If you have long tube headers, you may wonder how to quiet them down. I have long tube headers on my 2016 WRX STS, with active axle backs and 18+cell cats. I have no problem achieving maximum performance on the track, but I have reached the noise limit when on the road. To quiet the exhaust, I installed a resonator between the headers and the 100cell cats. To do so, I cut three-inch pipes and connected them to the cats and axle back.
How to avoid buying different mufflers
If you have been thinking of installing a set of long tube headers, you’ve probably wondered how to avoid buying different mufflers. While the stock exhaust is very restrictive, headers are not. While they may appear to be the best option, you can still get the same effect with a different set of mufflers. Here are a few suggestions.
Firstly, you need to understand what these pipes do. Headers are usually referred to as primary header pipes because they connect directly to the exhaust ports. Choosing the correct pipe diameter will depend on a number of factors, including engine size and horsepower, as well as intended use. While it may be tempting to purchase larger header pipes for your hot rod, you should consider the amount of power your vehicle will be producing and the intended use of the car.
Headers are a crucial part of the exhaust system. Their design and makeup will have a huge impact on the way your vehicle performs on the road. Headers may help you achieve more horsepower and torque while cruising. While they may not make your car sound like a rocket, they will increase your car’s performance and enjoyment. There are two basic types of headers, but each has a unique design and a different sound.
