If you are running stock set-up, I would suggest sticking with no larger than a 3"-3.5" tip. I find Summit Racing usually has great deals on tips for our application and super fast shipping. Check out their website for different choices.

What do u consider a stock setup? The pipe size or the mufflers and midpipe?

Stock set-up is being referenced to minimal power adders. If you just opened up your exhaust to breath better, then that really is not a power adder, but closer to stock set-up. If you are pushing over 325 -350hp then I would say go to a 4" OD tailpipe. But for stock hp or close to, you do not want to go too large on your exhaust. Going too large can be a negative to torgue and HP lose instead of gaining torgue and HP. A 2.50" mid-pipe and muffler inlet and outlet and over the axle rear then 3' outlet on the tailpipes, some would go to a 3.5" tailpipes, but I want the most benefit in torgue curves and HP. This has been my years of experience talking, not preference. Preferences do not mean much when giving advice but experience goes a long ways though.

Exhaust tips

I understand you were asking about tips, just thought I would throw this in here for anyone interested. Tips is strictly what you think looks good. A good muffler shop will hold a few up till your happy and weld them for a few bones.

3.5" Magnaflow tailpipes fit PERFECTLY in the New Edge exhaust cutout openings. For a 94-98 car, anything more than a 2.5" tailpipe looks stupid. Dumps are also an option if you are super low or have a panhard bar.

You start getting too low and then you are going to run into serious camber issues. Most camber/caster kits made will only adjust for a max of 2" drop up front. After that, you will be running neg camber which will result in premature tire wear. Not to mention rougher ride characteristics.
