Exaust Tips

I wanted to get new tips for my accord. I cant really afford an exaust system and I dont really want the car to be loud anyway.

So I was wondering if a set of exaust tips would make any more noise then just the stock?

I was also wondering how far they would actually stick out, I don't want them too much, maybe just a bit further then the stocks.

Something along this line is what im thinking.

The tips won't change anything. The least amount of work you'd have to do is get some new axle-backs. Such as the CL-S mufflers.

you can try some acura TL tips they'll make the rear look a bit better. tips won't make or change the sound of the stock exhaust. if you want a bit of sound try cl-s mufflers, they're not that expensive if you can find a good deal, i've seen some go for $50 for both or so.

here's a pic of the TL tips (sold these to a member here)



here's cls mufflers



if you get cls mufflers just make sure to get them aligned and stuff. easy mod and shouldn't cost more than $50 to install at a muffler shop. i actually prefered the cls mufflers more than the comptechs i had before haha

Or you could select a set of tips, and get them welded onto your stock muffler. With that, you could decide on how much you would like to have them stick out. Also, the shop could cut off the part of your OEM muffler tips that point downward, so you could have a clean, and straight pointing tip on there, without looking too cheap. That was another option for me, as well because I do not want lots of sound. Just do not get the resonated tips, and you will be koo.

nah, really all i want is something that looks good, doesnt make any huge difference on sound, and wont look way out of place.

i think i got a shop thats gonna weld it on. i think taospec answered my main question though. i just didnt want them to stick out too far.

i'm not a fan of cutting up my exhaust system for tips and such. Just get a CL-S muffler, you can always switch back to stock if you get tired of 'em.

they're quiet as hell anyway.

Whats the difference in cutting your tips? If you don't like them your obviously going to want to replace them. What good is there in putting back a factory muffler to replace a CL-S muffler? there probubly almost the same, and sound the same too. They look the same as stock with a tip on them. HEY!! why not just put tips on your factory exhaust??!!

um...the cls muffler does not sound like a stock accord...it sounds a lot better even with the premuffler on.

here's a couple videos i made back then...

Walmarts on the Southeast are better than the ones in Cali. They are bigger and have every dam thing a person needs and wants. And have the good stuff, as well. Not just regular old Target stuff. The ones out here seem like big K-marts, or Targets. Same stuff. And don't even have that many groceries, as I've seen out in the Dirtay-dirtay (south).


Btw, thank ya for the sound clips, Lowincash!

Car looks nice man, I like that clean look, as for the mufflers, well i hear a slight hum coming out, but as far as it being better or any different then stock. . . I dunno, i think my intake makes more noise then that. But to each there own i guess, if you want noise get a real muffler, if you want quiet stay with stock. The tone from the CL-S muffler may be noticiable to you and me as were accord owners, but the novice its still stock.

Dp you have any clips of what the car sounds like when driving? Did you have an air intake on, and did you remove any OEM components? Isn't the TL muffler the same dang thing?

here's a clip of my car driving by

http://youtube.com/watch?v=DbqCFZ4s84k

i don't have any aftermarket intake. i have stock intake with resonator on. i also have all my resonators on. it'll be a bit louder without the premuffler but at some point it didn't sound appealing to me lol i think i'm very picky =/

all the videos were taken a long while back since i no longer have this car anymore =/

oh here's another clip

Well this thread got off topic quickly...

anyway. I went out and got tips from AutoZone, I think they look pretty nice...



They dont overly stick out as much as the picture portrays and they added zero noise which is what I wanted.

Is the CL-S muffler the same as the TL muffler? I se a hell of a lot more TL's rolling around than I do the CL-S's. I think I might be able to get a deal on the TL muffler, too.

The internals of the CL-S muffler is the same as the TL-S muffler but the tips are different. However, you can easily take the tips off the TL-S muffler and put aftermarket ones on whereas the CL-S tips are permanently welded on. For more CL-S muffler pics and sound clips be sure to check out this thread:

Thank you, Chief! I like the tips on the TL muffler better. That saves me the agony of cuttin' stuff up again.

maybe about 2 inches out a bit. they actually look really good. my problem is though is my right pipe is bent a bit so the right one has problems staying on. So i think im gonna go get them welded.

They do look as though they are poking out a bit in the pick. Can you get a shot of the sides? Are those the screw on, or weld on type? If you have the weld on type, it will come out a lot cleaner looking when you finally weld them into place.

They are currently the screw on type. Its kind of annoying since one of my pipes is bent a little bit so the one on the right can fall back a little, but it doesnt fall off the pipe in whole.

Here is the requested side pic.






If you look well enough, you can see the screw on part. The cars pretty dirty too I'd say, its snowing here.

Anyone know if you can take a screw on and still get it welded? The guy at advanceautoparts said it would be bad cause of the metal used to make the tip.
?

i'm pretty sure you can get it welded on...and while welding it on have them align it so it'll be straight and stuff...looking at that picture reminds me of those domestic cars i see with them long exhaust tips hah...mostly mustangs and corvets with those long tips =/
