Pops and bangs are created when unburned fuel ignites in the exhaust system. This can happen when too much fuel enters the system, causing it to heat up and ignite. The noise can be amplified by fitting a decat or full decat exhaust system.
Do you have to tune your car after straight pipe?
This design is inflexible and will require you to tune your vehicle to a straight pipe exhaust if you want to change its setup. There is also very little room for error with this approach, as even a small decrease in pipe size can result in a significant loss of power in low-end torque.
What is louder than straight pipes?
The exhaust sound is louder because a factory downpipe is narrower and more restrictive than an aftermarket downpipe. This implies that sound waves may travel farther, resulting in a louder sound when you accelerate.
Should I get headers or exhaust first?
For those who are always on the go, it’s best to prioritize headers for a boost in performance, or an exhaust system for a better sounding car. However, if you’re not as worried about speed or sound, then you can wait to make these upgrades.
What is a Stage 1 tune?
A stage 1 tune is an ECU remap or chip tune that improves performance without costing a lot of money.
2. Turbo-diesel and turbo-petrol vehicles usually see a 20-40% increase in power and torque after a stage 1 tune.
