Best Looking Exhaust Tips

I'm so knee deep in trouble with the OCD wrench hole...put the car on a jack, start eyeballing and then a long laundry list of things come up


Fast forward to this threads question
On my Dinan exhaust, with tips welded and 4.6is covers put on, IMO, I've always loved this look.

One of the exhaust is starting to develop a rust off the weld, so off to the shop it goes to get the tips cut off , reweld new tips or new tips and 4.6 covers. I'm leaning on the same 4.6is covers for that Stock look but shoot some alternative options if ya want.

Dual walled stainless steel tips work for me. I went with Yonaka 3.5" tips

I'm with you on the 4.6IS stock covers. I've never thought anything looked better, especially around the well-defined bumper cut-outs for these tips.

Dual walled stainless tips are my favorite. The single walled Dinan ones on Red are nice, but only because they are Dinan and stick out in that specifically Dinan way. My favorite are still something like yours OB.

Overboost, the close-up is great. Additionally, would you please kindly show different angle views of your exhaust tips? I've always liked it. I'm curious what it really looks like in other perspectives other than what your signature pic portrays, e.g. sideways etc. Probably a video if it's not too much trouble I dig those tips.

On the E53 I love the Dinan single walled tips. On other vehicles I prefer dual walled. I think the factory ovals look goofy. I really like Happy's exhaust because it reminds me of my e90 335 and hints at a boosted 6 under the hood.

Mine are dual walled as well. I felt they looked classier than the aftermarket single walled tips that were available at the time.

Nolimite, that is the exact reason I went single outlet, versus dual. Because itís a I6 3.0.

The e90's are dual walled, they look identical (except for maybe the size).

I've done quite a bit of searching for tips for my Z32 and have found that vibrant and believe it or not OBX have the most extensive selection.

OT: Happy, the beast is almost out of surgery so we may have to go terrorize WLH Pkwy soon with some blower whining.

I wanted the tip to totally fill the port for the original exhaust tips, to achieve as close to an OE look as possible.

Iíve used OBX for various parts in the past. I never had a bad experience.

Oh yeah! I hope the wrap up goes smoothly for you. Their definitely gonna hear us coming! LoL..
