Enhancing the Vehicle Performance with After Market Exhaust Systems

There are various after market exhaust systems available in the market, but generally by exhaust system we mean the pipe that takes the waste fuel or air muddle out of the car engine through the exhaust. These exhaust systems are known as Axel-back systems, Turbo-back systems (cars with turbo-charger) and cat-back systems in the market.

The basic purpose of after market exhaust systems is to boost the flow of gases from the engine which makes the engine to respire in a better way. This can be done by non-restrictive exhaust systems that have large exhaust pipes and muffler with no baffles. The technology used in after market exhaust systems proves to be rampant modification in the modern vehicles as it gears up the torque and horsepower both. The effectiveness of these exhausts depends on the kind of engine it is being installed on and on the type of exhaust system itself, such as cat-back or turbo-back systems.

Vehicles having turbochargers install turbo-back systems in them that help to eradicate the catalytic converters on the vent of turbocharger. By installing a turbo system of Turbo-XS in Subaru WRX 2003 model you get 25 pounds of torque and 20 horsepower. These after market exhaust systems prove to be very impressive as they improve the performance of the car.

Cat-back systems just swap the pipe after catalytic converters. The piping comprises of a muffler and it leads to the converters. On the other hand axel-back systems have a piece of pipe next to the flange and a muffler. Generally all three after market exhaust systems provide torques and horsepower of different levels; turbo-back system gives the maximum, followed by the cat-back system and then axel-back system at the minimum. But this rule may vary upon the kind of vehicle used.

After market exhaust systems being less restraining than the exhaust systems produce louder sound. Every type of after market system has an individual decibel rating excluding the customized cars that tell you the expected noise intensity. You won’t be having problems if the level falls under a maximum level allowed in your state. You may find various after market exhaust systems’ manufacturers like Edge Racing, Greddy, HKS, Turbo-XS, Apexi and Borla that offer different specifications and material info for the noise level and agreements. While buying you should look for all the options available to you.

There are standard sizes of after market exhaust systems like the non-turbo automobiles come in 2.25 inches and turbocharged vehicles come in 3, 3.5 inches and also in 4, 4.25 or 4.5 inches. Select the appropriate noise level and size for your vehicle exhaust. If the exhaust piping is too big then your vehicle will suffer power reduction because exhaust valves will have lack of backpressure causing it to slow down. This means reduction in vehicle speed with low or high rpms depends on the engine and vehicle type.
