SLS exhaust tips on STS?


Recommended Posts

i'm shopping for a 2000+ STS, and i noticed at least one has the SLS-style "2 outlet per side" exhaust tips instead of the better looking (IMO) STS tips. did Cadillac put SLS tips on some STSs? could the entire exhaust be different? any difference in performance?

thanks,

Here is a shot of the 2000 Stock exhaust on the STS:

If you saw some cars that did not have this exhaust, perhaps they were not 2000 MY, or were not STS's? Or were you looking at a variety of years, in which case the exahaust tips do vary year to year somewhat.

GM seemed to switch back and forth between the 2 in one tips and the Quad tips year to year...

most (but not all) 2003 STSs have the Quad tips

most (but not all) 2001s and 2002s STSs have the "2 in one" tips

most (maybe all) 98-2000s have the quad tips..

It was like GM couldn't make up their minds which looked better... Or maybe it was a stock thing

yeah, as if GM had planned to sell more SLSs, and then realized the STSs were more popular and didn't want to get stuck with the Quad tips...so they just put them on the new STSs. are the exhausts identical otherwise?

My '02 SLS had the STS style tips. I swapped them out for the quad tips as I like them better. I did some research on Ebay and found no rhyme or reason for the tips. In any given year, SLS or STS, they can have either tips. Go figure

I guess it is all opinion...I like the quad tips like my 92 has better than the 2 in 1 tips that my 01 STS has.
