Whenever I see cars with "DTM tips" I always grin. Do they know why they're called "DTM" or why they're even curled upwards? One day i'm going to design my own exhaust that will extend 10 feet above the rear bumper and see if people catch on ;)

Decibels are a measure of sound; sound does not correlate to the power of an exhaust (hell, run the car without headers and rev it up -- not only will you eventually destroy the engine, but you will get an absolutely thunderous roar; make sure you're standing back and wearing ear protection).
I also fail to see how the length of the exhaust tip itself has any sort of significant bearing on what kind of horsepower your engine produces.
