This, my 6MT also has the wider tips. It's AT vs MT as listed above with the different part numbers.

I Have people tell me all the time my Performance package mufflers are different than the regular manual because they sound different than theirs, I keep telling them it is the fact I changed the X-Pipe so I have a different exaust note.
I even had the guy look at his and mine and the part number is the same, the tips are the same and he still says I have different mufflers

My 2013 with Performance pack has the smaller exhaust tips like the first picture in this thread. I have the auto tranny.

Just as all the other posters said ...

ALL 2011-14 A/T V6's have the smaller "pipe within a pipe" tipped mufflers.

and

ALL 2011-14 M/T V6's have the bigger wide open tipped mufflers.

... just like the pictures in the 1st post.

Can't say if there is any difference in internal baffling or construction (would guess there is based on the sound difference) but the tips certainly are different.

Not to add fuel to the fire, but I know another person with a '13 6MT without the PP and it has the smaller exhaust tips.

This thread had me wondering so I went out and checked out my own car. I have a 2012 V6 MT with the pony package (no performance package) and sure enough I have the 2nd pictured wider exhaust. Now, I would like to know the reason for the difference before I go for an after market exhaust.

I'm pretty sure they knew people who ordered the manual probably wanted a more aggressive note and the automatics needed to be a little more quiet. There is no other discernible difference in the two exhausts from the headers back.

The difference isn't about the performance package. Its automatic and manual transmission that gets you different tips.

There is no exhaust before the headers (er, manifolds). Might you mean from the axles forward? Or even the tips forward even?
