What's more impressive for a pickup owner than shooting a big black cloud into the sky? If you believe the Youtube videos from the US, nothing! The latest hit for pickup drivers are high-pipe exhaust pipes. But can the vertical tailpipes look more than just cool?
What can high-pipe exhaust pipes do?
The highpipes don't just look hardcore - they actually serve a purpose. An upward exhaust increases the performance of your pickup significantly. Before you start spending your hard-earned cash on a new exhaust system, however, you want to know how the vertical tailpipes work. That's why we have all the information you need before you make an important purchase decision.
High and low pressure
Whether operated by fireplaces, incinerators or boilers, vertical exhaust pipes make use of the stacking effect. This concept is based on buoyancy through buoyancy pressure. In other words, the stacking effect relies on an exhaust or stack that aids in the delivery of heated and contaminated air to the exterior of the structure. When hot air is surrounded with higher pressure from cooler air at lower pressure, the hot air rises. Due to the fact that the air does not move on its own, the stack effect uses a heat generator to expand the air. When the air is sufficiently heated and the pressure is high enough, the air is forced upwards and expelled from the tailpipe. Subsequently, colder air flows after. Thus, the cycle is repeated.
Benefits of high-pipe exhaust systems
Some people think it's cool. And we have to say that the upgraded, rustic appearance is the main advantage of this form of exhaust system. The additional performance is not worth the time or financial investment.
Disadvantages of high-pipe exhaust systems
You have to cut a hole through the loading area, this will lose space. In addition, the sawn-in hole offers additional attack surface for rust. The exhaust becomes hot. This means that even more space is lost, as everything has to be placed on the loading area at a certain distance from the tailpipe. Exhaust gases find their way into the driver's cab more easily. If the pick-up is to be sold one day, the highpipe exhaust could put off potential buyers.
High-pipe exhausts are not for everyone. We could not find really rational arguments for buying. For the people who want to attract attention and also want to gain additional performance, a high-pipe tailpipe is an absolute must.
