It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

I LOL'd too. FYI, titanium will change blue/purple at around 800F. Since your Vanguard tips are most likely stainless steel....good luck

You can always just buy replacement titanium burnt tips. Do you know your inlet diameter? Also, is your exhaust dual or quad? Depending on these i may have a place for you to get the tips.
