Hey guys,
I have the CarsonTuned rear lip on my car with the stock exhaust.
I don't have the money just yet to purchase the L-Tuned exhaust, so I wanted to get an exhaust tip and just extend mine a bit.
Trouble is, the outlet on our stock exhaust is 3.5" and I can't find an exhaust tip that's got 3.5 inlet and 3.5 outlet.

I don't want to make it look bigger, I just want to extend it out.
Any help is appreciated

So that's the only way huh?

Cut the exhaust and weld a new one on? Just seemed like so much trouble.
Are there no 3.5" straight through exhaust tips?
Could I cut a 3.5" outlet/2.5" inlet half way and weld that on!?!?!?!

go to pep boys in their sweet "tuner" section and get one of their tips and just duct tape that sucker tight.

duct tape is so ghetto i would super glue it on

actually, the dealer at Lexus told me to buy the SD tip and have the muffler shop retrofit it, btw, the tip alone costs 80 bucks.

I would rather go to Autozone and get one welded

Tip is like 15.00

Weld maybe 15

That is 30 bucks

Choice is yours man

Yeah, I'd like to do that too.
It's tough finding an L-Tuned Muffler with the extended tip... If anyone know where I can get one, great!

I'm going to ask my garage to find me a tip and retrofit it. I "could" get the money for the exhaust, the pockets are just HURTIN so bad these days. Ijust bought shocks and looking for springs....

IT"S NEVER ENDING!!!! MONEY PIT OF THE WORLD!
