Default Dual Exhaust, How good are they?

Hi,

I just came acros to the following picture of dual Exhaust for ANHC.
Just want to know how efficeint are these.

How good the secondary exhaust will be in this type pf setup.
I think the 2nd one will not be as efficient as the 1st one, unless there is a "V" spliting the exhausts.

All depends on the shape of the muffler inside. Most of the exhaust will flow from the RHS tailpipe though.

Dual exhausts are great for V8 engines and other large capacity motors.

For a small 4 cylinder engine, such as the Honda City, it is purely cosmetic. In fact it just adds unnecessary weight to your vehicle.

So take your pick: Either make your car look faster, or actually go faster.

What you have shown is more of a 'dual muffler' set up and not really a dual exhaust.

The first one is terrible and the second one is nothing to bragg about. Both are not professional solutions. I would not want to have the box in the second picture on its own either.

Thats what I think , RHS will work more but at high revs there will be no exhaust thru LHS.

How about having a dual exhaut by from 2 clyinders on right and other 2 on the left? just 2 to 1?

this again will be better with a V[6/8] engine.
because you will have exhaust ports coming out of each side of the engine.

In our cars with transversely mounted engines, if you split both pipes, they might end up longer and be more restrictive.

Your car would be extremely sluggish in the low mid region with very low back pressure, but amazing top end.

You can do dual exhausts and still maintain exhaust velocity by using pipes of a lesser diameter. Backpressure is irrelevant, it's all about velocity. The cross section area of the pipes determines the airflow at peak exhaust velocity. Tune it for high amount of airflow and it will be bad at low RPM, tune it for medium amount of airflow and it will be restrictive at high RPM.

So, in all I should stick to single exhaust type.
Will be soon opting for a Universal Magnaflow muffler for my ANHC.

What model do you guys suggest? Few of the followings are my requirements

1. Should'nt be loud I just want a nice sound.
2. Have to take this car for shopping with family.
3. Have to drive daily to office.

And does the round mufflers sound different from Ovals?
