3 Reasons to Upgrade a Custom Exhaust System

custom exhaust

Did you know that your exhaust system has a significant impact on the performance and efficiency of your car? The exhaust is responsible for expelling the fumes from your engine created by the combustion process. How effectively the car can expel the fumes will determine how hard the engine has to work. If you want to improve the performance of your car, a custom exhaust system might be the right thing to modify your car and get the performance you want out of it.


At Redman’s Muffler & Automotive, we can build you a custom exhaust system to upgrade your vehicle. Here are just a few of the potential benefits.


Increased Fuel Efficiency

There are many ways that a custom exhaust system can increase your fuel efficiency. Improved exhaust gas flow reduces backpressure, which is the buildup of gasses in the exhaust system. Decreased backpressure means that your exhaust does not have to work as hard to expel the fumes. A custom system can also be made from lighter materials, reducing the overall weight of your vehicle, which will result in better fuel economy.


Higher Quality Materials

Speaking of materials, when you get a custom build, you can choose higher quality materials than the manufacturer’s standard. For example, we can use stainless steel or titanium to build a custom system. These materials are corrosion-resistant and will last longer than the factory standard. They will also be able to better withstand salt, sand, and wet road conditions in the winter. Road authorities often use corrosive materials to melt ice on the road, which can corrode your undercarriage, leading to expensive repairs.


Better Overall Performance

The reduced backpressure from a well-designed exhaust system allows your engine to “breathe” more efficiently, which can result in an increase in horsepower. That means you get more power out of your engine without having to use more fuel. Improved exhaust flow can also enhance low-end torque, improving your car’s acceleration and responsiveness.
