When installing a set of headers, it’s common practice to install a set of mid-pipes as well; however, mid-pipes can be coupled with the rest of the factory exhaust setup. Mid-pipes can typically be had with or without catalytic converters fitted. Additionally, mid-pipes differ in variety with some including a true dual design, whereas others use an X-pipe as pictured above. It is controversial whether an X or dual design provides better overall performance. Regardless, either design will yield positive performance gains as opposed to the factory system that snakes its way around and reduces exhaust flow.

With less exhaust gas flow, the piston has to work extra hard to push exhaust gases out of the cylinder, which ultimately leads to reduced power output for your car. If your car’s exhaust components are failing, you’ll likely see a decrease in fuel mileage and your car might not pass vehicle emissions tests. Exhaust components such as the catalytic converter play a crucial role in decreasing the emissions output of your vehicle, and shouldn’t be removed for any vehicle which is used on the road.

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.
