Custom Exhaust System
Custom Exhaust System St. Louis Auto Repair The Exhaust System performs several important functions. It quiets engine operation by muffling (or reducing) the sound of exhaust gases shooting out of the exhaust ports of the cylinder heads and also carries exhaust gases from the engine to the rear of the vehicle without leakage. If exhaust gases were to leak out under the floor pan, toxic exhaust fumes could be pulled into the vents and passenger compartment. The makes proper exhaust system repair extremely important.
The Exhaust System includes parts such as the Exhaust Manifold, the Catalytic Converter which converts the exhaust gases from a toxic combination into a safer combination of CO2 and H20 and a series of pipes, through the Muffler and then taking it all out the Tailpipe.
After the toxic gases are removed, more pipes move the exhaust to the Muffler. The Muffler is a sheet metal chamber that dampens pressure pulsations to reduce exhaust noise by running the exhaust through a system of baffles, chambers and tubes. There are many different kinds of Mufflers available to create as quiet or as full an exhaust noise as a customer would prefer. Most of the differences between the mufflers are in the materials used in the baffles and the different configurations of the chambers inside to isolate certain tones and/or eliminate other unwanted tones.
