Big exhaust tips

Ok simple question (Yes I am a real newb to cars)

What is it with those "fart cannons" (the big fat exhaust tips)? What is so special that it does to a car? Does it raise HP?
Thanks in advance

a tip, does nothing but make it look bigger, just a simple tip bolted on to the current muffler...a new exhaust system could increase hp with better airflow and such, therefor making more noise...fart can..

A three inch tip raises horsepower by about 50. A four inch tip is good for 100 horsepower. Either tip in conjunction with yellow stickers doubles the increase.

Depends on the stickers too. Apexi & HKS are 120hp.

Anyway. As for drain pipe tips. Maybe 5 hp over standard muffler
Compared to a high flow twin pipe muffler. No diff.

I hear NOS stickers are good for 50hp each! No need for the actual system itself! If you REALLY want power, you must stack on a wing that is directly proportional to the size of your exhaust tip.

According to you guys, they are nothing but a waste of money because they don't do anything, and have no purpose? :? 8O
