Exhaust Pipes

Exhaust pipes are a system of tubing which leads exhaust gasses away from the engine bay and out the back or sides of the vehicle.

Exhaust pipes come in various diameters, usually somewhere between 2.0 to 3.5 inches. They usually have components along their length, instead of being one long solid pipe. However, some performance vehicles do have just a solid pipe on them, which is the most free-flowing design, but is also usually the loudest as well.
