But he couldnt answer my question on whether or not the resonated tips they sell at pepboys would have the same affect as buying one online from Magnaflow for 100+ bucks.

im so close to getting up and buying a resonated tip from pep boys right now.
Look up Hooker exhaust tips. They should have something that fits your needs just right.

I would think that would be a good size. its a matter of preference at this point. What do you want to see?

I thought tips were just for cosmetic reasons. I don't have one but will get one. The paint on the bedside located near the exhaust is starting to turn colors from the heat. The clear coat is darker in color now, service guy at my local Toyota dealership said a tip should help that problem. Anyone else here with indigo ink pearl having that problem?

i got my tip done for less than i thought. 40 out the door. it's just a slash cut tip..13inche length, 2.5 in. 3.5 out.. sounds really deep now.
i drove into an underground parking lot, and set off a good amount of alarms off. ( that's the only time i'd ever do that ) then i drove past my neighbors mustang and set of his alarm, i didnt know he had an alarm either. i wasn't able to do this before the tip was installed.

Im itching to buy a resonated tip though.. i dont feel satisfied just yet.

the reason I got the NON RESONATED tip is because the guy at the muffler shop said that.. " you don't want a RESONATED TIP on your truck because you have 2.5 piping, and the Inlet of this tip is 3. It won't make a difference unless you had 3 inch piping"

He was a real nice guy, but I think i just went out and burnt some money.

now my question is, couldn't he have made an adapter of some sort and make the tip fit?

Why not just get a 2.5" inlet tip that is resonated?

Not sure if this is your look but.

2.5" inlet. 4" out, rolled/straight, resonated.

Or here's a 2.5" in, dual 3" out, slant, resonated.

They don't do a thing. I've had a tip for the whole 14 years I've owned mine and not a damned difference.
