Learn more about the parts of exhaust system in your engine using these hands-on exhaust system diagrams in best quality! In these 101 Diagramss, the parts of some types of exhaust system are explained in pictures. We’ll start by giving you the exhaust system converter diagram of below.
An exhaust system is usually piping used to guide reaction exhaust gases away from a controlled combustion inside an engine or stove. The entire system conveys burnt gases from the engine and includes one or more exhaust pipes. In most motorcycles all or most of the exhaust system is visible and may be chrome plated as a display feature. Aftermarket exhausts may be made from steel, aluminium, titanium, or carbon fiber. In many truck/lorries all or most of the exhaust system is visible. See some parts of the system in the following exhaust system diagrams below.

The exhaust manifold attaches to the cylinder head and takes each cylinders exhaust and combines it into one pipe. The manifold can be made of steel, aluminum, stainless steel, or more commonly cast iron. The muffler serves to quiet the exhaust down to acceptable levels. Most mufflers use baffles to bounce the exhaust around dissipating the energy and quieting the noise. Some mufflers also use fiberglass packing which absorbs the sound energy as the gases flow through. Between all of the above mention parts is the exhaust pipe which carries the gas through it’s journey out your tail pipe. Exhaust tubing is usually made of steel but can be stainless steel (which lasts longer due to it’s corrosion resistance) or aluminized steel tubing. Aluminized steel has better corrosion resistance than plain steel but not better than stainless steel. It is however cheaper than stainless steel.
