XB GT/Coupe Exhuast Tip

Hey guys, I dont own a classic falc, wish I did, but I do have a realted question.

The rectangle/squarish exhuast tips that ive seen on XB Coupes and GT's (i think), what size exhuasts to these tips fit?

If I had an E series car with a 2.5' exhaust would it fit? Or this this a really dumb question and they fit any size :/

Ive always loved the look of them, so I was wondering are they stocked everywhere and will they fit a 2.5'?

Thanks.

EDIT: If anyone has a pic could they post it to make sure we are talking about the same type..cheers

They will fit a 2.5 inch pipe but you have to mod them yourself.I have done it on my XB GT.
Cheers Alex.

Re: XB GT/Coupe Exhuast Tip

I ordered my new tips from http://www.fomoco.com.au/Shopping/
They do not look as though they will fit on to my 2-1/2" twin system, but, my exhaust guy says he will cut the back out and make them fit.
Btw, @ $45.00 ea, i reckon they are good value.

You expand a pipe over the existing pipe but the only drama with that is it does restict the system.It would be an idea to have the whole back section milled out to accomadate the 2.5 pipe.

Too right FPVGT, i believe that is what he is going to do, just waiting till we run her in, then see on the dyno if we stay @ twin 2-1/2" or go 3".

Re: XB GT/Coupe Exhuast Tip

Thats the one..drool! I love them So what size are they standard? Will it cost much to get them fitted to a 2.5?

Re: XB GT/Coupe Exhuast Tip

NO the $45 ones are reproduction, made in Taiwan. Someone paid $1200 for a rubber boot mat, kinda kinky hey? Also, $405 for a locking XB GT fuel cap (same guy bought both) There's lotsa money out there to be swindled. Sure beats taking the stuff to swap meets and taking back home again, and again....

Re: XB GT/Coupe Exhuast Tip

I figured they are not genuine. But the dimensions are all the same? Even material?

If you have the money then whatever, I still think 405 for tips is bordering on insane.
