Question Exhaust tips question - please help!

Hey Everyone -

So I have a single in, dual out (3"in, 2.5" out I believe) Flowmaster Super 10 with the resos taken off and had the exhaust shop run it out of the original stock tips... Now here's the thing: It's not deep enough sounding for me and I don't want to spend a crapload of money getting a new system... so I was thinking about some longer/wider tips to help deepen the sound. When I was at the shop originally and asked about them, the guy told me that adding longer tips or widening them isn't going to change the sound. Am I crazy or will adding longer (say like 12-14") and wider tips help deepen the sound?

Thanks, this has been bugging me for a while now!

I've read on other post saying that bigger tips will change the tone of the exhaust. Hopefully someone will chime in and give there opinion.

I bought the BSM 5" tips and I can tell there is a difference from the stock dual tips.

Thanks for the help guys - I think I'm going to go ahead and pull the trigger on some longer 5" tips to see how much the sound differs from the stock tips. Thanks again~!
