Default Chrome, or, Black pipe for my 8 Ball ?

Okay folks, the title of the thread speaks volumes here..... I want to buy the RPW Thor. But, in which finish, I can't decide. Should I continue with the murdered out black look, or should I go with the chrome, against black contrast ? I can't decide.

In my opinion, a chrome two into one on an eight ball looks fantastic. I've seen it on a Vegas and Kingpin.

metricthunder.com is the way to go. Have bought the exact pipe twice off Jim at the best price I could find. I too debated the black versus chrome and went chrome. Figured the contrast would look killer. Don't have to worry about black fading either?(don't know if it would). Haven't got it yet so I cant post any pics for ya.

Also bought S&S intake and pcv w/autotune at a great price! (not on website due to launch of new site coming).

Good Luck!

I think I will go with the chrome, for the contrast, I likr the contrast it has now the the stock exhaust. If I get tired of it, and want black, I can have the heat shields coated.
