Exhaust System parts

Tailpipe moves the flow of the car exhaust from the muffler to the back of the car. The tailpipe has various curves that fit sweetly around the chassis and other car parts. It more often than not sits right under the back bumper, and the end of this pipe is angled so the is lying downwards.

Mufflers reduce engine resonance to an absolute minimum when gases move through the exhaust pipes.

Exhaust Pipes are coupled from the exhaust to the catalytic converter. When it comes to in-line engines the pipe is a single unit, but on the V-type the pipe is connected to each flange, and these are coupled into a single pipe.

Catalytic Converters, there are two forms of Catalytic Converters, one is pellet and the other is monolithic, the pellet has a lot of tiny beads, and the gases in the exhaust pass above it. In a monolithic form, the gases pass through a ceramic block, this monolithic form converter must deliver oxygen in order for the Catalytic Converter to operate efficiently.

The ‘Y’ Pipe is linked to the Exhaust Pipe and makes one pipe into two or two into one. It is like making up two complete separate pipes, it would cost a lot more if you had two pipe because then you would need two Catalytic Converters and two mufflers and more pipe headers.

Resonators are basically the second muffler in view of the fact that the muffler cannot decrease the noise of the engine by on its own. In exhaust systems that are tunes which are intended for performance, the resonance of the exhaust pipes is also used to draw the combustion produce out of the combustion chamber more rapidly.

Exhaust Manifold directly steers the exhaust gases away from the combustion chambers over to the exhaust pipe instead letting the gases into the cabin. Numerous exhaust systems are constructed out of cast iron, nodular iron, stainless steel or heavy-gauge steel. The exhaust system has an exhaust dock for each one in the cylinder head, and a level surface on the system fits adjacent to a corresponding area on the exhaust docking area within the cylinder head. Some exhaust systems have a gasket flanked by the exhaust manifold and the cylinder head.

Performance exhausts

usually now fit on to the back of the original catalytic convertor and go from there to the back of the car, although on some exhaust applications you can also get the exhaust  manifold, downpipes and cat also included. The increase in BHP comes from the design of the exhaust, this might be an increase bore exhaust size of the exhaust pipe work, or by a straight through design of the exhaust silencers or a combination of them both, this will increase the volume and efficiency of the exhausts gases from the engine. Normally you will find with the increase performance comes with the added benefit of a sportier, deeper exhaust note. Another reason for fitting an exhaust system is to change the look for the exhaust by fitting a nicer looking tailpipe trim.
