Catback Tip Replacement Question

Ok, I got the MBRP catback system (and no this post has nothing to do with how loud it is so leave that out of it) but when I got it, somehow the tip got bent slightly. Actually the tip on the MBRP isn't the nicest one out there anyway and I am thinking about changing it. I want to change it not only cause that dent looks like crap but the MBRP doesn't stick out far enough from where my Wings West kit sits, so the tip is about an inch or so under the lip which sucks cause I don't want the heat from the exhaust discoloring the paint, etc. Anyway, I need to extend it outwards about an inch or two at most. Also, the MBRP tip is 'rattling' against my Wings West kit also which is annoying. It only does it when the system is warmed up and only when I restart the car (after stopping and shutting it off of course) and when I shift hard. Not a big deal but still there.

Anyway my question is, the MBRP tip is double walled so I can't just go and cut just the tip, looks like that double wall extends deeper into the pipe. Also, what kind of tips are out there that are not ricey? I used to have a Ractive one but ractive is sorta 'ricey' to me. Any suggestions?

I did a search also and it's not overally common that someone would swap out the tip from a catback system for something else. Then again the BORLA or MAGNAFLOW has amazing tips compared to the MBRP.

Anyway, shoot away...... thanks in advance......
