Exhaust Tips

Any exhaust companies making exhaust tips to go in the GM GFX (trapezoidal). The round tips look lame in the trapezoidal openings.

I saw Mr. Hendricks Black Camaro the "Black" concept car with the red halos, painted grnd effects and matte hood and well they had removed the stock tips so they were recessed a few inches and you couldn't see this unless you bent all the way down and looked. i figured thats one way of doing it.

I'll be using these tips on mine, but I won't have the GFX.

We have a guy that works with us that has a Lexus 460 and he has the same thing, round exhaust tips on the inside just like the Camaro.

Not sure how this helps, we are looking for the square tips to match the square GFX opening.

Hello all! This was this newbie's biggest concern... I ordered my car May 5th and have been contemplating removing the ground effects from my order just because I can't deal with the cheesy exhaust in an exhaust idea. I saw a new Mazda 6 with the same look today as well. Looks like it is becoming a ridiculous trend. 91Z28350 was close. I just found it thru Google. The website is MBRP, not MBPR. Looks like they have their own catback and x-pipe setup too.
http://www.mbrp.com
Here is their quote... "For those with the RS/SS model, we have a set of tig welded square tips that follow the contour of the skirt opening perfectly."

After looking at the pictures they had, I don't like. Still looks like an exhaust-in-an-exhaust and a older gen Z28 square tip stuck inside. No sure if those silver square inserts are plastic or metal, but if plastic, I would really worry about them melting over a period of time.

sheet metal and some welding looks to be the only option right now plus i think it would look better that way than just having a square tip in side it

And better than the round tip inside it. I agree. Great idea! That's not my field of extpertise so hopefully the performance shop I have my stuff installed at can do that. Seems like the sheet metal would just have to open up as wide as the squares, but not touch them. I figure I'll then be cleaning the pollution off those silver squares more often and I have had thoughts of carbon monoxide floating upwards while idling at red lights. I think I analyze just a little bit too much.

Anyone know the diameter of the stock round exhaust tips on the SS? GMPP performance exhaust round tips are 4.5". I like to find out if they’re the same size as the stock tips.

3.75 on the factory exhaust tip!

Thanks!

Now I just have to wait until someone installs them and creates a video so they can be seen and heard. Hope they sound and look good on the Camaro. I would like to buy the GMPP Air Box, Shorty headers and exhaust so I don't have any warranty problems down the road.

Not a bad idea. You just pay a little more. The GMPP looks very much like the Borla to me, but of course, that's just plain opinion. The service departments can try to argue, but usually anything from the headers on (after the engine) can't be contributed to engine components. That's just been my experience. That's why I may opt for the GM air box as I did on my Suburban because of it being a contributer to the engine is an important part when it comes to warranty and you can't fool them by putting your stock air box back on before having it towed in. I wouldn't be too worried about adding "long tube" headers, x-pipe, and any kind of mufflers. It's all piping after the engine. Of course they won't warranty those parts, but those parts won't break your engine!

Back to the exhaust tips....
I would like to find out what the biggest size tip we can get to go with the GFX! Would be nice to get one big enough to not be seen through the rectangle so when looking in, you are really looking into the exhaust. On the other hand, I don't want any plastic melting. :-(
