Your Exhaust System
A properly maintained exhaust system is a critical part of having an efficient and clean vehicle. This system includes the exhaust manifold, muffler, catalytic converter and tail pipe. When each of these items is working correct, they help to minimize both noise and air pollution and in some cases may enhance engine performance.
30 years ago, it was not uncommon to repair exhaust pipe with scraps of tin cans and any number of other odd things. Today however, the many states have adopted strict regulations that require the exhaust system to meed certain measurable standards.
At Axleboy, we haven’t used tin-can patches…well, ever. When a part cannot be ordered over-the-counter, we prefer to use our Huth exhaust-bending tool and simply manufacture our own new parts.
