Default Grinding off stock exhaust pipes

So I was wondering if it was possible to take the stock exhaust tips off, grind off the pipes back a couple inches and put the tips back on. Would it make my car a little louder?

grinding off the tips will not make it louder, the mufflers and center resonator still muffles the sound. Tail pipes doesn't do anything. I recently did some custom exhaust, Just by deleting the mufflers and custom tips, that will make a nice difference. The stock resonator still muffles most of the noise but you would get a infiniti G35 coupe growl.(Not really loud at all) It Sounds amazing. Of course custom will cost money.

You can cut them off then reweld them and this will do nothing for power or sound.

Not to burst your bubble but the only person that will notice your exhaust tips will be you. You could also risk melting your plastic bumper from the heat that gets trapped.

Wouldn't you be best served by getting a new cat back exhaust?
