tail pipe question...

I have a complete Borla system now for about 4 years and when I got it install I hate that my tail pipes are flush with the end of bumper... So I'm trying to think do I get New tips and just slip over? Or have the muffler shop cut and weld a pipe somewhere in the system so that tail can be extended... I'm afraid tips may change the sound?


Any suggestions?

Tips won't change the sound much, but whatever you do, I'll pay you for those Borla tips.

locoman99 is infamous around these parts, but not in a good way
No prob...just have em cut the pipes behind the tips and weld couplers in.

what's wrong with having tips that are molded to be flush with your bumper? it looks classy-er than tips sticking out in my opinion.... but you gotta make your car your own.

borla looks 1000% better than what you're about to do, IMO.

I dont think i will do anything with them... I just wish the tips would just be out a little more even just 1/2 to 3/4 inch... One of those things that have been bugging for years...
