So I've never had a car before this, never done an exhaust swap/upgrade and have no clue where to start. That said, I've been considering several options for exhausts, the bb, resonator delete, muffler delete and so on. I've decided based on cost and sound that I want my resonator gone
After I get that removed, I'd like to get exhaust tips. I know of the chrome oem tips as well as the amazon ones, but I was looking for something more like a magnaflow looking (doesn't have to be a specific brand) tip. I'm currently away from my car on vacation, so a couple of these questions I'd normally be able to answer so here we go:
1.) Will the tips affect the sound?
2.) How much room (how deep?) do I have for tips, in other words, how long can the tips be?
3.) What size tip am I looking for? I know some flare out, so dimensions of the actual stock pipes as well as the gap in the rear bumper where they come out would be appreciated.
-I have my eye on a set of 3.5 inch magnaflow tips that have the ends (where they meet the pipe) that are 2.5 inches. Other than the width of the bumper opening, my other problem refers to my second question, these tips are 16 inches long and I'm thinking that'll be too long.
4.) Can anyone recommend a tip? Magnaflow, etc. Like I said, brand isn't that important but magna's look nice to me-preferably something that doesn't HAVE to be welded on. I would like angled tips (don't know what they're called, but the stock pipes are angled and that's the look I want) and would also like to stagger them (don't assume that would matter, but I'll post that info anyway).
Hopefully this thread can help others as well, thanks for your help!
