Exhaust Tips and Tricks [/align]
Subjective style and sound
[align=center][/align][align=center][/align][align=center]Exhaust tips are one of those items that bridge the gap between the two worlds of automotive performance and visual style. What makes exhaust tips unique is that along with adding a visual finishing touch to the exhaust system and vehicle, they also provide an aural punctuation. The shape and construction of the exhaust tips affect the overall tone of the exhaust note, and can affect exhaust flow as well. The other aspect of exhaust tips is that like a set of wheels, they are an entirely subjective finishing touch to the exhaust system of a car, truck, SUV, or station wagon. [/align][align=center][/align][align=center]One person's idea of the ultimate exhaust tip is another's idea of an automotive abomination. As a result of the millions of different people in this world who drive motor vehicles, there is a bewildering array of exhaust tips available. Tapered to trumpet. Mellow to megaphone. Single. Dual. Triple. Quadruple. Square. Round. Oval. Even tips molded into the shape of the Chevrolet "bowtie" are remarkably easy to acquire. The list goes on and on. Everything from basic single wall tapered tips to triple wall lit-up-from-the-inside by different colored neon monster tips are all a phone call, mouse click, or trip to the store away from being bolted up or welded onto any vehicle in no time.

Style Council
[align=center][/align][align=center]While exhaust tips are indeed one of the most subjective style points of any vehicle, there are still a few guidelines to follow when considering a tip change. If over-the-top is your style, then by all means get your hands on the biggest and loudest. No holds barred. If subtlety is your strongpoint, you must be careful not to tip the scales. Following the general direction of bodyline and predominant shape of the vehicle and mounting flush with the rear valance can add subtle yet unique style. Shape is also important. A swooping car with a great number of curves is not visually well served by square tips that extend beyond the curved valance. And so on. If you're a purist then stick with the classics, or go with what was the predominant style of the time. A period-correct upturned "stinger" exhaust tip looks right at home on a '70s-era Volkswagen Baja Bug, whereas it would look downright goofy on a '90s-era Corvette. [/align][align=center][/align][align=center][b]Finish and construction are also important considerations. Chrome finish exhaust t

I really don't like the tips on newer trucks, especially on the Chevy/GMC's you can see a space between the tips and pipe.

These are what I really like...

Someday I want to take one an older V8 and run some custom headers up through the back of the hood and have them converge right in front of the A pillar and run the pipe up the pillar and have them each end flush with the roof...

Or maybe have the open headers coming out the side where those Buick port holes are.

I like the traditional look for newer cars round or ovalish chrome. Nice cuts out in the bumper left and right and they absolutly have to be duals. I love semitry (sp?).
