Know Everything About Single Exhaust VS. Dual Exhaust

If you are considering a new exhaust system for your vehicle there are a number of things to consider. One of the main things you’ll need to decide is if you want to go with a single or dual exhaust system.

Single Exhaust Systems

A single exhaust uses a single pipe to route the exhaust gases out of the vehicle. Single exit exhausts come factory-equipped in most vehicles. You can also try the VCM VE Commodore V8 OTR Intake kit from Black Ops Performance for unrivaled quality and performance for your vehicle.

There are a number of benefits to a new single exhaust, such as:

  • it’s lightweight
  • lower cost when it comes to replacing or modifying
  • increased gas velocity (the speed at which gas travels along a car exhaust pipe)
  • easier to replace — because these systems are more readily available

Depending on the single exhaust system that you choose, you can also benefit from:

  • improved sound
  • increased horsepower
  • increased fuel economy

Dual Exhaust Systems

The main difference between a single and dual exhaust system is that the dual exhaust system has two exit points instead of one. 

Therefore, it is able to push out twice as much exhaust more quickly because it’s not limited to a single pipe. 

This is the main benefit of a dual exhaust system because the more exhaust you can push out, the more air your engine can take in, increasing your vehicle’s horsepower. Other benefits of a dual exhaust system are: 

  • increased style – there are a number of different options when it comes to dual exhaust systems, whether it’s a dual real exit or cat-back exhaust, the style options are endless.
  • increased fuel economy
  • enhanced sound
  • helps to keep your engine cool
