I'd say 4".....they won't look quite as big as you think

3.5 is about right, 4 inch are to big for the cutouts on the 99-04 GT, the 03/04 cobra cut outs are bigger and look better with 4 inch tips though.

Re: 3.5 inch or 4 inch tips?

Im not a huge fan of the SLP sound myself, i have flowmasters now but will be swapping in some Spintechs, Magnaflow performance with a pissed off chamberd sound.

I've thought about 40 series flows. But I'm stuck between the flows and slp now.
