I was thinking about changing the tip on my Borla catback to a straight pipe with a slash cut. Will there be any difference in the sound. Just wondering if the tip that comes on it has any actual effect on the sound. Also does anyone know off the top of their head the diameter of the pipe before the tip.

2.5in Diameter Piping and the tip is 3.5in I believe. But it looks slightly smaller because it is a 'Resonated' Tip.

Sorry - Don't know about the Sound Q - Not sure on that one.

I did this to mine, and there was no difference in sound (just looks a helluva lot better). If you notice the actual inner diameter of the Borla tip is not much larger than 2.5inches.
