Don't know if they'll be any change in the sound. I'm doing it for appearance. Anyway, I don't have a muffler or resonators, the turbo handles all that.

Re: 5" exhaust tips

Finally got my Jeep back late this afternoon and the install is done. The guy was complaining this was the hardest tip job he's done in all his years of experience He stayed with his original quote though

Before - 4" magnaflow tips

After - 5" TR tips (where that leg come from)?


They stick out 1 3/8" from the bumper at the top

Re: 5" exhaust tips

I'll have to work on audio clips. I should have done a comparison of a before and after sound of the exhaust tips....I'd like to think they're louder now, but, will never know.... It's louder than stock anyways.

I only wanted 1" sticking out at the most, instead of 1 3/8". I'll post a pic tomorrow from underneath and how he fabbed it. He told me a couple times about not wanting to cut off anymore pipe coming from the turbo......????
