Expert Answers about Exhaust Tips


  • Cat-Back Exhaust System Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Colorado
  • Exhaust tips like the MagnaFlow 4" Exhaust Tip # MF35212 are purely decorative. They would not change the sound at all. You'd need to go with a cat-back system like the part # MF19018 if you wanted to change the sound. This also comes with a nicer looking exhaust tip too. It will increase performance as well. I realize as a gift this might be a bit pricey, but maybe he's your favorite son... This fits all of the gas engine versions of the 2018 Chevy Colorado as well.

  • How to Resonated Exhaust Tips Affect Sound of Exhaust
  • Resonator exhaust tips will slightly mellow the tone of the exhaust but you'd most likely not notice much of a difference. Since the resonators are straight through they can't really quiet anything down.

  • Should I Replace Resonated Exhaust Tips With Non-Resonated Exhaust Tips On a 2017 Dodge Charger
  • I don't really have a bunch of technical data to back this up but I am also very familiar with the exhaust system on your 2017 Dodge Charger. That said, the resonated vs non-resonated exhaust tips won't really matter much if at all. If you like the looks of them then I would say just keep them but if not you can add a set of aftermarkets while you are changing out the mufflers and resonators to install bullet mufflers or otherwise known as glass-packs. I will say, the route you are taking...

  • Will the Bully Round Resonated Bolt-On Exhaust Tip Increase Horsepower
  • The Bully Round Resonated Bolt-on Exhaust Tip part # PM-5104 will slightly change the exhaust note (more crackly) of your 2014 Mazda 3 but it will not increase horsepower/torque. In order to increase horsepower/torque you will need to obtain a cat-back exhaust system, MagnaFlow Cat-Back Exhaust System part # MF15297 for hatchback or part # MF15294 for sedan models which does so by reducing restrictions allowing the engine to breath better. According to MagnaFlow, the above systems will...

  • Recommendations for Exhaust Sound on 2002 Ford F-150 Lariat 5.4L V8 Triton Short Bed SuperCrew
  • Adding an exhaust tip like the MagnaFlow 4" Exhaust Tip - Stainless, Clamp-On for 2-3/4" - 3" Tailpipe # MF35212 to your 2002 Ford F-150 won't drastically change the sound but it will make a difference. It will make your exhaust louder because the cone shape is like a cheerleader megaphone to amplify the sound waves so it will sound a little more aggressive but it won't really change the depth of tone much. If you want louder this will definitely help. If you want the deeper rumble,...

  • 2017 Honda Civic 1.5 Turbo Exhaust Recommendation
  • The MagnaFlow 4" Exhaust Tip # MF35212 you referenced won't have a big effect on sound, it's more of a cosmetic feature to give the finishing look to an exhaust system. I have put several exhaust systems on just about everything I've ever driven and there isn't too many options aside from replacing the existing exhaust to make it louder. For your 2017 Honda Civi 1.5L turbo a cat back exhaust system like MagnaFlow Street Series Cat-Back Exhaust System # MF19312 would work great. This...

  • Would Bully Round Resonated Bolt-on Exhaust Tip # PM-5104 Fit 2013 Chevy Camaro V6
  • The Bully Round Resonated Bolt-on Exhaust Tip # PM-5104 is designed to fit on pipes with an out diameter that's between 1-3/4 inches and 2-1/2 inches. This would easily be compatible with the factory tailpipes of your Camaro. It won't really affect exhaust tone to a significant degree. Since you don't have mufflers currently this might lower the sound level a tiny bit but realistically you probably wouldn't notice it.

  • Reducing Exhaust Rasp on Vehicle with 2-1/4 inch Exhaust
  • Sounds like you are dealing with exhaust rasp based on what you described. An exhaust tip will not take care of this problem. The only thing you can do since you have a 4 cylinder would be to put an additional muffler on it like the part # MF10415 which should reduce it quite a bit. Normally you can add an x-pipe to a dual exhaust setup or improve the y-pipe but on a 4 cylinder motor you don't have that option.

  • Will a Resonated Exhaust Tip Make Exhaust Sound Louder on a Truck
  • Using a resonated exhaust tip such as # PM-5104 would make the exhaust sound more crackly, for lack of a better term, than the stock exhaust and it might be a little louder. If you want to keep the exhaust note the same then a tip like # MF35212 would be a better way to go. It fits a 2-3/4 to 3 inch diameter exhaust pipe. If you want a deep and louder sound then you would want a cat-back exhaust system. For that I would need to know the year, make, and model truck you have, bed length,...

  • Will Using a Resonator Exhaust Tip Keep Exhaust Note Deep and Loud on a 1993 Olds Cutlass Ciera
  • Changing the muffler will make the biggest impact to the exhaust note on a vehicle. Since you have installed a straight pipe glass pack muffler, which is one of the louder options but not necessarily the most deep and throaty sounding option, an exhaust tip won't make much difference in my opinion. With that said if anything is going to make a difference it would be a resonator tip such as # PM-5104. It is a good investment either way since it is stainless steel and resists corrosion naturally...

  • How To Increase Exhaust Sound on 2014 Mazda 3
  • The size of the exhaust tip has very little if at all to do with sound so the exhaust tips you just purchased are more or less for show. However, if you were to use a resonated exhaust tip such as the Bully Round Resonated Bolt-on Exhaust Tip part # PM-5104 then this would produce a slightly more crackly sound. With that being said, the best way to really change the sound of your exhaust for the better is with a cat-back system, the MagnaFlow Cat-Back Exhaust System part # MF15297 for hatchback...

  • Exhaust System Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Tundra with 5.7 Liter
  • A resonator tip like the part # PM-5104 that you referenced is designed to actually increase sound so it wouldn't be what I would recommend for the drone you are experiencing. If you are looking to reduce drone your only option would be to go with a chambered muffler to replace the bullet muffler you currently have. The easiest solution I can make for you would be to go with a Magnaflow part # MF15304 if you have a Crewmax or Double cab. Your other option would be to take your...

  • Resonator Tips that Could Fit 2000 Jaguar XJ8 and 1999 XK8
  • We have bolt-on style universal resonator tips that could fit both of your vehicles but you'll need to measure you tailpipes to first determine which you'll need. We have two sizes currently: # PM-5104 which fits tailpipe diameters of 1-3/4" to 2-1/2" Once you measure the diameter of the exhaust pipes you have you'll be able to easily pick out the correct one you'd need.

  • The MagnaFlow 4" Exhaust Tip - Stainless, Clamp-On for 2-3/4" - 3" Tailpipe # MF35212 will make your truck louder, but there are other options to make it much louder if that is what you are seeking. I recommend the MagnaFlow Red Pack Glass Pack Straight-Through Muffler - Universal - Aluminized Steel - Satin Finish # MF13129 as well. If you are looking for engine performance, I recommend the MagnaFlow Cat-Back Exhaust System - Stainless Steel - Gas # MF15749 if you have the SuperCab...

Adding the part # MF35212 to your current setup will lengthen the exhaust but it would not make it any louder.

  • Option for Making Exhaust of 2002 Ford F-150 Louder
  • Resonator tips really don't do anything to make the exhaust louder. In all honesty they are an appearance thing. You could look into cutouts like the part # MF10784 for a 2-1/2 inch pipe, part # MF10785 for a 3 inch pipe or part # MF10783 for 2-1/4 inch. If you install these before your mufflers and open them up your exhaust will get much louder.

  • Does Length of Glass Pack/Resonator Affect Tone of Exhaust
  • The length of a glass pack is going to basically only to affect loudness. The longer the glasspack the quieter it will be. The shorter it is the louder it will be. In general glass packs have a low, soft tone. Most of the highs will be totally cut out and you would be left with just some mids and a lot of lows. Resonators don't do much for affecting the tone. They basically just take a little bit of the edge off of the overall loudness of the exhaust. The longer the resonator the...

  • Cold Air Intake Recommendation for 2006 Chevy Silverado That Increases Sound of Engine
  • The MagnaFlow exhaust tip part # MF35212 that you referenced is not going to make the exhaust any louder on your 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500. It is basically an appearance modification. Since you don't way to change your exhaust setup another option would be a cold air intake like the Airaid CAD part # AR200-186. This removes the baffles or "mufflers" on the intake side of the motor that work to keep the sound of the engine down. It also will free up some extra horsepower as well.

  • Solution for Drone After Installing Magnaflow Muffler on Ford Explorer
  • The Magnaflow part # MF13215 is a chambered muffler and typically you don't see drone with these styles of mufflers unless you also remove the catalytic converters. Are your cats still in place. That being said the only way to really reduce drone is to add additional mufflers like a straight through part # MF10445. This has the same inlet/outlet size as the # MF13215 so it will work in place of a straight piece of your exhaust piping. Since this is a straight through muffler it won't...

  • Would A 3.75 Inch Tip Fit On A 4 Inch Pipe?
  • Since the Magnaflow Tip # MF35181 is a weld on, you could make it fit. Whenever I weld on pipe or tips to my exhaust I always match the piece I'm adding to the size of the existing pipe. I do this because I can lay down one bead to hold the tip in place, then weld around it. Then, once she's all welded up, I can go back with the grinder and grind down the welds if need be and I'm left with a clean looking connection. I like to keep the connection as seamless and smooth as it can be. I've...

  • Cat Back Exhaust System For 2012 Mazda 3 to Make Exhaust Louder
  • An exhaust tip won't make your 2012 Mazda 3 sound any louder. It's mainly a decorative item. The only solution we'd have would be a cat-back system which will give you a louder muffler setup. I attached a link to a page that has all of the kits we offer for your vehicle. You'd need to select your vehicle configuration on the page and the correct fitting kits will be listed.

  • How to Quiet Loud Exhaust Noise Inside the Vehicle After Installing New Dual Exhaust
  • Loud exhaust noise on the inside, with a deep drone, sounds like it could be a system with glass packs or another modified exhaust system that has a straight through type of muffler. If you switch the straight through mufflers with chambered mufflers it will take care of that issue. You will also want to check to see if there is a leak in the system somewhere, possibly ahead of the muffler and behind the headers. That happened to me once and it was horribly loud. A muffler shop should...

  • How to Quiet Exhaust Drone on 2000 Chevy Suburban
  • According to my MagnaFlow representative, installing an additional muffler as a resonator would really be your only option to quiet that drone. A resonator tip would do almost nothing to quiet your exhaust system. How much room do you have in front of the muffler? If you could reply and let me know, I can get back with my MagnaFlow rep, give him the measurement and see if he has any suggestions.

  • How to Make a Vehicle with a Cut Out before Mufflers Even Louder
  • Sounds like the cut out you installed on your 2007 Toyota Tundra with a V6 makes the exhaust pretty loud when accelerating, but once you hit cruising speed the sound level drops off quite a bit. Although it may seem like it's quieter than the stock exhaust I can assure that it is louder. There is no way the stock exhaust would be quieter at idle but then be louder than the cut out at highway speeds. The only way to increase the volume of your exhaust at this point would be to install...

  • Will Adding an Exhaust Tip Cause a 2008 Ford Fiesta to Fail Inspections
  • The great thing about exhaust tips that clamp on, such as # MF35212 as an example, is that you can take it off, have your safety and emissions tests done, and put it back on afterward. This will ensure that the vehicle does not fail inspections based on any exhaust tip added. It is unlikely that the addition of an exhaust tip would cause the vehicle to fail inspections though so I would not worry about it. We have a lot of exhaust tips, see link, and the ones that fit will be based...

  • How to Get Louder Exhaust on 1994 Geo Prizm
  • A resonator tip will have a pretty moderate effect on sound output. For a 1-3/4 inch diameter exhaust pipe, which your Prizm likely uses, use part # PM-5104. The # MF35212 fits 2-3/4 to 3 inch diameter pipe, which wouldn't work on your Prizm. To get a really loud exhaust note, you'd need to see a muffler shop for a cat-back system. Take a look at the FAQ article I've linked for you.

  • Replacement Muffler for a 2000 Chevy Blazer to Increase Sound Output
  • An exhaust tip like the part # MF35212 would certainly look good on your 2000 Chevy Blazer, but it isn't going to change the sound of your exhaust. For that you would need to replace your current muffler with something like the # MF11215 as this will increase the sound quite a bit since it is a straight through muffler. The inlet and outlet of the muffler is 2-1/4 inches which will match what you have on your vehicle's exhaust. You would want to have a muffler shop cut out your current...

  • Recommended Exhaust Tip for 2014 Infinity Q50 with 2 Inch Pipe
  • For your 2014 Infinity Q50, the 2-1/2 inch inlet on the carbon fiber tips is too large for your 2 inch exhaust pipes. The only fit we have for your size pipes is the Bully Round Resonated Bolt-on Exhaust Tip, 3-1/4" Round, 9" Long # PM-5104. If you want to enhance your vehicle instead of just the look or sound of the exhaust, I recommend the MagnaFlow Cat-Back Exhaust System - Stainless Steel # MF15310 which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle.

  • Could Magnaflow Quad Exhaust Tip be Painted Black
  • While we don't have a version of the # MF35228 in black you could pretty easily paint this black if you used a high heat black spray paint. Unlike exhaust components closer to the engine the tail pipes don't get hot enough to prevent paint from sticking around. If you paint headers for example the paint will not last as the metal just gets too hot. Exhaust tips are far enough away that the heat not as bad and a high heat paint will do really well.

  • Could Magnaflow Exhaust Tip MF35235 Fit 2019 Ram 2500
  • You'll have to measure the other diameter of your tailpipe to determine if the part # MF35235 will fit your 2019 Ram 2500. If it measures 2-3/4 inches then yes this will fit and work well. We don't have a way to look up the diameter of your exhaust pipe nor does Magnaflow test fit these on truck models.
