Both these brands are leaders in their area and use state of the art technology to manufacture the best in exhaust systems.
EXHAUSTS ARE VERY IMPORTANT
Your exhaust system is essentially used to reduce the noise from the engine. It is made up of 3 parts: pipe, silencer box and exhaust manifold connection.
A functioning pipe system brings other benefits such as directing fumes away from passengers, improving fuel consumption and improving engine performance.
WHAT IS CATALYTIC CONVERTER?
Part of Australia’s clean air law includes the requirement for all modern vehicles to be fitted with catalytic converter takes. Their role is to change harmful pollutants into less harmful emissions before leaving your car. Australia has emission standards you can read about on the Government website. Download a summary of emission standards for light petrol vehicles.
This article describes the catalytic converter and how it works in detail.
WHY SHOULD YOU WORRY ABOUT THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER?
There are a few main gases that the catalytic converter takes care of.
- Nitrogen gas (N2)
- Carbon dioxide
- Water vapor
- Carbon monoxide (CO)
- Hydrocarbons or volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- Nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2, together NOx)
If the catalytic converter is broken, your vehicle’s main emissions will start to leak, harming the environment. Your car alone will not create any damage, the risk comes if the car industry as a whole is not following the regulations.
COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT EXHAUSTS AND MUFFLERS
Your car’s power will not be increased by adding a new or performance system. However, it can improve your car’s performance.
This article explains some of the parts very well and is worth a read. Most mass produced cars come with a restricted manufacturer exhaust and muffler.
They normally have a smaller hole, forcing a smaller amount of air through the small hole. Aftermarket mufflers improve the efficiency of the engine by enlarging the aperture.
Extractors are pipes attached to the head and connect to the exhaust system. Their purpose is to transport gases in the most efficient manner, allowing the car to run efficiently.
They are sometimes also referred to as “headers”. The extractors play an important role in making your car perform better and lasting longer.
