How to choose A Perfect Exhaust System for Nissan Titan

To choose an exhaust system you must make considerations on the way you drive, where you live, and what you like. The following points are good things to consider when you are comparing exhaust systems.

Will it fit my truck?

It does not matter how great an exhaust system is, or how great it claims to be at increasing your truck power if the system does not fit. You need to get the measurements of the system you are running, the measurements under your vehicle, and then compare them to the measurements of the exhaust system you are considering.

This sounds time consuming, but it is far better to measure twice than it is to have to return an exhaust system and start your search all over again.

Is it Road Legal?

You need to know if the system you are considering is road legal according to the noise ordinances in your city and state. Having a great system is not a benefit if you cannot drive the vehicle without getting a ticket.

Where do the Exhaust Pipes Exit

The location of the exiting exhaust people can change the look of your truck, and sometimes these popes can interfere with other key elements of your truck. Make sure you understand how the pipe exits from beneath your truck.

Are Tips Included

When you are shopping for an exhaust system to make your vehicle look more aggressive you likely will want an aggressive looking tip on the exhaust pipe. When you read the details of a system check to see if a tip is included in the package you are buying.

Pipe Size

The size of the pipes that carry the exhaust into and out of the system will make a big difference in the sound and look of the exhaust system. You do not want pipes that are less than 2.25” in diameter, and 3” is normally the largest diameter you will find.

Is it easy to install?

If you get a new exhaust system you want one that is easy to install. You want a system that installs with standard hand tools that you probably already own. You also want to buy one that comes complete with all of the nuts, bolts, clamps, and new hangers that you are going to need during the installation process.

While you are thinking about the installation process check your vehicle warranty to see if changing systems will void your warranty. Sometimes the warranty will let you change systems only if you hire someone certified by the manufacturer to install the new system.

Final Note

Buying an exhaust system that provides you with a freer exhaust flow can increase the horsepower of your engine by 15 to 25. Factory installed exhaust is very restrictive so the car is quieter and those exhaust restrictions restrict the power of your engine.

Those restrictions also make your vehicle use more gas per mile. If you change to a better exhaust system you can save money on gas and have a vehicle that is stronger.
