Exhaust tip questions

How big should I go? Haha, my exhaust shop has a 5" tip, and he showed it to me today. I was like, "Nah, no thanks man. I drive a Mustang." Then he laughed and said "Oh, I'm sorry, I had no idea."

I have a 2.5" tip right now, right? GT takeoffs. I'm thinking 3" tips would be ok. I don't see me ever getting a GT rear bumper, I want to keep them coming out from the bottom of my V6 bumper.

How long should I get? I know I need long ones, but how long is long enough?

since you have the v6 bumper 2.5-3 inch would be the limit, I would get 20+ inches long regardless unless you like tacky weld marks where it goes down to 2.25

www.rodshopperformance.com is where I got my angle cut 20 inch long 2.5 inch tips and I like them alot. ONLY get stainless but you already know that.

Well, there is nothing smaller than 3" that I can find. Yes, I know SS only. I found 18" long, think that's long enough? Or should I keep searching? I want angle cut.

it was hard for me to find 20 inch long, 18s will work... actually 22-24 is best to get back there to the tire... but not easy to find.

3 inch is as big as I would go, the larger you go the more you alter the angle you will be able to mount them at to keep that weld mark hid, and if you dont angle them up they look like crap.

ahh, **** it. I'll just go to the shop and hold up some tips to my bumper and decide.

They'll have to order what I want anyways.

to me its a smoother look with out the GT bumper, the GT bumper just helps stubby tips blend in good. I love the way the pre 99s are set up with the full polished tips and the LX fox bodies as well.
