Anyone with vanguard exhaust? Quad tips?

Hey guys,

Thought about this for a while and I change my mind every time. Anyway, can anybody chime in on vanguard exhaust setup and swapping the tips out to quads. I also have the m tec bumper and would probably have to cut the diffuser. Any information, or direction will help. Thanks in advance.

step 1: buy vanguard exhaust
step 2: buy quads, cyba has good ones
step 3: find local shop to install, your diffusor would need to be trimmed or you could buy an aftermarket quad style
step 4: ???
step 5: profit

ltmw has done 2 or 3 of them using the m3 vanguard tips. i thought about putting cyba quads on my old vanguard but the inlet diameter of cyba tips is 2.25 while vanguard tips use tips with a diameter of at least 2.5

Go look at a E9x with quads and that's how it'll look.

I already have the vanguard exhaust I just wanted to see what the best way would be to install quads. I have to get some work done at LT, I guess I could just ask them while I am there. Thanks anyway.

Even if the inlet sizes are off... would I still be able to weld cyba tips onto the vanguard?
