Exhaust Tip Question

Hey guys,

Not sure where to post this but the exhaust is on the exterior. Anyway I'm installing my exhaust on the Challenger and my exhaust tip is the same diameter and the exhaust pipe. It is chromed stainless.

1. Will the stainless tip expand without cracking so I can put it over the exhaust pipe? That was the way they were from stock. Like I said they are the same diameter so it doesn't need much.

2. Should I just expand the exhaust pipe and put the tip in the exhaust pipe and band clamp it?

Thanks Dave

exh tips

if it don't need much and i mean very little.. i'd try a propane torch and heat the inside of the tips and see if u can slide on or light tap. it also might help if u took at rag soaked in water and froze it to rape around the exh pipe to shrink while heating the chromed tip..

Is it chromed stainless or just polished stainless? IF chromed, the chrome is likely to crack... The stainless may be really strong and difficult to expand... butt welding might be better...

You can get exhaust adapter stubs at O'Reilly or Autozone with an O.D. the same as your tips I.D. for next to nothing and slip it together.

Get an some exhaust pipe that fits the INSIDE diameter, and sleeve it, a 3 -4 inch section should do it, or whatever you think works for you.

Shove half of it in the tailpipe and the other in the tip, it will hold and align things up.

Can use band clamps, make sure the bolts face UP, cleans the look of the install looking from the ground. if that matters.

I would buy an adapter rather than trying to expand it. The chrome will crack and won't look good.

Adapters you speak of are for two different sized pipe. The problem is two pipes of same OD & ID to be joined.

One of two ways to solve the problem

Have a pipe that the ID fits over the OD, of the tailpipe and tip. Slip the tailpipe & tip into that pipe. That would require two butt ugly muffler clamps.

Or have a pipe that the OD fits in the ID, of the tailpipe and tip. Slip that pipe inside of the tailpipe & tip, clamp with 1 band clamp... much cleaner
