The exhaust system includes the exhaust pipe and the muffler. Without a muffler, what you would hear is the sound of thousands of small explosions coming out your tailpipe. A muffler dampens the sound. The exhaust system also includes a catalytic converter.

The emission control system in modern cars consists of a catalytic converter, a collection of sensors and actuators, and a computer to monitor and adjust everything. For example, the catalytic converter uses a catalyst and oxygen to burn off any unused fuel and certain other chemicals in the exhaust. An oxygen sensor in the exhaust stream makes sure there is enough oxygen available for the catalyst to work and adjusts things if necessary.

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.
