Exhaust Systems Explained
Your vehicle’s performance is directly related to its exhaust system. Gas mileage, emission levels and horsepower are all dependent on a reliable and effective exhaust system. Installing a performance or custom exhaust system can increase or decrease these various outputs. For instance, straight pipes will be much louder and have a more distinct sound than performance exhaust systems. However, this sound will cost you in terms of emissions and gas mileage.
The differences in performance between these two systems can be explained mostly by the differences in back pressure offered by both exhaust systems resulting in varying power curves. Simply, straight pipe systems have no back pressure because the muffler and catalytic converter have been removed. This means that the air-fuel mixture in your exhaust system is able to escape out of your tailpipe lowering your car or truck’s overall performance.
In contrast, performance exhaust systems increase your vehicle’s power curve by increasing back pressure within the exhaust system. This increased back pressure prevents the air-fuel mixture from escaping from your tailpipe resulting in enhanced horsepower, fewer emissions and overall improved performance.
Custom exhaust systems can offer a combination of the benefits of straight pipe and performance exhaust systems. If you are looking to increase your car or truck’s performance as well as give it a powerful sound, consult one of our mechanics to learn more about the options that will best fit your vehicle.
