What is a performance exhaust system?
Exhaust system is a mechanism present in every vehicle that enables the exhaust gases to get away from the engine. Every engine comes with a factory made exhaust system to take care of the exhaust gases arising as a result of burning the fuel. The major components of an exhaust system are the exhaust manifolds (collects the exhaust gas from multiple cylinders and sends to exhaust pipe), exhaust pipes, catalytic convertors (converts the toxic by-products less hazardous) and those oxygen sensors (electronic sensor used to measure the oxygen proportionate in liquid or gas). These components are partly responsible for the engine’s overall performance too.
Why we need an aftermarket exhaust system?
Okay but when every car engine comes with a ‘factory made’ exhaust system, what is the need for an ‘aftermarket’ exhaust system? Well, it’s actually because the car manufacturers design the vehicle with the average user in mind. And if you are a person in need of an above average driving experience, then you should go after this aftermarket systems.
Second reason is that most manufacturers will choose least expensive exhaust systems to bring down the overall price of the vehicle, in which case you can go for an aftermarket exhaust system to get your vehicle equipped with a high quality alternative exhaust system. Thirdly, and this is the most important one.These aftermarket exhaust systems can really improve the performance by freeing up some power in your engine. These systems make the discharge of exhaust gases more efficient and more quickly allowing your engines to ‘breathe’ better.
