I've seen these at the parts store with small holes on the inside of the tip. Do they do anything at all or just for looks? I'm trying to take some of the high pitch out of my 2.3 exhaust system. If they do anything would it be a deeper tone or even worse than now?

My credo
Give me money.
True resonators are installed right after the muffler, a "resonator" tip wont do anything but make it look goofy.

That's kinda what I figured. I hate to have the exhaust redone. Maybe I can find a motorcycle baffle big enough to go in the end of the pipe. lol

I put one on the old Gibson system on my Sport Trac several years ago to quiet it down a bit for a trip to Florida and back. It was a little quieter but not by much.
