The material needs to be a sort of titanium. the process can be done with batteries, coke and copper wire...but there may be other ways of doing it also...

Might be wrong, but is there any reason a big flam torch can't do it to a stainless tip?

Or will it go orange/red instead...

I wanna say to make it blue you have to induce a chemical into the metal via electrical charge.

Why don't you just drive the car and let the tip turn naturally? Stop being a poser. Why pretend that you drive hard and your exhaust tip has changed colors from all the heat and flames? Real players drive real sht! Stop faking!

What is it with everyone thinking flames coming out of the exhaust is a good thing on an evo?? I don't get it.

Do some track days, the tip on the exahust will turn a nice bronze/gold. Oh wait, that would actually be using the Evo for an intended purpose.....
