I want tips!!

I am looking for exhaust tips just like what are on TTA like these:


The issue I have is I DONT want resonators - i like how my car sounds and I it must fit my 2.5" tail pipe. I want to clamp on since I have original exhaust. All I can find are those with 2.25 inlet or it has a 2.5 inlet but has resonators...

Help!!

By the way..went to car show this weekend (2000 cars) and got 2 place for all firebirds (all years)!!!

Re: I want tips!!

Try the auto local auto parts stores. I have the stock exhaust too, and my chrome tips I have had for the last 2 years where like $5 at autozone. Last time I looked they had splitter exhaust and I want some tips like that too. That 11,000 mile black GTA sold me on them.
