Your vehicle’s muffler, while not essential to the operation of your engine, is still a part that you will want to keep in good working order. The muffler attaches to your engine’s exhaust system output at the back of your car and helps to stifle engine noises. This way, you and your neighbours can enjoy a more quiet environment.
It is important to note, though, that the muffler can diminish the power and performance of your vehicle slightly, which is why many people choose to remove their mufflers or install aftermarket options. This is an area of automotive customisation that is highly regulated, so be sure to look into the requirements in your area regarding emissions and noise levels. Even if you are within regulations, you’ll still need to evaluate the trade-off between noise and performance.
