Performance Exhaust Systems: How to Design, Fabricate, and Install
If you want to get the best performance out of any exhaust system, the Performance Exhaust Systems: How to Design, Fabricate, and Install book is the only resource you need.
A high performance exhaust system is both a critical and aesthetic pleasure to the car lover. Producing that desirable engine purr or growl, the exhaust system should be viewed as your vehicle's respiratory system. It allows the car to breath, giving it a way for gases to effectively pass through the body. As Performance Exhaust Systems: How to Design, Fabricate, and Install demonstrates, an exhaust system is about piping with solid diameters so there is less pressure in fume release. This maximizes horse power. But it has to be carefully balanced, because you don't want extremely large bore sizes. That can slow down the movement of gases. So the biggest possible bore isn't necessarily the answer. It could damper your low end torque.
This CarTech SA277 book covers street cars to racing exhaust system applications!
Understanding both the simplicity and complexity of a high performance exhaust system won't be hard. This book breaks down the air and exhaust flow dynamics in easy to follow language, giving even the least experienced car jockey an excellent start for considering layouts, part selection and fabrication of an exhaust system. Get a firm handle on carburetors, tube bending and mufflers. Discover the theory behind pumping loss reduction, turbocharging and cat-back systems. Get an up close and personal peek at highly regarded systems in the 2011 Ford Mustang and the 2014 Chevy GMC 1500.
This won't merely be a learning experience of the high performance exhaust system, but a fun one. The author, Mike Mavrigian, wants to show the world how to give their cars the attention they need with enthusiasm. He's an award winning car lover and has been writing about autos since 1977. A member of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, he is also the writer of Modern Engine Blueprinting Techniques: A Practical Guide to Precision Engine Building. Performance Exhaust Systems: How to Design, Fabricate, and Install continues the Akron native's mission to spread the love.
