Why Should I Install Aftermarket Exhaust Tips?

As a consensus, car owners pay far more attention to their wheels and engines than they do for the other components. 

Only true blue enthusiasts know the importance a quality exhaust system does to their car. Having a performance exhaust system will not only make your car more powerful, you will also see an increase in efficiency. 

However, a cool shiny exhaust tip will show that you have invested in a high-performance exhaust system. And because it will make your car look more attractive.

OEM exhaust tips are laughably small relative to their cutouts in the rear bumper. A tiny tube peeking out of a large hole is – how do we put it nicely? – lame.

Most aftermarket exhaust systems come with bigger tips. Some, however, utilize the diminutive piece of metal we call a tip. IN that case, what you need is a shiny new exhaust tip to complete the look.

Exhaust tips can be connected to your tailpipe using screws. Some employ joints or clamps. The easiest to install are those that can be inserted in the tailpipe and they fit just like a glove.

There are different kinds of tips to chose from to complete the look of your car.

Single exit exhaust tips with diameters that can accommodate your fist are popular in the JDM car scene. For example, most modified Lancer Evolutions and Toyota Supras have such large single exit exhausts that look like they can shoot golf balls into orbit.

If your car already comes with dual exit exhaust, it will be easy fitting polished tips in each, erm, tip to make your ride look perfect. However, there are twin-exit exhaust tips that you can install on a single exhaust pipe just to make your car look more stylish.

And if you want your car to look extremely powerful and sophisticated at the same time, quad tips are for you. Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG, and Aston Maartin all employ quad-exhausts because it makes the car look more luxurious and more menacing to look at. If you want the same look for your car, you won’t go wrong with quad tips.

There are also many finishes that will make your exhaust tip more stylish. There is the traditional polished tip, or a carbon-fiber sleeved tip, then there is the JDM-style of burnt titanium which coats the exhaust tips will all the colors of the wind … or the rainbow.

Exhaust tips are part of aftermarket high performance exhaust systems which are designed to change the factory fitted exhaust for better performance. Vivid Racing offers everything from exhaust brackets, catbacks, downpipes, exhaust gaskets, exhaust tips, headers, heat shields, midpipes, mufflers, Y-pipes, and much more.
