Your Magnaflow exhaust package comes with three pieces–a resonator, center pipe, and muffler section. The front resonator comes with a mounting flange that bolts right onto your stock catalytic converter. This part connects to a center pipe that is secured with exhaust clamps, which are supplied. And the rear muffler section joins together, exiting the car in the center of the rear bumper. Also, all the parts are stainless steel, which don’t rust or stain–nice job Magnaflow.
Scrap metal is the end product in its lowest possible form. A product is created, used, sold on Ebay, used some more, given to your 10-year old nephew, used a few more times, and finally thrown in the trash. But before it is thrown in the trash, you may not realize it yet, but this trash may be worth something. Ultimately, you are no longer using the item for the intended purpose, but rather, sending the metal back into the furnace for reuse.
Now consider the gases leaving the several cylinders of a cars engine. They need to get together into a single pipe which will take them to the scrap catalytic converter price guide. For this there is a device called an exhaust header which does this job. And this is where matters can be improved by opting for an aftermarket exhaust header. The good exhaust headers manage the gases better so that the gases are sequentially led into the single pipe instead of them all reaching the start of the single pipe at the same time. It also has smooth bends so that the exhaust gases are not slowed down while going through a bend in the piping. By doing this the gases are able to make a quick exit and the back pressure is reduced. You will feel this as your car’s engine being able to deliver power with lesser effort.
Hence, the human body has the digestive system and the excretory system. Likewise, the truck has its own emissions control system, and then the exhaust system. Both systems help the truck filter out combusted fuels as well as noxious waste or emissions. Noticeably, both the human body and the truck follow the same principle.
The consumer is also at fault. The fuel crunch is no different than the housing/mortgage fiasco. When we want to believe what others tell us, and we have to want to otherwise it can’t happen, we can end up buying homes we can’t afford, cars that are larger and less economical than necessary and put ourselves in a position that leaves us vulnerable if there’s a bump in the economic road. We can feel victimized, but there can be no victimizer without a victim. Fool, chump and patsy are only three of the words used in a dictionary, or thesaurus, to describe a victim.
The more aggressively you drive, the sooner you’ll need to have your brakes repaired. Most brake jobs focus solely on the pads. The pads wear down and need to be replaced before they begin grinding against the rotors. When that happens, you’ll need to have the rotors machined.
Now multiply our tire’s revolving speed, by the tire’s outside circumference, and we find that the tire is covering 18,016 feet per minute, divide that by the 5280 feet in a mile, and we find we are covering 3.412 miles per minute, now multiply that by the 60 minutes in an hour, and we find we are traveling 204.7miles per hour @ 6800rpm in 6th gear. If the engines redline is increased to 7500rpm, which it often is, because of a higher flowing turbo. Then our maximum speed would be 225.8mph, given enough power of course.
