Get superior performance from your Dodge Dakota engine with a custom exhaust system from CARiD. Carefully designed to boost horsepower and torque, Dodge Dakota custom exhausts work by maximizing exhaust flow to reduce backpressure, which consumes a good percentage of the power generated by the engine. This is a common problem in stock exhaust systems, and the Dakota stock exhaust is no different. Its size and design is restrictive and slows down the flow of exhaust gases, leading to a build-up of spent gases and high backpressure, which costs the engine a chunk of its power. CARiD’s rich offering of MagnaFlow, Gibson, MBRP and Flowmaster exhaust systems for the Dakota will help beat this problem. You can supplement the exhaust system with custom headers, mufflers or pipes from these brands for an extra 10-20hp. When choosing, go for the exhaust systems and components built for your Dakota model and engine size in order to get the greatest power and torque gains and avoid fitment problems.

One of the primary effects of a custom exhaust is overall engine efficiency. As the engine gives more power, it also burns fuel more effectively, leading to greater fuel economy. The average Dakota custom exhaust will increase your mpg by 1 or 2. Other than fuel savings, a custom exhaust also helps you save money. Our custom exhausts are affordable, and with our constant discounts, the price goes down even further. But the greatest plus for you is that they offer real value where cheap exhausts don’t. Each comes with a lifetime or limited lifetime warranty, which should give you peace of mind for years to come. Additionally, they are all made from hardwearing stainless steel which doesn’t rust or wear out. The mechanism used to join the exhaust components together leaves no room for leaks. Altogether, these are inconveniences you won’t have to worry about with any of the Dakota exhaust systems from CARiD.

      Are Headers Worth The Performance Improvement?
      Engines have often been compared to air pumps, because the engine that’s most efficient in terms of economy and power is the one that can get air in and out of its cylinders the easiest. That’s why most performance modifications like conical air filters, cold air intake systems, headers, and cat-back exhaust systems are aimed at making the intake and exhaust systems less restrictive. These parts increase the flow of air into the engine and ease the flow of exhaust gas out of the engine. Among these components, headers may be the most difficult to install. In this article, we’ll discuss what headers do, their different types, and how much performance they can add to your car.
    • Performance Exhaust Systems
      Are X-pipes and H-pipes Better Than Straight Pipes on Dual Exhaust Systems?
      You may be wondering why so many aftermarket performance exhaust system manufacturers are offering dual exhaust systems connected by "H-pipe" or "X-pipe" sections. After all, aren't two separate pipes, or so-called "true duals", the best for performance? The answer is no, but to understand why we have to examine how a typical internal combustion engine works.

      Power, Sound, Looks | Can I Have It All With a Cat-Back Exhaust System?
      It's an age-old question that many have asked. Will an aftermarket exhaust be worth the expense? While they definitely can be, an important question to ask yourself is do you care more about the deeper sound they’re designed to produce, or the added performance gained from being less restrictive? As car enthusiasts, we’ve become accustomed to associating the sound of a car with its exhaust. After all, doesn’t everyone have a childhood memory or two of a car and the particular sound it made?

      Pickup Truck Cab And Bed Sizes Are Important When Selecting Accessories
      Americans love to have choices. Buying a dress shirt? Decide solid or stripe, short or long sleeve, cotton or poly blend, button or spread collar, regular fit, slim fit, or big & tall. How about a meal at your favorite steak house? Will it be porterhouse, T-bone, or sirloin? Cooked rare, medium-rare, or medium? With baked, mashed, or French fried potatoes? Thirsty for a fancy cup of coffee? Let's not even get started on options that let you end up with a "grande caramel macchiato with 1% low-fat milk, 2 Splendas, and an extra espresso shot".

      Direct Fit vs. Universal Mufflers
      Regardless of whether you're shopping for a simple replacement muffler that delivers original equipment (OE) sound and performance or an upgraded muffler which provides a deeper growl with increased power through freer exhaust flow, you'll see choices between "direct fit" mufflers and "universal" mufflers. In this article, we'll help you understand the differences between these two styles so you can make a more informed purchase.
