Pacesetter refers to the brand or the company that specializes in the manufacture of performance exhaust components, particularly headers. It has a wide exhaust components product range that covers truck, SUVs and race cars. Its products feature mandrel-bent tubing with thick steel flanges. Pacesetter manufactures exhaust pipes, mufflers, catalytic converters and headers. All of these products undergo rigorous product quality testing to assure their durability and dependability under different conditions. A header is a simple yet effective accessory that can be installed in an automobile engine to increase its performance in terms of power, torque and speed. Headers allow increase in output without the need for pumping extra fuel. Hence, headers optimize fuel consumption and provide extra mileage.
Headers maximize engine output by eliminating or at least reducing backpressure. Backpressure causes power loss in an engine by preventing the pistons to maximize compression. Backpressure occurs when there is a back flow of exhaust gas during exhaust stroke. Hence, when it is time for the piston to begin compression, the excess exhaust gas is compressed along with the fuel/air mixture. This creates a problem because when the fuel is ignited, thermal energy is not maximized due to low oxygen concentration. Consequently, power stroke is compromised. There is no enough thermal energy to push the piston to optimal force. Backpressure occurs when there is a large volume of exhaust gas attempting to exit in a narrow channel.
Typically, the exhaust manifold is too small for large volume of exhaust gas at rapid speed to escape freely. Headers solve the problem of backpressure by allowing exhaust gas to escape more freely. A Header is connected to the exhaust manifold of the engine. It provides extra room for the exhaust gas to escape. A header is comprised of tubes that merge into one big tube. In effect, headers are actually tail pipes with many exits. Headers are typically used in race cars. Some states prohibit the use of headers in streets. Vehicles with headers emit more pollution because their exhausts bypass the catalytic converter.
