CUSTOM PERFORMANCE EXHAUST
A motor vehicle exhaust system is piping used to guide exhaust gasses away from the engine to the outdoors. Although the exhaust system's main purpose is to guide exhaust gases from the engine to the outdoors, it can be modified to increase engine power, reduce pollution, and reduce noise. To achieve this, you need to invest in a custom-made exhaust system.
At Collins Muffler & Service we can create a custom-made stainless steel exhaust for your vehicle. We specialize in custom performance exhaust systems, stainless steel mufflers, mufflers, exhaust kits, racing mufflers, and exhaust accessories for a huge and diverse range of vehicles: customized cars, standard road cars, classic cars, kit cars, 4x4's, imports, and racecars.
A normal muffler should not be loud. In fact, engine sound is quieted as it passes through the muffler. This is achieved by an intricate maze design within the muffler that helps to cancel out high pressure engine sound before exiting through the tailpipe. Over time, rust and road damage eventually create holes in the muffler. An exhaust leak can occur over time leading to more noise from the vehicle. if your exhaust system isn’t working properly, exhaust may be entering your car. If you notice that your car is louder than normal, muffler repair may be needed. To be sure, bring your car to Collins Muffler & Service.

The catalytic converter, part of your vehicle's exhaust system, uses chemical catalysts such as platinum, palladium, and rhodium to reduce the harmful emissions from your tailpipe. A failed emissions test could indicate a problem with the catalytic converter, and a "rotten egg" smell is a common symptom as well. Rattling, reduced engine performance, and diminished fuel economy may also be signs of a problem with the converter, and a converter problem is one of the most common reasons for a "check engine" light.
When the catalytic converter is damaged or no longer effective, it is removed and a new one is installed in your exhaust system. A catalytic converter is legally required on most road vehicles and is necessary to pass the periodic emissions tests that many state governments require. Problems with the catalytic converter can also cause your vehicle to overheat, creating a fire hazard under the vehicle.
