The First Step To Hooking Up Your Car

By Lawrence Becker

If you’re looking to sup up your car, one of the first things to consider is adding an after market exhaust system to your car. This change to the exhaust will make a noticeable difference in performance and add a sleek look to the car as well. In addition to performance and looks, get ready for a beautiful sound from the engine. Heads will turn when they hear your car whiz by after you add the exhaust system.

The best way to describe how an exhaust operates is by comparing it to the human respiratory system. The tubing throughout the exhaust system is how the gases are released and in a custom exhaust system, the gases can be released more effectively.

As we see, the lungs and tubes are comparable. Carbon dioxide escapes the body through the lungs, but if something is blocking the lungs it’s harder for us to breathe. Same concept goes for an exhaust system. If the gases can’t exit in a smooth and efficient way, it will slow down how the car operates.

The larger the exhaust system, the easier the gases created can exit. In an aftermarket exhaust system, the exit pipes will always be larger. When these gases can exit easier, there’s less pressure of the toxic fumes. This will also create more horsepower for the car.

Many people always assume that the bigger the pipes, the better. It seems as if that would be the case, however if the pipes are too large, then it can cause the gases to move slower. Always make sure that the low end torque is not wasted. The most efficient way in figuring out the right size pipes is based on the RPMs produced. Every engine is different, so it will vary.

Another key component of an after market exhaust system is the tubing that they use. Besides using larger piping, it’s also the piping that they use (how it’s made). In an after market exhaust they typically use mandrel bent pipes, while a stock exhaust system uses crushed bent tubing. Crushed bent tubing actually slows the gases from exiting due to the ring which sits around the tubes.

Once you decide you’re going to make the upgrade to your car, you’ll notice there are many high-end brands to choose from. Some of the best sellers on the market include, Borla, Dynatec, MagnaFlow and Flowmaster. Depending on the type of car, one of these brands maybe better than the other.

Once you find the right exhaust system for your car, you’ll be a happy camper. It’s a great change to make and you can even keep your exhaust when it’s time for a new car, so make sure you go with a quality system. Get ready to make some noise down the streets!
