Default Update: Need New Chrome Tips

Hello 6thgen forums!

Haven't posted for years, recently got a new job and school has been keeping me busy. But someone took my 2005 Maxima out for a joyride and accidentally backed into something, damaging one of the chrome tips.

Just thought it would be a good time to get new tips. Which ones do you guys like the most, or what are your personal favorites? Price isn't a big obstacle if they are worth it. Thank you.

Welcome back!

Some really prefer the stock look. Maybe it's a good time to get your hands on a pair if 07/08 cans. They should mount right up.

Thank you for the replies!

I have already found a site that would let me buy the stock tips for cheap, but I am still considering after-market chrome muffler tips. I am just interested in making a slight cosmetic modification, without touching the muffler.

Makes me wish Nismo made some nice quad tips...

Easiest route for tips are the 2007-2008 tips which looks much better than the 2004-2006 ones.

Or you can get Magnaflow Mufflers ... That's how I started it. Much better look. You also have the ones Hmax posted as an alternative.

jsmithsole:
Should have just looked into tips, which MagnaFlow has a ton of:
http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/00single.asp

Which one do you guys like the best? and what size would I be able to put on [or are they all universal and just need to be able to fit next to each other]?

Hmax:
does the StreetPower come as a pack of two mufflers or will I have to end up paying close to 300 for the set? If you guys think the sound is good, I'll do it.

Chemax:
Nissan GT-R quad tips [which are as close to Nismo quads that I could think of] are only 550.

EddyMaxx:
Which Magnaflow mufflers with tips do you recommend or do you have a favorite?

Also whoever moved the thread thank you, not used to the new forum organization.

They look great, really want them now. 240 for all 4 isn't bad, but would you recommend getting similar tips with a muffler attached? Magnaflow is a little expensive, and the StreetPower would be a little less than 300 shipped, [muffler included].

I got my magnaflows for $280 shipped a while back when they had this deal going on through an eBay seller.

$280 for both sides.

Aint gonna find that deal anytime soon, LOL. I have been looking.

OP, to be honest i would not spend 240 on tips, thats a lot of money. I would get the entire assembly wiht mufflers. The vibrant are sold for 148 each.

good luck

Thank you all for responding so quickly, and I did want to get this done before I leave home at the end of the week.

I found places online where I can get the Magnaflow tips alone for a little over 120. EddyMaxx, if you would be able to tell me which muffler set with tips you did purchase, I might consider going that route. Are there any other stores online you guys trust more than others?

Looks nice, without the logos and all, but I would still want quad tips.

Still debating whether or not I should get mufflers as well as tips. Since it is my first mod, I don't know if the sound difference will be that great, or even worth it. Without anything besides the stock intake, will the sound be noticeably different with different mufflers? With just new tips?

Tips alone won't change the sound. I put mufflers on and welded tips on. The only reason I didn't do quad tips was just the cost between the dual out mufflers and 4 tips. Did mine on a budget. I'm pretty sure you could get 4 of them in the opening though. I would suggest getting some mufflers

Yeah, dual out mufflers are more expensive. I got a good deal on Magnaflow 14802s [240 shipped for both, trying to get lower], do they fit and should I go with this specifically? Any other kinds of Magnaflow muffler with tip sets I should consider?

I ran just that way for a long time, it was definitely noticeable! I'd just wait and try to find the right deal....

How do the magnaflow muffler sound compared to the eBay exhaust? I need new tips, and don't want a loud overbearing exhaust...just can't justify 200 for tips and I think my question will help the OP as well.

Default Re: Need New Chrome Tips

So after considering financial options, I thought it would be best to do this entire rear end big or not do it at all. Was thinking about expanding my options instead of just going for the easier mufflers with tips already on 'em.

Because someone took my car for a joyride and scraped the back end, I was thinking about getting a new rear bumper. The 2007/2008 one looks way nicer than the 2004-2006. If anyone knows where I can get a primed '07 bumper for really cheap online, please post the link.

I also noticed that the Maxima exhaust seems to be offset on the output end. Is this just me, or am I going to have to get offset mufflers when I get everything? And since money won't be an issue due to me saving up, which mufflers [I figure I'll just get the Borla tips, they look really good] sound the best?

If there's anything else I should replace or upgrade while I'm down there, give me your opinion. Or any other moderately priced mod I can get out of the way as well while I'm at it.
