The exhaust system is responsible for more than changing your vehicle’s pitch – it helps ensure optimum performance across a variety of surfaces. No matter the medium – from the dirt track to the strip to the street – the system can be tailored to match the application.
Combustion, of course, begins in the engine cylinders, with the spent gases leaving via the exhaust manifold, eventually exiting out the back or side of the vehicle. But knowing what the system was designed for is a far cry from knowing how each individual component achieves those gains for you. Read on, and get back on the road with greater knowledge of the whole.
