I'm trying to find burnt exhaust tips for my car but I honestly don't even know where to start. I think the look from the turbokits.com muffler tips looks so sweet! Any suggestions as to how I can go by doing this?

You can achieve "burnt-blueish" look on stainless with a torch. It takes longer. If you dont know how to use a torch find someone who is. Remove the tips from youre car if they screw on. Clean it with degreaser. Rinse & dry. Polish till Shiny. With safety gear heat the the End of the tip with torch till glowing red...watch for the colour change. Let coool. Reinstall when cool to touch.

***Be Very Very careful if choosing this method. You want to Annodize the titanium Not weld it , start a fire or electrocute yourself.***
For the diet coke version, I think titanium worked better ( i'm not sure about stainless). Essentially youre annodizing titanium with a DIY dipping tank of diet coke, borax or TSP for the electrolyte solution. You need to build a cathode (negative electrode, a plastic bin to hold the solution, and a power source (which maybe the most difficult to source), and safety gear. I think ImportTuner did an article on using diet coke.
