Louder Exhaust Needed!

I have 100% stock exhaust, and its new, so im not messing with it, i want to cut the stock tailpipe back and bit and put just a tip on.

so my question is, what sort of tip should i be looking at, that will increase my exhaust sound, i dont want it to sound rough or fake, i just want it to enhance what i have.

keep in mind, im JUST replacing the tip, can this even be done nicely? i know cdn tire sell tips that have those mesh like inner's, do those amplify nicely, i know some have little wheels that spin around when air hits them, and jazz like that..i dont want anything stupid or tacky..just something that will make it a TOUCH louder, and not stupid.

if anyone can recommend a tip, size-wise or style-wise...please help me out, im to poor to get a new exhaust, and i dont want to wake up the neighbours, just a LITTLE more sound

ps-is it true that an intake will make the exhaust louder, or will it just mean more overall noise from the car?

tips wont make it sound any different...its impossible...the sound is already filtered out throught the stock muffler,by the time it gets to the tip there is no sound left to amplify!! if you want loud you have to buy a whole new muffler, they range from 80$ - 200$ plus average 100 dollers install...

Why not get a new muffler, remove the resonator, or get a fake cat (straight pipe, looks like a real one) [ crazy loud ]

if you want a louder exhust and short on cash.... just hacksaw your exhust like 2 feet after the cat or where ever the hangers are in the middle of the car.... it'll give you a sleeker rear end with no tip too
