Straight Through Exhaust
We get many requests from people who have been on forums and ask us that they want a straight through exhaust, this can be somewhat confusing for a lot of people, having a straight through exhaust usually means there are no mufflers installed in the system. From the catalytic converter to the tailpipe, it’s just a single tube.
A significant drawback of a straight-through exhaust system is that there is no sound control. Some vehicles can become impossible to drive. The logic of having a straight through exhaust is to vacate the gases quickly, leading to increased performance; however, there has to be a balance between performance and sound. Another drawback of a straight-through exhaust is drone; this is the nasty booming sound that can resonate loudly at specific rev ranges.
At profusion Customs, we can build you a straight through exhaust system with specialist mufflers that can control the sound but not hinder the performance. Some people opt for a muffler delete thinking that by removing the muffler they can increase the performance; however, they have also removed any sound control. We see the same customers asking us to reinstall silences because the exhaust company they went to advised them to do so, great for the exhaust company a simple job however costly test for the driver.
