Largest exhaust tips 12LFX?

Basically what the title says, looking into getting an exhaust system installed today when the sun comes up, was wondering what is the largest tip that would fit without any melting to the diffuser or cause any malfunctions etc? I have seen on a few camaros the 5 inch tip through flowmaster, but i have only seen it on the V8's, are the holes of the diffusers the same size on the v8 and v6s?


Thanks in advance!

I would think most would agree that 4" fills up the stock diffuser nicely.

It's quite an increase from stock with about 1/4" to spare.

Do you know where I could see pics of the 4 " tips on a V6? I came across some beautiful 4.5" tips, seems like these wouldn't fit though correct, unless i was to get the V8 diffuser?

Thanks

That does look awesome man, I was either going to go with a 4.5" tip or a 5" tip, but im trying to get a definite answer on fitment of the V6 diffuser.. I see you have the V8 and they are the only camaro's i've seen with tips larger then 4" ... Looking to get a definite answer; Do I need to upgrade to the V8 rear diffuser to fit tips larger then 4" ?

Thanks

You have a V8 also, correct? I'm wanting to go with 4.5" tips, but I don't know if there will be fitment issues with the V6 diffuser... I have a 12 LT M6 and, the main thing i'm trying to figure out at this point is what are the absolutely largest tips you can fit in the V6 diffuser holes without any issues.

If I didn't go for the quad tips I would have gone with what you are trying to do OP. I remember reading somewhere a while back saying that 5" tips do not fit the V6 stock diffuser. Can anyone confirm? I would also like the know the max size.

Guess we can't get a definite answer on the largest exhaust tip size for the V6 diffuser bud, haha...

There's your answer. Or you could just measure the opening. Call me crazy.
