Upgrade exhaust system for your vehicle online
The exhaust system, is a complex system that is necessary for the vehicle. Its functions lie in the collection of all exhaust gases produced during the combustion process and the purification of pollutants through a catalytic converter. These gases are then safely transported out of the vehicle into the open air. In addition, noise is minimized by means of a silencer. The EU regulation currently allows a noise level of 72-75 decibels, but over time the guidelines for new vehicles may become stricter. A modern exhaust system consists of an exhaust manifold, cleaning system, pipes connecting the individual parts and a silencer system. At Q-Parts24 you will find all the spare parts you need to replace your exhaust system from scratch or to upgrade it to a higher quality.Learn more

Construction of the exhaust
Depending on the engine, the exhaust can consist of one or two lines. Catalytic converters and mufflers are connected by pipes and vary depending on engine power and type. It is important to note that the engine performance is not affected by the back pressure of the exhaust gases. The whole system is connected to the underbody by flexible suspension elements. Vibrations and mechanical stress on the vehicle can even cause the system to touch the ground. This can lead to a problem and result in the replacement of certain spare parts. Another problem is corrosion. This occurs after hot exhaust gases condense in cold places. The positioning of the individual parts and suspensions plays a major role in noise reduction. This is because, in addition to engine noise, the exhaust system itself can also produce noise through vibrations and transmit this to the body. However, engine noise is mainly damped by silencers in the exhaust system.
Every vehicle produces exhaust noises. They are caused by the emission of gas from the cylinders. Of course, there are fans of this noise who love it especially in sports cars. However, the noise at the tailpipe must comply with certain EU regulations. That is why silencers are used. These minimize the noise by reducing the sound energy of the exhaust gas. Absorption and reflection of the sound are two ways to do this. Reflection silencers work by placing pipes in chambers that prevent the propagation of sound. Exhaust gases are split and distributed over various long pipes. Waves can then self-level each other after being deflected or reflected. Absorption silencers use porous material (glass fibres, rock wool) that absorbs sound waves. This transforms sound energy into heat. Exhaust gas flow can easily be directed through pipes in the silencer and sound is absorbed through small holes in the material. Reflection attenuates medium and low frequencies. That is why combined reflection-absorption systems are used, which serve several frequencies. All processes usually take place in the silencer, but there are also other sound absorbing elements that can help. Resonators, catalytic converters and exhaust flaps can minimize frequencies with a high interference factor.
