    Default Exhaust Tip??

    Hi,

    I was just wondering if anyone had or knows if you can get an halfords style exhaust tip for the Vec C lol.

    I have just recently replaced the rear box, so dont really want to pay out again already getting a new exhaust (the wife would kill me lol), so wondered if I could just get an exhaust tip to look like I have a nice looking exhaust. Also, Im not really planning doing much engine wise to my Vec, apart from the K&N panel filter thats already in there, so thats why I dont want to go for a custom job.

    Obviously the end pipe points down and I cannot find one anywhere that fits on, to make it look like a straight out exhaust.

    Any thoughts?

    Carl

    Yeah just chop the end off so it no longer points down, get a universal tailpipe from any website to the style you want, and get any exhaust place to fabricate it for you, simple enough job like

    Evan easier: buy decent tips from ebay from a seller such as MIJ, and (as mentioned in their ads) ask for the bolt-on type not the weld-on ones, so you can fit them on your driveway.

    Here you go. If you ask them nicely before ordering, they can make them any length you want, so just have a measure under your car to work out how far back you want the tips to start after cutting off the downturned bit, and how far past the bumper you want the new one to extend, plus how wide you want the tip to be, etc etc. Also measure your existing tailpipe so the the new one is the right size to bolt onto it.
