Aftermarket exhaust systems maximize engine’s outflow giving more horsepowers and torque along with improved fuel economy. Custom exhaust systems are also defined by their growling tone. The factory exhaust systems are not tuned to give maximum performance for the engine, auto manufacturers spend more time at designing air vents than on exhaust pipes. Aftermarket exhaust systems reveal concealed potential of the engine. Custom exhaust systems can provide 1-2% of overall fuel economy. Brand-new exhaust system will not only give you the power increase, but will also provide loud roaring around you. When planning an upgrade of the exhaust system you need to take into consideration that emissions control equipment does not need to be removed. Choosing among all types of exhaust systems the best is a “cat-back” system, it allows to put large-diameter exhaust pipes and low-restriction performance mufflers into your exhaust system without harming the catalytic converter. With this type of system you will maintain legal limits of emissions along with receiving more torque and horsepower, less exhaust back-pressure, and a sportier sound.

Maintenance of your vehicle is a must, you need to check your exhaust system once in a while to be sure that your vehicle will run smoothly. As a rule stock exhaust systems include one pipe, though custom may have dual pipes to increase the performance of the vehicle. Aftermarket exhaust systems provide extra roaring especially if the owner aims to make his vehicle look stronger, with more muscle power. Dual performance exhausts will increase power output, because two pipes work together to burn fuel and oxygen for the car. The more combusted gas expelled, the more running power to your vehicle. If the exhaust system is maintained correctly it will serve lifelong. Though the exact time and performance of the exhaust system depends on how much you travel. Short trips may lead to the corrosion of the exhaust. If your car makes too much noise it is a sign that your exhaust system is damaged, and has holes, that will emit noxious fumes.

Car Air Filter Like Lungs For Your Vehicle http://www.socalpundit.com/blog/2011/04/car-air-filter-like-lungs-for-your-vehicle/ http://www.socalpundit.com/blog/2011/04/car-air-filter-like-lungs-for-your-vehicle/#comments Fri, 01 Apr 2011 11:52:44 +0000 http://www.socalpundit.com/blog/?p=29 One of the most important parts of your car’s engine is an air filter as it filters out dust, soil and other debris before they can get inside your engine. And due to elimination of harmful particles, air filters from CARiD.com prolong the life of your car’s engine.

There are three main types of the car air filters, namely pleaded paper filters, cleanable filters, and oil bath filters. Paper filters are the most used because they are the most affordable ones. They are suitable for the smaller cars and in areas where dust and pollution is at minimum. Small dust particles present in the air get stuck in them and clean air is passed through to the engine. They are not reusable and have to be replaced after certain mileage. Paper air filters usually have their mileage marked on them, and you should replace them prior to the expiration of that time. Cleanable filters are a bit more expensive compared to the paper ones but their efficiency justifies their cost. These are cleanable and will greatly reduce the replacement costs. The big particles that get under the hood of the car are seized while the oil drenched filter catches the smaller particles. If you use this type in your car, make sure you clean it frequently and keep it oiled. As for the oil bath filters, they are the least efficient among all the types of air filters. Oil bath is used to capture and seize big particles that can cause damage to the engine if they reach it. If you install air intake in your car, the dust particles that get through the air intake filter will be eliminated by this oil filter. Today though a modern space age air filter material has superseded even the best of the air filters. The introduced synthetic Nano Fiber solves all the issues of pleated paper and cleanable filters. Nano Fiber air filters are 3 to 5 times more efficient than the best paper filters and about 50 times more efficient than cleanable ones. Air filter of this type require no special cleaning and no re-oiling kit. Today, you have real choices when it comes to selecting an air filter for your car. There are many options available and you can choose whichever filter you think is the most suitable for your needs.

When this filter gets clogged, however, it begins to seriously effect your car’s performance. A blocked filter will result in poor engine performance, terrible fuel mileage, reduced engine durability or life. Thus you should change air filters regularly. When changing air filter, first you need to locate your air filter box and remove your air filter. On older carbureted cars it will be a circular container in the center of the engine. To open it you should remove one wing nut in the center of the container. If you have a newer car your filter box will be rectangular or square and will be located on one side of your engine compartment. Find the box and then remove the lid by unclipping the quick release clips on the side of the box. If you cannot find your air filter box, consult your manual. After you have removed the lid, pull the air filter out. Now hold the filter up to a light source and try to look through it. If you can easily see through it, the filter is still good and you can place it back into the box. If you cannot see through it, you should either put a new one in, or clean it, or put the old one back in until you can buy a replacement. Never run your engine without a filter as you can do quite a bit of permanent damage if you run it without the filter. Always remember, prevention is better than cure, and this is also applicable to your car’s engine, so don’t forget to replace or clean air filter in due time.
