Which Exhaust Tip is correct for my Car/Truck??

How will you know if which exhaust tip will fit your car??
This is question that is ask many times by potential Buyers of exhaust tips.  While many websites use an application guide, they suggest exhaust tips that are hardly ever correct for your application.

The only sure way to be sure is to simply do a little measuring.  All Assured Automotive Exhaust Tips have the specifications online.  Simply click on the picture or title of exhaust tip.  Some of the exhaust tips will have multiple pictures and all will show Inlet Size, Outlet Size, Length, and more.

Know your tailpipe size

First off you will need to know your exhaust tailpipe O.D.(outside diameter).  You do this by measuring the diameter of your tailpipe.  Now that you have that measurement, you know what size inlet I.D.(inside diameter) you need in an exhaust tip.  For example, if your tailpipe has a 2.25 inch O.D.. You will need a 2.25 inch Inlet on your exhaust tip.

Assured Automotive also offers T-304 Stainless Steel Reducers.  If you like the exhaust tip, but the inlet I.D. is not the correct size.  Installer can use a reducer.  Assured Automotive offers reducer for most of the popular exhaust tail pipe sizes.  Keep in mind some tips like the Assured Performance Z-Classic tips can be modified without using a reducer in most cases.

What size outlet do you prefer?

Assured Automotive has probally the largest selection of exhaust tips anywhere. Outlets available from round, rectangle, oval, dual and it goes on from there.

Which ever size outlet or style outlet you choose be sure it will clear any obstacles like bumpers or bumper cut outs.  A little measuring saves a lot of hassle later on.

What about the length?

Assured Automotive offers exhaust tips from 4 inches in length to 18 inches in length.  Just like the outlet, measure for any obsticles. like mufflers, pipe bends, etc.

FAQ About Exhaust Tips – Good Information

When car and truck owners are getting ready to install an stainless steel exhaust tip to there pride and joy(no, not the kid!!), there are some common questions always asked.

Assured Automotive Company(AACo) answers thousands of questions every year regarding exhaust extensions.  AACo has been in the automotive industry for over 19 years and can answer all your questions accurately.  Below are some of the most common questions AACo is asked regarding exhaust tips.

Will my Vehicle Exhaust be louder??

Exhaust tip will not change the db level of the vehicle’s exhaust exit.  A muffler and pipe length and design it what controls the db level of exhaust noise.

Will my Vehicle Exhaust sound different??

In many cases the answer is yes.  If the exhaust tip has a larger ID(inside diameter) than the tailpipe you are replacing.  The larger ID Outlet will act as an echo chamber and will enhance the exhaust exit sound.

Will my Vehicle get better M.P.G.??

No, not very likely.  At best an exhaust will improve your fuel mileage by just a fraction of a percent.  Improvement will come by better exhaust flow and exit.

Will it affect Vehicle’s Manufacturer Warranty??

In 20 years experience of building and installing custom exhaust systems I have never seen a manufacturer warranty be voided because of exhaust work from the MUFFLER BACK.  There is an exception for the 2007 and newer Ford and Chevy Diesels.  Because of the new manufacturer emission setups, changing any part of exhaust can void warranty.

Will this Fit My Vehicle??

There is no data available to look up vehicle OE exhaust specifications. AACo does have a helpful page to help you determine what tip is correct for your vehicle.  View Link Here.

Jim’s Titan with Assured Performance Double Wall Tips

Jim C. had four Assured Performance stainless steel exhaust tips from Assured Automotive Company and put them together to finish off custom exhaust.

Jim had his Magnaflow muffler and custom tips installed by Clanton Muffler Shop in Madison, Alabama.

The shop took a two single wall Assured Performance 4″ OD exhaust tips (AC35-4012AC) by 12″ long and cut the outlet at 90 degrees.  They then took 2 double walled Assured Performance 4″OD exhaust tips (AC013b-013c) and and married them for this custom look.  They made the weld on the interior side of the back to back tips.

Jim used Assured Performance Exhaust Tips because the are constructed of the highest grade Stainless Steel, T304 grade.  T304 has more nickel content then any other stainless.

Jim’s Nissan Titan exhaust looks just awesome.  Thanks for the pictures!!.

Todd’s ’08 Duramax “Big Daddy” Exhaust Tip

Test Pics for Exhaust Catagory

More info on this tip-Click HERE

Hey Guys,

I Want thank Assured Automotive Company for this exhaust tip!!

Finally a tip that will not rust or turn brown!!

I took this pic after we drove the truck about 25,000 miles, pulling a 20k lb goose neck trailer at that!!.  The TIP  looks like the day we put it on.

To install on my ’08 Chevy Duramax, We removed the Muffler Back tail section & replaced it with a pre-bent 5” tailpipe.  Cut the rear end back about 15 ” and bolted the tip on(we did put a few spot welds on it-per you suggestion).

About 4 of my co-workers have also bought these Chrome over Stainless Tips, they are just as happy as ME!!!!

Please post photo I sent you on your photo page.

I will be back!!

Gloss Black Exhaust Tip – 2000 BMW 323i

Josh F. sent us pictures of the new Assured Performance “Black Powder” exhaust tip on his 2000 BMW 323i 2.5L. I-6.    The tip he purchased for his project was part number AC079-BKG.

The tip was purchased from Assured Automotive Company.

Assured Performance Exhaust Tip AC079-BKG is a dual outlet with the outside dimensions of the outlet measuring 3 inches tall and 7.4 inches wide.  The length is 9.5 inches.  The inlet inside diameter is 2.5 inches.

Judging by the under carriage picture Josh sent us, no modifications were needed for install.

Josh had the exhaust tip welded on and it looks like he did a little bit of trimming on rear valance.  Trimming is sometimes required to allow clearance of the exhaust tip exiting the back of the vehicle

Looks Great Josh!!

Thank you for the pictures!!

2010 Dodge Challenger-Awesome Exhaust Tips

John W sent us some pictures of the AC1050 T304 Stainless Steel Exhaust Tip by Assured Performance installed on his 2010 Dodge Challenger.

He purchased the exhaust tips from Assured Automotive Company.

John believes, and so do we, that replacing the stock tips on his Challenger was a huge improvement on the looks of his ride.

John stated the did need to cut off the rear inside corner of the exhaust tip at about a 40 degree angle.  They then welded on a stainless or aluminum strip 3″x 3″ in size.

This allowed for room next to a molded undercarriage part.

The AC1050 Exhaust Tip is double walled and the outlet has an inside roll.  These tips have 2.25″ID inlet and the out dimensions are 7.25″ wide by 3″ tall.

This exhaust tip, like all of the Assured Performance Exhaust Tips are hand polished to mirror finish.

The heavy gauge stainless simply just adds to the top quality Assured Performance offers.

Assured Automotive Company want to congratulate John on a customizing job very well done.

We are looking forward to more pictures about his future projects.
