Default Black Exhaust tip for Ecoboost

Have been looking all over for a black tip for my 3 inch Eco stock exhaust. Anybody steer me in the right direction. I can find chrome. Maybe just get a chrome one powder coated. Thanks

I have a black 4" tip made by DC Sports. I had to modify it to fit because the inlet was the same diameter as my tail pipe. I don't have any close up pics.

I painted my exhaust flat black. The whole back section that you can see. Looks a bit better than stock.

If you're looking to paint for a solution, you can try John Deere brand muffler paint. Very durable stuff.

plastidip it. i got a 16 year old with his first truck and he is plastidipping everything in sight. he did some stuff on his truck. he also did the rims on my mustang. been on the rims for a couple weeks, maybe a month and it is still sticking well. no doubt it would work on the exhaust tip. lowes has it in stock for abour 5 bucks a can

I can't imagine that plastidip would not melt off. My chrome tips were welded to the exhaust so it got stupid hot.

If your tip is a sleeve over the exhaust, plastidip might work.
