The truck has diverse systems that work in harmony to make it run. This makes the truck highly comparable to the human body. In order for a person to live well, all of the systems must be running smoothly. Just the same, the truck needs to have all of its systems operating in good condition. So if a person has the circulatory system, the truck has the engine and the ignition system. Since people eat, they need to digest what they consumed so that waste could be eliminated.
The fuel system pumps petrol from the tank to the engine. Older cars used to have carburetors that mix fuel with air and send the gas to the engine. Some cars have a special fuel injection system that sprays petrol into the engine. Modern cars have turbo chargers that suck in extra air and therefore create more power.
Unfortunately, old age eventually comes regardless of what you do to hold it at bay. Auto parts fail and will need to be replaced. Below, I’ll give you a list of the components you can expect to replace down the road.
Drivability is not adversely affected. Interior noise level depends on the exhaust system you choose. Some will make it far louder; some will actually make it quieter. But most are just a little bit louder than stock. But the added dBs are also combined with a MUCH sweeter exhaust note, so it’s definitely worth it. And the interior of the Supra is pretty quiet anyway, so on the highway, it will be VERY livable. As far as low-end power goes, the down-pipe will greatly decrease Turbo Lag. So low-end power and response is much improved over stock.
The Tanabe Hyper Medallion, the discontinued Tanabe G-Power Medallion and the GReddy (SP) Street Performance seem to be the quietest. At anything less than full throttle, they are no louder than stock. But at full throttle they seem to “wake up” a bit.
So the term cat-back refers to all parts of the exhaust system between the outlet of the catalytic converter recyclers or cat and the outside air. This usually means a series of pipes, one or more mufflers, and perhaps exhaust tips.
Your brake pads have a consumable surface called the lining. This surface presses against the rotors when you engage your brakes to bring your vehicle to a stop. Even though it is heat-resistant and resilient, the surface wears away with use. When the lining becomes worn, it exposes a small metal piece that rubs against the rotors. This creates a squeal that indicates the brake pads need to be replaced.
You have to cut the tube on either sides of the converter. Use the reciprocating saw as well as the metal blades. Leave an allowance of 2 inches of tubing on the ends of the converter for the needed spacing. Allow the catalytic converter to fall by its own self but make sure you are not underneath it when it falls.
