Shortening my tailpipe


Recommended Posts


Hope someone can advise me.

I have a standard fit exhaust and the back box was recently changed.

It looks sort of 'odd' to have the tailpipe sticking out slightly and I would really like to cut this end back into  a slash cut to contour the way the bumper is.

Will I notice any difference in sound by doing this or cause any real harm to the way the exhaust operates as a whole?

Just curious

Sorry to drag up an old thread but if I say wanted to keep the existing backbox but weld on a bigger bore tailpipe(purely for cosmetic reasons) can it be done with no negative effect?

I guess i'd be welding a mild steel tailpipe onto a mild steel backbox

There would be absolutely no issue with that, providing the condition of the back box is good.

The new tailpipe may be made of stainless steel, again not a problem to weld onto mild steel with the correct welding wire and equipment.
