Many header manufacturers are able to further improve upon the stock components by making the header tubes equal lengths to ensure each cylinder is performing at its best. Conversely, the stock exhaust manifolds are heavy cast pieces that do not allow the exhaust gases to exit the cylinders individually, but instead collect in the one-piece manifold and reduce exhaust flow. In general, a set of headers will allow the engine to breathe more easily, hence more power. Headers alone will not typically change the exhaust note much, but can offer a 7% to 10% increase in horsepower depending on the style used. Note that certain headers will not fit the factory mid-pipes, and will require the installation of new mid-pipes. A good portion of engineering and testing has gone into making the exhaust note of the w211 quiet, unobtrusive, and comfortable while driving. For many, this is completely acceptable and may be one of the primary reasons they have chosen a Mercedes as their perfect car. For more performance oriented individuals, the exhaust note can come across as muted and diminish the enjoyment of a great performance-luxury car. Fortunately for the auto-enthusiasts out there, the aftermarket has answered your calling and has a wide variety of exhaust system components to not only improve your car’s exhaust note, but also increase performance.

GTHAUS harnessed the power of quality engineering to facilitate the best sounding and performing exhaust systems out there. To put it simply, there is nothing quite like it on the market and, arguably, nothing better. Now that you’re face to rear bumper with the Explorer ST (we don’t suggest checking this out on a car that isn’t yours—you will look strange), crawl under the vehicle, and look up. Ford pipes the exhaust to four outlets—but turns the gases 90 degrees to flow downward and exit from the underside of each chrome tip.
Mid-pipes will offer a nice European growl from the engine and the occasional pop, bang, and gurgle under deceleration. Expected performance gains can be as high as 8% to 10%, but also expect the exhaust note to be a bit more intrusive while cruising. Not only a straight exhaust increases the sound performance, but it also improves the overall performance of your vehicle. The tortuous exhausts often prevent a larger part of polluted air to come out. Straight exhausts, in contrast, help get the polluted air out and let in the fresh air. Diesel exhaust tips are a popular choice for people who own Dodge Cummins, Ford Powerstroke, or GM Duramax diesel-engine powered trucks. Exhaust tips on a lifted diesel truck are even more prominent and visible than they are on your average hot rod or performance car, which is why they’re such a common upgrade. Borla offers performance exhaust systems with a variety of sound levels to ensure your experience fits your specific needs. Each aftermarket exhaust comes with the maximum horsepower and torque available throughout the entire RPM range. iPE have own factory to produce high quality handcraft and offer complete products that make your car alive.
, and only 120,000 kms, the warranty was not an option for me. I took my car to my local trustworthy mechanic who inspected the 4 cats and noticed that the 2 coming down are okay, and only the mid-ones needed changing since they rattled from mild banging with his fist . AMG Industries specializes in the design, development, and manufacturing of highly specialized stampings, complex welded assemblies, and fabricated stainless and carbon steel components. STEP.14.The old exhaust manifold gaskets come out separated, per cylinder. STEP.13.The exhaust manifold should almost free fall at this point.

I bought those Mopar quad tips off a guy who had an ’11 IE 392 and they fit perfectly on my stock ’10 R/T.
This design severely restricts the exhaust gas flow and the performance. It is now available to the public at all of the Supersprint dealers, worldwide, as it guarantees an outstanding performance increase, and a unique, deep V8 sound. Our long tube headers and the HJS Motorport, R&L high flowing metallic cats system does just that; it turns the performance around, ensuring a gain of + 40 / + 50 Nm throughout the powerband, and a massive + 45 Hp at peak. This car needs more extensive exhaust work, focusing in a different, specific area of the system; that is where all of the extra Hp is hiding. When AMG introduced the Kompressor technology, raising the performance of the M113 5.5l V8 engine to the next level, we recognized that the potential for more torque and more peak hp had become even greater. I just checked with the order guide I used to order my GLA45 in 2017 for the 2018 model. The only exhaust option is U21 and it specifically called out there is a dedicated button on the dashboard. My car doesn’t have this option, just the regular exhaust and I don’t have a dedicated button for exhaust. SE does have an electronic valve gate, but different piping and no exhaust button . i’ve been driving mostly in Sport mode since i like the suspension in comfort setting and transmission in auto.
The 1-year warranty period commences on the date that the exhaust is shipped from our warehouse facility. All shipping charges associated with this warranty are the responsibility of the customer.

From its high polish exterior finish to the splendid hand welds, Meisterschaft exhausts look just as beautiful as they sound. With a better flowing exhaust you have faster throttle response and more power. Meisterschaft s Welding technique and internal construction are handled with extreme care and also given more attention to details compared to other brands. Meisterschaft builds their exhaust systems out of the highest quality 100% Stainless Steel. Along with better performance, the increase in exhaust flow also provides a louder, more aggressive tone over stock. The factory exhaust unit was not built with optimal performance in mind. Manufactures have various factors they take into consideration when designing an automobiles exhaust system that come before performance, such as cost reduction, sound deadening, etc. All of these compromises come with a price, they reduce performance.
The Mercedes C32 AMG was built on the very popular W203 chassis and is considered a compact luxury car. Mercedes built the C32 AMG to compete against the E36 and E46 BMW M3. The older C32 AMG was built on the W202 chassis and had a 3.6 liter V6 engine that produced 276 horsepower with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. The car was equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission and a total of 5,200 W202 C32 AMG were produced making them quite rare. The AMG name is known worldwide and separates the regular Mercedes-Benz models from the awe inspiring ones. Mercedes fans know the engineering that goes into each AMG model with many being hand built which goes to show how much time and effort goes into the AMG line. The average gain in engine torque, from 2000 to 6800 rpm, ranges between + 45Nm and + 60Nm. This translates into a much stronger pull from the very first crack of the throttle.
Automatically switching off the engine when stationary, for example in tailbacks or at traffic lights, lowers fuel consumption and emissions and saves fuel costs. The ECO start/stop function is perfectly integrated into the drive system and responds particularly rapidly. This makes for longer engine standstill phases, and therefore even more savings. Other advantages include the low noise level and comfortable starting characteristics. This suspension with selective passive damping system ensures balanced ride comfort by optimising ride characteristics, damping effect and stabilisation according to the road surface conditions. In the case of small bumps, the frequency selective damping function is reduced and therefore improves road roar and tyre vibration characteristics and sensitivity. In the case of larger bumps on poor road surfaces, the full effect of the passive damping is available and the vehicle is stabilised more strongly. The newly developed AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension and the speed-sensitive sports power steering bring dynamism and comfort in the Mercedes-AMG G 63 to a whole new level. Diverse on-road and off-road drive programs, the AMG Driver’s Package and the selectable AMG Performance exhaust system make every journey a real pleasure. The Exclusive interior provides that something special for very discerning customers.
Then watch in your side mirror the look on the face of the person driving that car you just flew by. Make sure that there aren’t any small kids in the car, you might scare them. I’ve previously removed the driver-side stock exhaust manifold to repair a minor crack . I’ve written a detailed DIY guide for removing the stock SLK55 exhaust manifold, and installing new exhaust headers or stock exhaust manifolds. The DIY made it possible for me to remove the stock headers, the install new RennTech long tube headers. As previously mentioned, if it wasn’t for the deal on the RennTech headers as well as not wanting to spend additional funds at the time, my top choice would’ve been a full Supersprint exhaust because it’s a full system.
