Looking to upgrade the exhaust on my Porsche

Most car and truck manufacturers leave plenty of room for improvement when it comes to horsepower and torque. That’s not to say that these vehicles are poorly made, but many companies will choose the least expensive alternative when it comes to items such as exhaust systems. There is a huge market for people looking to upgrade their exhaust system, and there are a number of reasons why people choose to do so. If you are looking to upgrade the exhaust on your Porsche, then Pfaff Tuning has the parts and technicians to get the job done right!

Why get an aftermarket exhaust system installed on my Porsche?…

An aftermarket performance exhaust can free some of the power in your engine. These systems allow for a quicker, more efficient path for exhaust gases to escape. This means your engine “breathes” better, so spent fuel and air exit the combustion chambers faster. That means more fuel and air can be burned to create more power.

There are several other good reasons to add an aftermarket exhaust system. One of the most noticeable is the subtle, but distinctly aggressive, change in exhaust note. Many of the better systems are only slightly louder than your stock exhaust at idle, but they deepen to a low “growl” during acceleration.

What kind of exhaust system do I need?…

There are two types of bends used in making exhaust systems, and the type used makes a difference in the way air flows. The typical factory-made systems, as well as some aftermarket systems, use a “crush-bend” technique. This type of process creates a crinkled area in the pipes, which decreases the diameter and slows the exhaust gases. A “mandrel bend,” on the other hand, is smooth, so the pipe remains at a constant diameter through the bend. That means there’s less resistance, so you get more efficient airflow and better performance.

Another factor to consider is the material used to make the system. Most factory exhaust systems are made of mild steel, so they have a tendency to deteriorate over time. The better aftermarket systems are made using aluminized steel or stainless steel. Aluminized steel offers slightly better longevity than stock systems, while stainless systems are designed to last much longer, usually for the life of the car or truck.
