Rules of thumb? Pipe Diameter?

On the previous article, the pipe diameter is one of the main key to select best suit exhaust system for your vehicle, But, how do we choose the best dimensions that suit to our need??

The quick and easy way to choose what diameter pipe you will need from the headers to the mufflers is to go back to the old rule of thumb, that for every 100 horsepower = 1” of total pipe diameter is needed across the system. For example, a 500 horsepower engine needs a 2.5″ dual exhaust (2.5″ x 2 = 5″). This, of course, is a rough estimate, and there are several complex mathematical formulas to help you discover the “perfect” size of pipe to use.

Our team had done several tests, researches for this calculation, the result is shown astable below:
