Mufflers go under the car just downstream from your catalytic converters, pretty close to under the front seat..

New resonators at the end of the tailpipe right under the rear bumper need tips.

So...No for tips on mufflers as they are in the middle of the exhaust system.

Yes for tips on resonators as they are at the end of the exhaust system.

Here's a pic from another post that shows what MD is talking about:

The long round cans are the mufflers. The shorter ones in the back are the resonators.

On a stock system the muffler is called a "suitcase" because it looks like one: a large tank with two pipes going in the front and out the back.

The picture in that link in not stock. It appears that the "suitcase" has already been deleted in favor of two mufflers, and the leftside exhaust pipe and resonator apparently have not yet been installed.

So since there are two pipes coming in and out i have to get all new pipes or what? i was told my another member on here to just get new mufflers because the stock exhaust system isnt that bad juts the mufflers "suitcase" so he informed me just get new mufflers Dynomax Performance Exhaust | Mufflers | Super Turbo Mufflers that is what i got will that work or will i have to buy stuff to convert it into the stock system?

The pic in that link is the partially installed Corsa system. I just linked to it to show him the difference between mufflers and resonators.

Your current muffler is a dual in/dual out single case muffler. If you swap over to two (2) individual mufflers to replace your single case muffler, then you don't need anymore piping installed.

What I would do is select two mufflers based on how they sound to you (lots of clips here and out on the interwebs of different exhausts), then replace that single case muffler with the two new mufflers and leave your stock resonators and tail pipes alone.

I did look at the link but you didn't list which muffler part number you purchased so I can't tell for sure. Do you have the part number?
