When car and truck owners are getting ready to install an stainless steel exhaust tip to there pride and joy(no, not the kid!!), there are some common questions always asked.
Assured Automotive Company(AACo) answers thousands of questions every year regarding exhaust extensions. AACo has been in the automotive industry for over 19 years and can answer all your questions accurately. Below are some of the most common questions AACo is asked regarding exhaust tips.
Will my Vehicle Exhaust be louder??
Exhaust tip will not change the db level of the vehicle’s exhaust exit. A muffler and pipe length and design it what controls the db level of exhaust noise.
Will my Vehicle Exhaust sound different??
In many cases the answer is yes. If the exhaust tip has a larger ID(inside diameter) than the tailpipe you are replacing. The larger ID Outlet will act as an echo chamber and will enhance the exhaust exit sound.
Will my Vehicle get better M.P.G.??
No, not very likely. At best an exhaust will improve your fuel mileage by just a fraction of a percent. Improvement will come by better exhaust flow and exit.
Will it affect Vehicle’s Manufacturer Warranty??
In 20 years experience of building and installing custom exhaust systems I have never seen a manufacturer warranty be voided because of exhaust work from the MUFFLER BACK. There is an exception for the 2007 and newer Ford and Chevy Diesels. Because of the new manufacturer emission setups, changing any part of exhaust can void warranty.
Will this Fit My Vehicle??
There is no data available to look up vehicle OE exhaust specifications. AACo does have a helpful page to help you determine what tip is correct for your vehicle. View Link Here.
