How to turn m performance exhasut tips black?

I really like the look of those black chrome exhaust tips.

How can I turn the M performance exhasut tips black?

Would prefer black chrome but a matte finish would also work.

Black chrome is very popular and there a number of places that will chrome the exhaust tips if you would like.

I would stay away from the do it yourself options as they probably cannot withstand exhaust heat.

What about brake or engine block paint, that stuff is made to handle like 1000 degrees lol.

my p3 cars boost gauge has a bunch of diagnostic numbers it shows, and yesterday in traffic and light cruise after traffic cleared, the EGT ( exhaust gas temp. ) showed 1396 degrees F. The tips must get VERY hot!

Yes, a couple hundred degrees.

Cars with side pipes like Vipers can cause minor burns lol.

Akrapovic produces Carbon Endings. They look Hot!
But not a cheap buy.
