Exhaust Emissions


Exhaust Emission is the unburned gases emitted when gasoline gets burned.

  • The exhaust system collects, quiets, and cleans the exhaust gases from the engine. The system carries the gases to the rear of the car and discharges them into the air. The exhaust system includes the exhaust manifold, exhaust pipe, catalytic converter, muffler, resonator, and tail pipe. 
  • Each bank of cylinders in a V-type engine has an exhaust manifold. The two exhaust pipes may join and connect to a single catalytic converter. Exhaust gas flows out of the catalytic converter through a muffler and resonator. This is called an exhaust system
  • Some cars with V-type engines have a dual exhaust system. There are two separate exhaust systems, one for each cylinder bank, A crossover piper connects the two inlet pipes to help reduce noise. The dual exhaust system improves engine breathing by alliwng it to exhaust more freely, Increased engine power results.
