Default Exhaust extensions?

htt p://

Just a thought...would extended exhaust tips enhance the appearance of our cars? I rolled up some aluminum sheet to make some fake pipes, and added 2.5 inches in length to the stock exhaust pipe tips. What do you think?

I like it. I imagine it will look better once the carbon deposits on the inside, and the pipes tarnish with grime.

This is just a mock-up to see how it would look. If I decided to actually make the change, I would weld on stainless steel pipe. I think it draws some attention to the quad pipes because you can see the sides, not just the ends.j

Almost all aftermarket tips are much longer and stick out the back. So yea I'd say they look good but need a larger diameter!

Interesting! I had not noticed that but you are right, significantly greater extension than earlier cars.

I also think the 2011+ wagons got shafted with their exhausts. They are single walled vs the nice double wall the sedans got.

I have been debating on extending my 2012 out some because of noise. On my Titan, I had the tips just past the bumper, and it was relatively quite inside the truck...then I cut holes in my bumper and made the tips sit about 1/2" in, and all of a sudden I had a bad drone and it was louder all around. My SPT on the Subaru sits way in, and I feel like it is probably a cause for the in-cab drone.

That would also explain why the 15s stick out...to make it a more luxurious atmosphere insider the car.

That's really interesting. Makes a ton of sense too. I've ridden in cars with under chassis exhaust outlets and the noise was massive. Getting the sound further behind the car has got to make a difference.
