Aftermarket & OEM Exhaust Tip

Some components on your car, truck, or SUV that appear to be just cosmetic also serve other functions and a prime example of this concept is an exhaust tip. In most situations if these devices are not maintained then exhaust gas may enter the interior of the vehicle. They are an extension of the tailpipe assembly that emits the exhaust aft of the body enclosure. They can also be added for cosmetic purposes to enhance the appearance of an automobile. In most circumstances the tail pipe length may have been adjusted to facilitate them and if they are worn or damaged they require replacement. The appropriate routing of an exhaust system is very important for the safety of yourself and your family.

Exhaust tips are primary installed to enhance or customize the appearance of a car or truck and the options available for these devices are endless. They can be added to create the appearance that a single exhaust is a dual exhaust and several other custom effects. They are normally constructed of chrome or stainless steel that can increase their life span. They can also be installed to extend the exhaust to the appropriate length to emit the exhaust gases at a safer location. In some situations they will incorporate baffles or similar devices to modify the sound of the exhaust system.

The replacement process for exhaust tips can vary based on the installation method that was incorporated. If they are welded in place then you will be required to cut them off using the appropriate tools. If the installation is to facilitate a modification then the length of the tailpipe may require adjustments. In most circumstances they are secured utilizing a clamp and the replacement process is very easy depending on rust issues.
