Exhaust services we offer:
- Standard mufflers & systems
- Catalytic converters
- Flange Plates
- Pipe bending
- Flexible couplings
- Performance (See our Extreme Exhausts section)
We can source a complete range of standard fitment exhaust parts and keep a lot of common part numbers in stock. We can fit exhaust systems to all makes and models of vehicles - European, Asian, American and Australian cars, commercials and 4x4s.
With our expertise in custom bending, even if there are no pre-made systems available, we can make one to suit. This is ideal for vintage, classic or custom car enthusiasts.
Small trucks, tractors or stationary machinery can also be catered for.
With the exception of some 4x4's and commercials, most vehicles manufactured from January 1986 on, by law, must be fitted with a catalytic converter.
'Cat converters' as they are commonly known, are an important part of the vehicles emission control system. They consist of a thick stainless steel body shell, with either a ceramic or metalic internal substrate. This internal substrate is best described as a brick with a series of holes or channels running straight through, sometimes said to look a bit like honeycomb. The brick is coated with a number of precious metals such as palladium and rhodium.
At the correct temperature, as exhaust gases flow through the substrate, a chemical reaction occurs, resulting in a more environmentally friendly gas.
There are many different types of converters in modern times, now even many diesel cars and trucks.
If the catalytic converter has deteriorated or is damaged, it can seriously upset the performance of the vehicle. In some instances the vehicle won't even be able to be driven and will need to be towed to us for further diagnostics.
