Author's Note: Does a dual exhaust system improve your car's performance?
I had an inkling that dual exhaust systems did some good, given that I know how engines work in a basic way. It seemed like clearing out the exhaust as fast as possible would give you a bit of an edge. But often when I research questions like this, I turn out to be dead wrong. But not this time! For once, I knew what I was talking about. True dual exhaust works, and fake systems are no better than good luck charms. They might even be more useless. Pardon me while I go perform my "I was right for once" dance.
