I have a Tsudo Catback exhaust now and love the sound, its 2.5 inch piping and has an enormous 4.5 inch tip, i dont really like the huge tip cus it has melted part of my bumper away. I am planning on taking it to a custom exhaust shop to have a 3 or 3.5 inch tip welded in place of the original one. Will this change any difference in the sound or will it stay the same?

Now how do u guys feel about the Tsudo, i never see anyone recommend it to anyone and i think it is pretty good. Are the Borla and Flowmaster ones that good? And what about the Steeda Exhaust, is that good?

It'll def. change the sound. The Tsudo doesn't have an actual muffler...it just has a can, and that's where all your sound comes from. If you just put on a regular, chrome tip, your sound will probably sound like ass, considering you don't have anything to "muffle" the exhaust

Its really deep, and it isnt raspy like a 240sx when they have an exhaust (Yes, its that sound) I think the angle is too much, but it has grown on me. I love it. Its very deep and smooth at low rpms, and it isnt too agressive at high rpms, and it doesnt rattle. i need to make a sound clip.

yea if you could get a sound clip that would be great. Cus i hate the thought of buying something without knowing how it will sound and perform.

If i go to Trubendz and get one of their 2.5 inch exhaust kits, which tip would you guys prefer, the Flowmaster or the Borla. will it make much different of a sound or no?

I'd go with Borla

Trubends takes their own piping (stainless or not...I don't know), but they take their own piping and put a borla or flowmaster muffler on, along with a borla or flowmaster tip.

The tip is just for looks. Has nothing to do with sound. Your sound comes from the muffler
