Most auto owners do not give the exhaust system of their vehicle one minute though. That is until they hear a loud boom, exhaust hissing or rattling noises coming quite scarily from the rear of their car or truck. On top of that there are health and safety concerns from exhaust gasses. You can almost bet by the time they get to that point that they are going to be recipients of a large muffler or exhaust system repair bill. Is their any way that most motorists can extend the life and driving span of their exhaust and muffler system or systems?
Basically put your car or truck’s exhaust system includes the exhaust manifold, muffler, connecting pipes and in some cases a resonator. Any automobile made in the last 30 years will definitely have a catalytic converter you can bet. Single exhaust setups use an exhaust manifold of a single exhaust pipe, muffler assembly and tail pipe that extends under of just short of the rear bumper whereas on a dual exhaust system arrangement two exhaust pipes and a muffler assembly are used together with two resonators, two tail pipes. Each assembly is connected to it s own exhaust manifold and carries the exhaust gasses to the rear of the vehicle.
The manifold collects the exhaust gas from two or more cylinders and puts them into one pipe. The manifold needs to be heavy duty because of the high temperatures, so they are often made of cast iron. The header back is a part of an exhaust system that extends from the cylinder head back. It includes the outlet for the header, to the vent, to open air. This, like the turbo back, is an optional item that is put in to help increase the performance of a vehicle. The turbo back is the part of the exhaust that extends form the outlet of the turbo charger all the way to open air at the end.
The catalytic converter helps to reduce the exhaust emissions of the vehicle. Typically most cars will come with this but if the car is being produced for an area without exhaust restrictions, then the converter may not be installed as a result.
