Do exhaust tips make a difference?

I’m working on restoring a 1979 Buick Electra and everyone in my car club says that I should put exhaust tips on even though they aren’t factory original. Do exhaust tips make a difference?

Exhaust tips make a difference in the appearance and the sound of your car but not the performance.
If you want your Buick Electra to sound like the king of the jungle, then yes, get them! From purple heart shapes to matte black cylinders, the choices are endless and they all help duplicate that icon roar.
And the price range? Anywhere from $10 to well over $1,000.
This is a simple, legal, and aesthetically pleasing vehicle modification. If you are looking for more horsepower, you would need to purchase superchargers or turbochargers—these modifications are not always street legal or accepted by every car insurance company.
