u can't really tell in the pic, but an inch would be way to much gap.
i can't get my finger in between, but they are not touching.
unless its a new revision, with tips spread. also if u would post a pic
we can definately compare.

here is a sound clip of the Millteks... what I like about them so much is they give you a low rumble at idle and low revs, but don't make a racket at higher revs... the engine makes more sound than the exhaust around 5k rpm.

well sound im not worried about now. im sure it sounds good. either way i wanted a not too loud exhaust so this was the only choice plus they are a good manufacturer.
im worried about my 3/4 in gap between my two tips being abnormally big.
(pics later today)

I want to say that the gap is correct. they arent directly lined up together
congrat on the purchase http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
