- Backpressure: The exhaust system can create a certain level of backpressure, which is the resistance to the flow of exhaust gases. Too much backpressure can reduce engine power and torque, whereas too little backpressure can cause a loss of low-end torque.
- Exhaust gas velocity: The exhaust gas velocity can affect performance as well. A properly designed exhaust system will have the right balance of backpressure and exhaust gas velocity, which will help the engine breathe more efficiently.
- Exhaust sound: The sound of the exhaust can also affect performance, especially when it comes to turbocharged engines. A well-designed exhaust system can help reduce turbo lag, which is the delay in power delivery when the engine is under load.
Catalytic converters play a vital role in reducing harmful emissions from vehicle exhausts. Unfortunately, these valuable components have
