Why You Should Have a Good Exhaust System

Jul 6, 2008
If your vehicle's exhaust system needs replacing, a performance exhaust system could be a great option offering many advantages over a stock exhaust system. Let's take a look at the pros of changing a stock exhaust and installing a performance exhaust system in a vehicle.

1. More Power. Installing a performance exhaust system can provide your car with more power. Additional horsepower is available by using catalyst based technology. How, precisely, does the cat-back system operate? A catback system utilizes extra wide exhaust pipes and low restriction mufflers, which allows for a reduction in exhaust back pressure by retaining vital emission components. The deeper throatier sound is another great advantage produced by the exhaust system. Since your vehicle's engine is in essence an air pump, to help the engine pump and flow air with less disruption a catback system helps.

2. Better Fuel Economy. The car's exhaust system will let you use less gas resulting in better fuel savings as well as better engine performance.

3. Long Lasting. A lot of the performance exhaust systems out there are designed to outlive your car. In some cases, you might be able to install a high end exhaust system that carries a guarantee of one million miles. Since the part is constructed with a particular grade of stainless steel -- the same grade that is used to produce aircraft! While the parts are pricier, they're very durable, often lasting to the end of the vehicle's life.

4. Better Resale Value. Using quality parts and components for your vehicle often results in higher long term value. The sport versions of many cars are priced higher than standard models.

With a Haynes or Chilton repair manual at your side you can replace your exhaust system yourself and save plenty of money on parts and labor. By installing a performance exhaust system yourself you likely will pay only slightly more for the system over a dealer installed stock system, thereby maximizing the gains you will realize in electing to go with the performance exhaust system over the stock exhaust system.

Despite its vital role in the car's operation, many drivers fail to properly attend to the needs of the vehicles exhaust system during automobile upgrades. A vehicle's exhaust system serves two purposes: a sound insulator, and purifying engine emissions. Gases that are not necessary are gotten rid of by a powerful exhaust system engine.

There are several parts that make up the exhaust system, such as the intake, the manifold, the exhaust manifold and the muffler. It is recommended that you purchase all the performance auto parts from the same manufacturer when available as that will ensure maximum compatibility. When purchasing an exhaust set you have a higher chance of knowing that the three main items characteristic to it (sound insulation, gas purification and improved engine output).
