a few tricks up my sleeve to quiet the exhaust down. Stay tuned for future videos, and subscribe to us on YouTube to follow along on the build!
