back when I was a youngester and hanging around the flat tracks (thats where you race motorcycles without brakes and slowdown with your foot)
I asked an old man, he was probable about 28 years old; why he was painting his crome exhaust pipes white
his response as best I an explain, you apply white paint to the pipe then run around the track wide open seveal laps, where the paint looks burnt around the pipe thats where you want to cut them off, now we all know it will be burnt near the head but further back you should see a burnt ring around the pipe thats where you make the cut
reason being thats where the exhaust pressure is resonating and should be released to the atmosphere at that point for optimum HP
now this only works on a properly tuned engine to get the maximun benefit

also you need to run that pipe straight off the head out back as straight as possible eleminating all bends in the pipe that you can
