The Advantages of a New Exhaust System

The Advantages of a New Exhaust System


There are many advantages to installing a new custom exhaust system including custom mufflers. If you own a high performance car, your Arizona mechanic will tell you that the OEM factory exhaust system can restrict airflow, limiting the performance that made you choose your car in the first place.

An experienced Arizona mechanic can recommend the best custom exhaust system, complete with custom mufflers to increase the torque, horsepower and throaty growl of your car. A custom exhaust system allows your car to breathe better so to speak. It produces a more effective pathway for exhaust gases to exit your exhaust system. In turn, this allows your engine to take in more air. This all results in more torque and horsepower. An experienced mechanic can install custom mufflers along with a custom exhaust system that can increase your vehicle’s performance by up to 15 horsepower.

In addition, if you purchase an entire custom exhaust package, including custom mufflers and headers it will include everything necessary to produce the greatest increase in performance. Both the appearance of your new exhaust and the more aggressive rumble will make your car stand out as a more high end, high performance vehicle. If you aren’t presently able to purchase a complete custom exhaust package you can have the work done a little at a time, such as having your exhaust tips or your catalytic converter replaced and then continue customizing as you are able.

The cost of a custom exhaust system can be offset by the savings achieved when a car is performing at peak efficiency. The most efficient use of air in and air out will provide the least resistance resulting in maximum efficiency, better gas mileage and provide future savings in spark plugs, sensors and more. Getting more air in and out is the least expensive way to maximize your car’s performance.

Another savings you will reap from installing a new exhaust system is that it will probably be the last exhaust system your car will ever need. Custom exhaust systems are stainless steel, so they won’t rust out. In older cars exhaust systems seemed to rust out every year.

Last but not least, your exhaust will burn cleaner, resulting in cleaner air, leaving behind a smaller carbon footprint.

If you drive a diesel you can also boost performance with a custom diesel exhaust system. This will increase your uphill proficiency and your towing ability while providing a more exciting look and sound.

As for the drawbacks of purchasing a custom exhaust system, there aren’t very many. Of course, there is the cost, but the savings in miles per gallon, plugs, sensors and the need to replace a rusty exhaust system can help with that. Most people consider the boost in performance and style to be well worth the cost.

Following the installation of your Scottsdale custom exhaust system and custom mufflers, newer, computer controlled cars should automatically adjust things like the setting of the idle speed or air to fuel ratio for peak performance. At this point you can also add a power programmer for even more horsepower. For older, pre-computer cars, now would be a good time to add a bigger carburetor for even more horsepower. Again, you can do this in stages, but definitely start with the exhaust.

In addition, you will want your custom exhaust system installed by an Arizona mechanic familiar with the noise ordinance laws so that you get the look and sound you want without having to worry about getting pulled over by the police.
