What's the difference between having tips on the exhaust and no tips????

Could someone please explain the difference to me?

Appearance. Tips usually are chrome and give a finished look. No tips just look like the end of the exhaust pipe.

According to Lexus each fake exhaust tip is totally worth like, 10 hp. Totally. That's why that added four fake exhaust tips to the IS-F

not always. depending on the type of tip, they can offer a potential (very minute) gain in performance and sound. but it all depends on the tips themselves and their size, shape, construction, etc.

Tips? More horse power? You gotta explain that. I can't see it. Not measureable or noticeable anyway.

I thought it was related to VTech activation, sometime around 900 MHz?

the corvette essentially has one exhaust pipe (and all fbody's), where's the reasoning behind their extra exhaust tips?

yeah, like I said, it CAN based on the characteristics of the tip. wont be noticeable in the least, but it technically has the capability to add power (or detract)

for instance...



all the tips in this picture are of different sizes, lengths, and shapes. the differences can affect the volumetric efficiency of the exhaust gasses.



then you have tips like these:


that have valves that open and close inside the tip.

then you have tips like this:

that arent doing any but pure looks


then if you take these for example:


the "tip" is 20 some odd inches long.... and compared to the size of the rest of the tubing, it opens up more after the muffler which could enhance the scavenging effects to help draw out gasses.



and then there are some like this:


that have adjustable "tuners" inside the tip that you can restrict or open the exit to change the sound of the exhaust (which would change the flow characteristics and thus have a minute change on power out put)


but like I said, dont go buy exhaust tips looking for power. they CAN add or subtract power based on their design, but it wont be noticeable
