The benefits of a Bespoke Exhaust
A car’s exhaust is charged with removing fumes and by-products of a burnt engine while maintaining the engine noise around recommended levels. Nowadays, it is common to see vehicles with custom exhausts instead of factory models. A standard bespoke exhaust (Novalari) should have a catalytic converter, muffler and resonator. Fitting a bespoke exhaust in your car rather than a standard produced mass version offers you several benefits, which could result to an overall improvement in your cars appearance and performance.
The benefits you stand to gain include:
* Improved performance
* Aesthetically appealing
* Better horsepower and torque
* Environmentally friendly
Stock exhausts are naturally restrictive, therefore increasing backpressure. Steel bespoke exhaust come with a header containing polished ports; a flow ...view middle of the document...
Nevertheless, a custom-made resonator or muffler will offer extra appeal in design, size and colour, and subsequently your cars overall appearance.
Just like with every other profit making industry, automobile industries target cutting down the costs of production. Most resolve to using standard gauge steel that are only good for all basic functions. Bespoke exhausts are manufactured from higher grade steel that is highly resistant to rust and corrosion therefore allowing them to last long. A modified vehicle to increase its power will always produce a lot of heat, forcing you to upgrade it from basic to bespoke steel exhaust that can handle increased heat demand.
Better horsepower and torque
By simply fitting a bespoke exhaust in your car, you will experience an increase in horsepower and torque. A non-restrictive exhaust lets in plenty of air and fuel producing better combustion, while also effectively taking out burnt gases.
It can significantly help improve you engine and exhaust sound and they come in many shapes, designs and sizes. By changing the design of the muffler, header and resonator, your car will sound better without even any engine modification. Exchanging a stock exhaust of a four cylinder car, with a bespoke exhaust of a wider diameter or flow through resonator will make it sound as throatier as a V6. A naturally aspirated car on the other hand will be confused for a turbocharged engine.
Most cars with stock exhaust have a basic catalytic converter that overtime will prove ineffective in cutting down pollution. Catalytic converters convert dangerous hydrocarbons, nitrogen compounds and carbon monoxide into less harmful compounds. This therefore becomes essential to upgrade to a tailor-made exhaust that have better and very reliable catalytic converters. In fact, it’s advisable that you do the swap before taking a MOT test.
Fitting bespoke exhaust in your car is a great and affordable way of improving its appearance and performance. However, it is important that you fit the right one as fitting the wrong type may cause more harm.
