  • Suggestions for replacement Supersprint muffler tips

    i ended up with a Supersprint muffler from a client, but it has the DTM style tips, and that won't work for me. any suggestions for a replacement muffler tip that doesn't have "ECS Tuning" written on it, or look generally cheesy?

    thanks in advance.

      When I did the side exit exhaust on my race car I needed a few pieces of polished stainless tubing, one to make the tunnel and one to exit the muffler and I am 99% sure I found all the pieces I needed at Summit Racing.
      I either bought some extra long polished exhaust tips and cut them to my needs or they had polished stainless sections I can't remember.
      I think it was I found two generic exhaust tips and cut them to what I needed.

      Just a quick search for polished exhaust tips on Summit

        thanks, Jimmy - i appreciate it.

        while i respect the racing heritage behind these cars, i can't get behind the DTM tips on a street car - it looks silly to me.

          The real truth of the matter is most of the E30M3 race cars used the side exit exhaust.
          I think I read they only used the full exhaust to the rear when they had DB issues or series where the rules mandated it.
          I know in BTCC the rules changed I think between '89 and '90 seasons and the fast teams immediately switched to side exit as soon as the rules allowed.

            I wish I had some money to blow and I'd be shipping a new straight tipped ss muffler to your house so you'd ship the dtm muffler to me.

              if you're serious, let's talk - i'd love to not have to cut the thing up.

                Interested to see what you find Austin. I am on the same path with my Borla exhaust. Would like to replace the finned tips and go with a simple polished tips.

                  A year ago, I would have killed to find this exact muffler lol

                  I ended up making my own DTM tips from some bends sourced from summit
