Most car and truck manufacturers leave plenty of room for improvement when it comes to horsepower and torque. That's not to say that these vehicles are poorly made, but many companies will choose the least expensive alternative when it comes to items such as exhaust systems.
An aftermarket performance exhaust can free some of the power in your engine. These systems allow for a quicker, more efficient path for exhaust gases to escape. This means your engine "breathes" better, so spent fuel and air exit the combustion chambers faster. That means more fuel and air can be burned to create more power.
There are several other good reasons to add an aftermarket exhaust system. One of the most noticeable is the subtle, but distinctly aggressive, change in exhaust note. Many of the better systems are only slightly louder than your stock exhaust at idle, but they deepen to a low "growl" during acceleration.
Aftermarket systems are made using aluminized steel or stainless steel. Aluminized steel offers slightly better longevity than stock systems, while stainless systems are designed to last much longer — usually for the life of the car or truck.
When researching exhaust systems, it's important to think about how you use your vehicle. Most aftermarket systems add to your car appearance, with larger tips and highly polished mufflers that provide a more refined, aggressive look.
The diameter of the pipes is another thing to keep in mind, especially if you're adding more aftermarket performance parts. Most cars and trucks benefit from slightly larger piping, but if you go too big, you can actually hurt your vehicle's performance. On the other hand, if you are adding a turbocharger or supercharger, you'll want to go much larger than your stock exhaust.
No matter what direction you choose, an aftermarket exhaust is sure to add to your car's performance, appearance, and sound. Whether you're looking for more power, show-quality looks, or both, the right exhaust system can change your car for the better.
