Default Which exhaust tips?

Which tips look the best on our car, that aren't really expensive? Do tips change the sound of the exhaust? If so, which tips give the best sound for deep rumble?


thanks,

Rob

Check out BonneAlien'* car. He has some nice tips.

I know you can by some tips that provide some sound, but for the most part, its all about looks.

I think i'm gonna do the quad angled tips like Jim W, Alien, and AZ.

Tips look fine without cutouts...

I'm looking at these when I get my exhaust system.




Sorry I can't find a better picture.

I'm not sure if they fit. They are 2x6 and are overall 10 inches. With a 2 1/2 inlet. Stainless Steel. I found them online for 25 bucks.

They are camaro tips. Or atleast the style. They are Ansa TK7840.

Edit: They look close to stock so they'll be sorta stealthy. But if I got with a DP ram air hood...well i don't need stealth anymore lol.
