At Toyota of Clermont, we’ve created a simple to follow guide on this essential auto part!

Toyota of Clermont exhaust system

Different types of exhaust systems

Clermont Toyota vehicles can be equipped with different types of exhaust systems that give vehicles different characteristics regarding fuel efficiency and performance. Each system includes a catalytic converter to filter fumes from fuel emissions, but all provide different benefits. Here are the five types of exhaust systems found in different Clermont Toyota vehicles:

  • Single Exit Pipe

The most common form of type of exhaust and found in many mass production vehicles. To see if a Clermont Toyota vehicle has a single exit pipe exhaust system, look to the rear and you can typically see a single pipe to the left or right side, below the bumper.

  • Dual Rear Exit

To give your Clermont Toyota a sportier look, this system uses two tail pipes and a louder, more aggressive sound. Using a straight pipe design, it expels waste more efficiently and creates a rumbling affect when the engine starts.

  • Opposite Dual Exhaust

Used on heavier vehicles like trucks and SUVs, opposite dual exhaust systems wrap around the rear wheels of the Clermont Toyota vehicle to add an extra layer to the gas filtering process. This system emits less residue and keeps whatever you’re towing clean.

  • Dual Side Exhaust

This system is a mix between single and dual by using two tail pipes on one side. This can give your vehicle the sound of a dual exhaust system without the higher price tag.

  • High Performance

It may have a larger price tag, but this system does a great job of filtering gas. It’s not typically found in stock Clermont Toyota models and is usually purchased aftermarket. High performance systems include benefits like pressure reduction, better filtration, and overall enhanced performance. If this is an option you want to consider for your vehicle, it requires a change of the engine manifold and, therefore, a higher price tag.
