Re: Turn down Exhaust

I only turned mine down because I prefer the look.

Not sure if there's a benefit or not.

Re: Turn down Exhaust

nope, its all for looks and the sound echo that they catch when its idling!!..that small of a bend is not going to rob gobs or torque from your car!!

Are you talking about turndowns instead of mufflers?

Re: Turn down Exhaust

from what I hear turndowns at the muffler with no tail pipes can cause an annoying resonance inside the car as well as blowing dust up at stop lights. The only benefits I see are hiding the exhaust and not having to add tailpipes........esp tough with aftermarket rear suspensions.

Re: Turn down Exhaust

Do you mean turn downs before the axle? It would be better to turn them to the side to avoid gas fumes rising...either way you're going to have fume problems (I did).

Or do you mean turn downs right at the bumper after the rear tires?

Re: Turn down Exhaust

No Offence to anyone but....My biggest memory of turndowns are of a 1968 Camaro I was watching going thru the Turkey Runs at Daytona Speedway. I watched how the exhaust sandblasted the car going thru the paved road with dirt on the surface. Then he turned down a full dirt access road and the car was engulfed with dirt............that was enough for me.....I guess it depends on where you go..........I did like sound though with a radical cam
