Exhaust Headers

There are many types of headers, but one should know, why headers or Catless headers are used in vehicles? Headers are basically used to improve the engine’s performance, it’s the easiest bolt-on accessory for improving your car’s engine. ... Exhaust headers make easier for the engine to push exhaust gases out of the cylinders. According to the thermodynamic theory, the four-stroke cycle in “How Car Engines Work”, you will notice that the engine produces all of its power during the stroke. However, the gasoline in the cylinder burns and expands during this power stroke, generating a lot of power. And, the other three strokes are necessary or required to make the stroke possible. If these three power strokes consume a lot of power, they are a drain on the engine.

During the exhaust headers stroke, there is a better way for an engine to lose power, which is through back pressure. The exhaust valve opens at the beginning of the exhaust power stroke, and then the piston pushes the exhaust gases out of the cylinder with the help of car headers. And, if there is any resistance that the piston has to push, to force the exhaust gases out of the cylinder, the power or energy is wasted. Imagine using two exhaust valves rather than one, it will definitely improve the flow of gas by making the hole. Thus, making the exhaust gases travel through a larger area.

In a normal engine, once the gases exit the exhaust headers they end up in the exhaust manifold. Typically in a four-cylinder or eight-cylinder engine, there are four cylinders using the same exhaust manifold. From the manifold, the exhaust gases flow into one pipe toward the catalytic converter and the ¬muffler, remember when I say catalytic converter, it means I’m not talking about the Catless headers. Exhaust manifold can be an important source of back pressure because exhaust gases flow from one cylinder, build up the pressure in the exhaust manifold then moves to the next cylinder.

The main idea behind the exhaust headers is to eliminate the exhaust manifold's back pressure. Instead of a common manifold that all of the cylinders share, each cylinder gets its own exhaust pipe. These cylinder pipes come together in a long and larger pipe called the collector. These individual long pipes are cut and bent so that each one is the same length as the others. By making them the same size, it guarantees that each cylinder's exhaust gases arrive in the collector spaced out equally so there is no back pressure generated by the cylinders sharing the collector.

Improving your vehicle’s engine performance is a never-ending task, don’t you think? Of course, as long as your car improves, then why not? If you're low on budget and want to improve your car performance by applying vital steps of modification, then begin by installing quality car headers in your car, and you should prioritize exhaust headers to be topmost in your list. In simple words, long tube headers or short tube headers remove anti-performance exhaust dirt from your car, making sure your engine's potential is optimized.

Along with a high-performance cold air intake and high-flow of air through the filter, the exhaust headers reduce back pressure for air to flow more easily out of the engine through cylinders. The Headers work by providing each cylinder with its own mini exhaust pipe and piping exhaust pulses away from the cylinder head into a downstream exhaust collector, improving air intake and exhaust.

Headers come in different sizes and shapes with hundreds of applications to suit your particular vehicle needs. The top manufacturers produce their own exhaust headers in various configurations, especially tuning each to fit the type of engine it is made for. So, whether you have an imported or domestic vehicle of whatever brand, there's an exhaust header just for you. Do you know the difference between long tube headers and short tube headers?

Long tube headers
Long tube headers build a ton of power in the mid to high RPM range. They are the best option for high-end vehicles. But, the long tube headers are difficult to install in vehicle. All the extra space they need inside the engine compartment may need an expensive reconfiguration.

Short headers
Short tube headers perform best in the idle to mid-RPM range. This makes them the perfect car headers that rely on low-RPM power.
