Although the terms exhaust manifold and header are often used interchangeably, these two components are not identical, though they do serve the same basic purpose.
Many people wonder if it's okay to drive around with a damaged or broken muffler. Some people even assume there are situations when it's okay to drive with a muffler half hanging off, duct-taped up, or no muffler at all. Here are just some of the reasons why you should never drive with a damaged muffler.
We recently installed a new Magnaflow Performance Muffler on this beautiful 1992 Chevrolet Pickup Truck.
Catalytic converters are an exhaust emission control device that have been around since 1975. They convert toxic and harmful exhaust gasses into less toxic pollutants.
The exhaust manifold is the very first component of your exhaust system. Your Vehicle will either have one or two depending on year, make, and model.
Exhaust leaks can come from anywhere in your vehicles exhaust system. One of the more common exhaust components that need replacement is the flexpipe.
Today we will discuss performance mufflers and custom exhausts.

Internal combustion engines produce fumes known as exhaust in their normal operation. The exhaust fumes exit the engine’s cylinders after combustion and flow through the vehicle’s exhaust system for expulsion from the tailpipe. The exhaust system is made up of a series of metal pipes that transport the exhaust fumes to the rear, or sides of the vehicle where they can be safely released. While the exhaust system is relatively simple in its operation, it plays an important role in engine performance. Any issues with the system or its pipes can cause problems with the drivability of the vehicle. Usually a bad or failing exhaust pipe or tube will produce a few symptoms that can alert the driver of a potential issue.
