2010 Dodge Challenger-Awesome Exhaust Tips

John W sent us some pictures of the AC1050 T304 Stainless Steel Exhaust Tip by Assured Performance installed on his 2010 Dodge Challenger.

He purchased the exhaust tips from Assured Automotive Company.

John believes, and so do we, that replacing the stock tips on his Challenger was a huge improvement on the looks of his ride.

John stated the did need to cut off the rear inside corner of the exhaust tip at about a 40 degree angle.  They then welded on a stainless or aluminum strip 3″x 3″ in size.

This allowed for room next to a molded undercarriage part.

The AC1050 Exhaust Tip is double walled and the outlet has an inside roll.  These tips have 2.25″ID inlet and the out dimensions are 7.25″ wide by 3″ tall.

This exhaust tip, like all of the Assured Performance Exhaust Tips are hand polished to mirror finish.

The heavy gauge stainless simply just adds to the top quality Assured Performance offers.

Assured Automotive Company want to congratulate John on a customizing job very well done.

We are looking forward to more pictures about his future projects.

Gloss Black Exhaust Tip – 2000 BMW 323i

Josh F. sent us pictures of the new Assured Performance “Black Powder” exhaust tip on his 2000 BMW 323i 2.5L. I-6.    The tip he purchased for his project was part number AC079-BKG.

The tip was purchased from Assured Automotive Company.

Assured Performance Exhaust Tip AC079-BKG is a dual outlet with the outside dimensions of the outlet measuring 3 inches tall and 7.4 inches wide.  The length is 9.5 inches.  The inlet inside diameter is 2.5 inches.

Judging by the under carriage picture Josh sent us, no modifications were needed for install.

Josh had the exhaust tip welded on and it looks like he did a little bit of trimming on rear valance.  Trimming is sometimes required to allow clearance of the exhaust tip exiting the back of the vehicle

Looks Great Josh!!

Thank you for the pictures!!

Black Powder Coated Exhaust Tips-FINALLY

T304 Stainless Steel Exhaust Tips that have a durable Black Powder Coat covering.   Powder Coat is a durable long lasting method of sealing a metal surface against elements.  You can find powder coating on everything from automotive frames and suspension parts to motorcycle frames to metal fencing.

High Gloss or Flat Finish

Assured Automotive Company released in late 2009 their “Black Powder” Powder Coated Exhaust Tips.  They are available in Gloss or Flat(satin) finish.  AAC0′s “Black Powder” Exhaust Tips use a high temperature powder coating process.  They can within temperatures of more than 400 degrees.

The powder coating process on AACo’s Exhaust tips are done right here in the United States.

All of Assured Automotive Companies Exhaust tips are made of T304 Stainless Steel.  A high grade Stainless Steel that will not rust for over 300 years.  T304 Stainless has more nickel content than any other stainless.  If your “Black Powder” Exhaust Tip happens to get a rock chip, no need to worry.  The tip will not rust like chrome over steel will.  Stainless Steel also welds easy.  Typical mig welder will weld the tip on with no problems of burn through.  Some manufacturers use black chrome.  Black chrome will peel and flake off after time.  Powder Coating will last for years and years.

Common Questions Asked About Exhaust Tips

When car and truck owners are getting ready to install an stainless steel exhaust tip to there pride and joy(no, not the kid!!), there are some common questions always asked.

Assured Automotive Company(AACo) answers thousands of questions every year regarding exhaust extensions.  AACo has been in the automotive industry for over 19 years and can answer all your questions accurately.  Below are some of the most common questions AACo is asked regarding exhaust tips.

Will my Vehicle Exhaust be louder??

Exhaust tip will not change the db level of the vehicle’s exhaust exit.  A muffler and pipe length and design it what controls the db level of exhaust noise.

Will my Vehicle Exhaust sound different??

In many cases the answer is yes.  If the exhaust tip has a larger ID(inside diameter) than the tailpipe you are replacing.  The larger ID Outlet will act as an echo chamber and will enhance the exhaust exit sound.

Will my Vehicle get better M.P.G.??

No, not very likely.  At best an exhaust will improve your fuel mileage by just a fraction of a percent.  Improvement will come by better exhaust flow and exit.

Will it affect Vehicle’s Manufacturer Warranty??

In 20 years experience of building and installing custom exhaust systems I have never seen a manufacturer warranty be voided because of exhaust work from the MUFFLER BACK.  There is an exception for the 2007 and newer Ford and Chevy Diesels.  Because of the new manufacturer emission setups, changing any part of exhaust can void warranty.

Will this Fit My Vehicle??

There is no data available to look up vehicle OE exhaust specifications. AACo does have a helpful page to help you determine what tip is correct for your vehicle.  View Link Here.

Which Exhaust Tip is correct for my Car/Truck??

How will you know if which exhaust tip will fit your car??
This is question that is ask many times by potential Buyers of exhaust tips.  While many websites use an application guide, they suggest exhaust tips that are hardly ever correct for your application.

The only sure way to be sure is to simply do a little measuring.  All Assured Automotive Exhaust Tips have the specifications online.  Simply click on the picture or title of exhaust tip.  Some of the exhaust tips will have multiple pictures and all will show Inlet Size, Outlet Size, Length, and more.

Know your tailpipe size

First off you will need to know your exhaust tailpipe O.D.(outside diameter).  You do this by measuring the diameter of your tailpipe.  Now that you have that measurement, you know what size inlet I.D.(inside diameter) you need in an exhaust tip.  For example, if your tailpipe has a 2.25 inch O.D.. You will need a 2.25 inch Inlet on your exhaust tip.

Assured Automotive also offers T-304 Stainless Steel Reducers.  If you like the exhaust tip, but the inlet I.D. is not the correct size.  Installer can use a reducer.  Assured Automotive offers reducer for most of the popular exhaust tail pipe sizes.  Keep in mind some tips like the Assured Performance Z-Classic tips can be modified without using a reducer in most cases.

What size outlet do you prefer?

Assured Automotive has probally the largest selection of exhaust tips anywhere. Outlets available from round, rectangle, oval, dual and it goes on from there.

Which ever size outlet or style outlet you choose be sure it will clear any obstacles like bumpers or bumper cut outs.  A little measuring saves a lot of hassle later on.

What about the length?

Assured Automotive offers exhaust tips from 4 inches in length to 18 inches in length.  Just like the outlet, measure for any obsticles. like mufflers, pipe bends, etc.

Why Should I Get An Air Suspension System

The main reason to add an air suspension system to your car or truck is safety. Air springs add lift to the towing area of your vehicle to improve your control and ride. Here are a few situations that an air suspension kit can eliminate.

Sag

How many times have you hooked up a trailer or camper and there is a sag at the hitch? That sag leads to some vehicle control issues when you are at highway speeds. You can eliminate that with an air suspension kit. The variety of setting available can help you level out loads of varying weight. This also eliminates excess sway at speed.

Headlight Aim

Occasional campers, weekend boaters, and now-and-again haulers all run into the same problem. When their vehicle is under load the headlights point up into the air. If your load is heavy enough to unbalance your vehicle, then the front tires are not securely on the ground and you lose a certain amount of control. An air suspension kit levels out your vehicle, aiming your headlights correctly and reestablishes full contact with the ground for maximum steering control.

Rough Ride

As vehicles age, springs get a little stiffer. When you are carrying a load, there is not as much play in the suspension. You may even have trouble dragging your tail pipe. Air suspension kits will help to take some of the strain off of old or overburdened springs and smooth out your ride. Once it is smooth, maybe you could put a new exhaust tip on without worrying about dragging it off on your next job.

An air suspension kit can prevent a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle while it adds a measure of safety to each time you are hauling a load. Now, a suspension kit does not have to necessarily be practical. You can use on to get that little bit of lift you want for the rear end of a project car. Add the kit and an exhaust tip and you have a little show as you go. The best thing about these kits and tips is that they can be installed with tools you should be able to find in any garage.

Two Reasons To Use An Exhaust Tip

Usually they are the last touch when a vehicle is customized. An after thought to some, but usually a necessary addition to hide a bare metal blight on your car. An exhaust tip can be that crowning touch. The last little thing that needs to be added to give your project the feel that it is done. They can be used to add a look of personality or used in combination with an air suspension kit to give a flashy look. Here are the two most common reasons that people add a new exhaust tip to their vehicles.

The Usual Suspect

First and foremost, people add a new exhaust tip to give their car or truck a customized look. Everyone want a personalized touch in the vehicle that they are driving. Some people take that desire to the exterior of the vehicle as well. After market valve caps for the tires, air suspension kits, and exhaust tips are a few easy do-it-yourself modifications. The Chevy bow-tie, a heart shape, or powder-coating to match the color of your car are some of the hundreds of options you have in an exhaust tip.

Clean Up Your Act

You have seen them, the cars that have the soot buildup on their rear bumper or just behind the rear tire. The worst are the exhaust systems that are run through the rear bumper. Any number of things could have happened: tail pipe fell off, factory extension rusted away, or the rear end dragged and pulled the original exhaust apart. Whatever happened, that black soot stain is not an attractive feature for your vehicle. An exhaust tip, though decorative in nature, is a great way to extend your exhaust system an extra few inches to avoid the staining. Granted, they do require a small amount of tailpipe to be in place, but they can be an inexpensive way to save your paint job. If your car is dragging on driveways and bumps, you may need to add an air suspension kit as well as an extension to your exhaust.

The exhaust tip is usually the first thing a young kid thinks of to add a little something to their car and the last thing added to a project car. Thoughts may move to air suspension and valve stems later, but the exhaust tip is quick, easy, and inexpensive, but always important.

Slam It Or Stabilize It With Air Suspension

Air suspension kits have many practical use and the occasional not-so-practical application. They can be used to help when you tow a heavy load, reverse the sag in the springs of older cars, or just to lift a car for a more attractive ride. Here are a few of the reasons to install air suspension and what problems it will correct.

Towing

The most common time that you may want a little more lift in the rear end of your truck is when you are towing a heavy load. The load placed at the back of the vehicle aims your headlights at the empty air and lifts the front tires just enough to increase your chances of losing control of the vehicle. This sag can also cause you to drag on high driveways or bumps in the road. An air suspension kit can eliminate all of these problems by raising the rear end a few inches. This redistributes the load enough to lower the front end, aiming the headlights correctly and putting the tires more firmly on the ground. The lift will help you clear driveways and road hazards.

Fix Age Related Sag

Some cars have a reputation for their rear springs sagging with age. Some trucks sag from heavy use. No matter what the cause of the sag, adding air suspension to the rear end will negate the results. Granted, if the springs are broken you will have to replace them, but if they are only bent or bowed, this is a quick fix to an expensive problem.

Glam Your Ride A Little

A lot of guys out there like to raise the rear end of their project car a little. You are not going to get a 9 inch lift from an air suspension kit, but something like 2-3 inches is not unheard of. Just enough to give your car a sleeker, hungrier stance as it rolls down the street or sits in a show. Another nice addition is a chrome or stainless steel exhaust tip. Sometimes, the smallest touch is the one that finishes a project.

Not everyone wants to go to the expense of changing to heavy duty springs. An air suspension kit is an inexpensive way to avoid that cost and fix your problems. When you are tricking your ride, these kits, along with a shiny exhaust tip, can be the difference that counts most.
