Exhaust tips questions.

Does anyone know what the inlet diameter and outlet diameter on stock exhaust tips are? I can't stand the rolled tips and would like to purchase something different. I like the style tips used on the Corksport but only looking for tips.

Are they 2 1/4 inlet?

Just a small tip... If you use Eagle One NEVR DULL polish on the OE tips they come out looking gorgeous. From factory they are a bit dull.

Understand that, I use it on all my cars. I'm just not a fan of the design.

Lol I've been wondering this since day 1. They made these great cutouts in the rear fender for larger tips, and put these tiny little exhaust in it.

All I know is that the OEM tips are welded on and would require cutting, which is what has made me hesitant to replace them as I am not a skilled mechanic

What about bolt-on tips?

They'd have to be very long tips then. The tips that are currently on the car go in quite a bit before they're secured (from what I remember looking at them once). I'm sure there's something that can be done with some machinery skills, but i'm a computer guy and don't have the tools or talent to get into a project like that (as simple as it is) without help haha.

LOL I got a great shop that can do it locally for cheap, I just want to know what the inlet size is. I found a nice set of 2 1/4 inch inlet but 4" tips... not sure if that would look bad or not. I was thinking a 3" tip. Not sure if the 2 1/4 inch is the right size or not.

Ok so for a Tip all you have to do is make sure it fits and weld it correct? Nothing to crazy I guess. Make sure its lined up and as far out/in as you want it. Even if the weld job looks crappy not many will see it.

3" would fit fine underneath the car. The first thing I did when I got my car was chop off the old exhaust tips and had welded on new 3" tips. It looked nice to me and you couldn't tell that I had change the tips out. That was before I got my RB exhaust. Locally it was done for 40 dollars, 20 dollars for each tip and took about 30 minutes maybe even less
