Default Exhaust Tip Brands (I'm Lost)

Hey guys. I'm considering getting exhaust tips for my 94 Green SSE and I'm wondering about brands. Hedman looks to be pretty nice, but I'm REALLY new to cars in general and don't really know much. Anyone had success or like other brands?

Also I've got my stock pipes still and I'm wondering what inlet/outlet/length I need when I order them or get them at the local auto shop. I'm really confused and I can't seem to find these sizes in any of the Bonnie books I have. Can anyone help? Or tell me how to measure?

Ben

i used monza tips, duel. all you have to do is measure the opening on the bumpers, depending on the type of muffler you use just mease the distincts. the only that i don't like about the tips that i have is that they have service rust on the inside but the chrome is nice still on the outside.

Guru, I wouldn't worry too much about brand name if you like the styling... I mean, it'* a piece of metal. You should definitely consider stainless steel tips, as opposed to chrome. Stainless will cost you more, but they will not rust and will last much longer. Your pipe size is most like likely 2.25" (someone correct me if I'm wrong), and you may need to have a muffler shop cut off your stock tips and weld on the new ones. It shouldn't cost you much for the labor, depending on the shop... call around the check prices. Happy shopping!

Fantastic guys. Scotty, I got 2.25" on the measurement so you're spot on. I think I may go for the Hedman tips, they look to be very nice. Though I'm gonna do some looking around at local shops. Definitely gonna go stainless with it, thanks again guys.

With any luck, yes. I'm currently out of a job as my old place of work kinda screwed me over after getting back for the summer from college. If I upgrade the exhaust, what should I look into?
