I just bought a Titan with a Banks Exhaust system already installed, and since there is some corrosion on the exhaust tip, I would like to replace it. I'm considering going with a ceramic coated black tip as a replacement. My question is related to the Banks tip. I don't know much about it, but it seems to be resonated? If I replace it with a 3rd party tip, will it affect the performance since the system is otherwise entirely Banks?

On a related note, any recommendations for Black tips?

thanks!!

I have a Bank's & no the tip is not resonated. Actually i've heard switching out the tip to a smaller one will lessen the drone.

I would recommend removing the Bank's tip & measuring the pipe where it attaches to see what size you need to buy. There's lot's of aftermarket exhaust tip's out there, happy hunting. Let us know what you find. :)

I recently removed the tip and had it powdercoated black i am really happy with how it turned out plus they will sand blast it first so it will clean up nice plus 20 dollars and your out the door.

I also recoment if your wondering about the change in sound take the tip off and go for a burn see what you think, becouse it is alot different.

that tip is stainless..all you had to do was get some mothers and polish...would have lasted longer than the truck....ive got a buddy with a 5 year old system that he shines every spring and its as nice as my new system.black would look cool though.

Thanks guys for the feedback. Interesting I saw a recommendation if looking for a cheap option to simply sand/roughen the shiny surface and paint it with matte or satin paint made for painting BBQ grills. Don't think I want to go that cheap, but still an interesting option.

Yah i have seen guys post pictures of thier tips with bedliner on them, i am a fan of bedliner but not sure how well it is holding up to the heat but atleast its an easy touch up.
