exhaust tips do absolutely nothing for performance. they are just there to look good.

the onlt effect they have is to look good...

pipe diametre 1.75/2.00/2.35/2.5/3.0 inch

muffler design..
catalytic converter design..
and extractors/factory headers.. -all contribute to vary the exhaust sound..

If you want a louder/deeper sound, get a 2.5" catback exhaust. It's more expensive than just a tip but it also improves performance. For a 6 you can still find them pretty cheap... around $200 for a brand new one.

Is that sarcasm? I honestly cant tell.
How would you go about doing that? Changing leads around on the dizzy cap?
Would they make any difference to performance? Assume not
