To extract maximum performance, an engine needs an efficient, well-designed, and properly tuned exhaust system. In fact, the exhaust system's design, components, and materials have a large impact on the overall performance of the engine. Engine builders and car owners need to carefully consider the exhaust layout, select the parts, and fabricate the exhaust system that delivers the best performance for car and particular application.

Master engine builder and award-winning writer Mike Mavrigian explains exhaust system principles, function, and components in clear and concise language. He then details how to design, fabricate, and fit exhaust systems to classic street cars as well as for special and racing applications. Air/exhaust-gas flow dynamics and exhaust system design are explained. Cam duration and overlap are also analyzed to determine how an engine breathes in air/fuel, as the exhaust must efficiently manage this burned mixture. Pipe bending is a science as well as art and you're shown how to effectively crush and mandrel bend exhaust pipe to fit your header/manifold and chassis combination. Header tube diameter and length is taken into account, as well as the most efficient catalytic converters and resonators for achieving your performance goals. In addition, Mavrigian covers the special exhaust system requirements for supercharged and turbocharged systems.

When building a high-performance engine, you need a high-performance exhaust system that's tuned and fitted to that engine so you can realize maximum performance. This comprehensive book is your guide to achieving ultimate exhaust system performance. It shows you how to fabricate a system for custom applications and to fit the correct prefabricated system to your car. No other book on the market is solely dedicated to fabricating and fitting an exhaust system in high-performance applications.
