Catalytic converters are the standard for most vehicles in most states. They are one of the most important parts of a car’s emission control system. It is responsible for turning hazardous toxins into harmless gases. The standard OEM catalytic converter causes some backpressure to happen, which hinders the ultimate performance of your vehicle. We here at Vivid Racing suggest buying a high flow test pipe or a high flow catalytic converter to replace the OEM version. We carry high flow catalytic converters and test pipes from the top manufacturers in the performance exhaust industry, so rest assured that you are getting only the best.
Test pipes, also known as cat delete pipes or straight pipes, do not contain a catalytic converter. The performance of your vehicle greatly increases with the introduction of a cat test pipe to the exhaust system. A test pipe is essentially just a piece of tubing with the correct flanges welded on to be a direct replacement for a catalytic converter. Whereas the catalytic converter changes some of your vehicle’s exhaust toxins into harmless gases, a test pipe allows the pollutants to flow straight out of the tailpipe. The most common reason for installing a test pipe is because the cats can be a large restriction in a car’s exhaust system; removing it can free up noticeable amounts of power and performance.
Now that you have taken care of your exhaust pipes, be sure to take a look at your intake system too. Vivid Racing can help. We carry an extensive collection of cold air intakes, short air intakes and all the accessories you can imagine to go along with them. Just do a quick search on our site, or contact us today!
