If you’re looking for ways to improve your 100 Series LandCruiser’s performance, then you’ll quickly notice that most improvements focus on the front end, such as cold air intakes, supercharger, and turbocharger systems and upgraded internal engine components. But what you may not be aware of, is that the best way to improve performance is by getting a 100 Series Landcruiser exhaust upgrade. Here’s why.
The spent exhaust gases that are a result of your engine’s combustion will leave your vehicle faster and more efficiently thanks to the 100 Series LandCruiser exhaust upgrade. Furthermore, your engine will get cleaner, cooler air, which is crucial for it to burn fuel at an optimum rate. These two things alone result in improved performance and fuel economy, but there are more ways an aftermarket system can benefit your LandCruiser.
For example, your stock catalytic converter can be restricting. In the past, many gear heads opted to take the catalytic converter out of the system to reduce weight and improve performance, but nowadays, catalytic converters are required by law, otherwise, you’ll fail your emission tests. In order to survive, aftermarket exhaust system manufacturers have adapted and now manufacture high-flow catalytic converters that are made of more lightweight materials, and are more efficient at what they do.
Furthermore, your stock mufflers are built with the goal of reducing the noise that comes out of your exhaust. While this may not be a priority for most, there are some people who prefer their LandCruiser to have a more aggressive exhaust note. Aftermarket exhaust mufflers can make your vehicle’s sound deeper or higher pitched – depending on what you prefer.
And lastly, your stock exhaust tip will look like every other LandCruiser exhaust tip out there. Again, some people won’t mind, but others may want to make their LandCruiser more personalised. Aftermarket exhaust tips come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and finishes. You can get a chrome, stainless steel, carbon fibre or black exhaust tip to make your vehicle stand out from the crowd.
Regardless of what your reasons for upgrading your exhaust system may be, you’ll get a more durable and better performing system that will likely outlast your LandCruiser. Aftermarket exhaust systems are made using aluminised, T304 or T409 stainless steel, all of which are incredibly strong and are rust-resistant materials – features that will allow you to drive your LandCruiser in rough terrain with peace of mind.
