You are a fan of turbocharged gasoline engines? Then you have something of the Screamer Pipe that delivers the right sound for the visual presentation and reduces the exhaust back pressure. What you need a screamer pipe (wastegate pipe) for and what you should pay attention to can be found in the following article. A screamer pipe is a type of exhaust system that can be installed in addition to your external wastegate. The exhaust of your vehicle is not passed on into the main exhaust pipe, as is the case with a conventional system. The exhaust gases flow out directly through an unmuffled exhaust pipe, and with significantly less back pressure and turbulence. The Screamer Pipe also transforms your car into a real soundmobile with an addictive factor - as long as the right engine is under the hood.
Function and technology of the Screamer Pipe
The Screamer Pipe is installed on your external wastegate and prevents the exhaust gases from flowing out through the catalytic converter and the silencer, where the back pressure is known to occur. The exhaust gases are instead discharged directly through the sound of unattenuated exhaust pipe into the environment. The so-called Screamer Pipe thus ensures a great deal of noise and a high noise level in the gas in combination with a performance increase due to the improved back pressure. The racing driver feeling is guaranteed.
Is the installation of a sreamer pipe legal?
In many countries, however, strict noise regulations prevail and these prohibit the installation of a screamer pipe. Even on racetracks, the Screamer Pipe is not always a welcome guest. The racetrack operators must also adhere to the current specifications and conditions and are often not allowed to allow vehicles with integrated screamer pipe. In any case you should check very carefully what the purpose should be and where the vehicle will be used later.
Advantages of installing a sreamer pipe
You will definitely be heard when you add a screamer pipe to your vehicle. The racing driver feeling is enhanced by the sound effect and you can indulge your own personal driving experience. With the help of additional components, you are able to get a little more power out of your vehicle if you use a screamer pipe. In our opinion, however, there is no real understandable and "necessary" argument for using the Screamer Pipe.
Disadvantages of installing a screamer pipe
TÜV is one with a built-in Screamer Pipe should not get, because the installation of the pipe is illegal and therefore can not be registered. You should only opt for the installation if you are in a country with the corresponding positive regulations. For this you can inform yourself extensively on the Internet. But we are of the opinion that a move to Pakistan, India or Mongolia due to a Screamer Pipe is rather disproportionate ^ ^ At the end... The installation of a Screamer Pipe has no meaning in Germany, since the noise protection regulations and the environmental regulations do not allow use. You can also achieve more power more easily and in other ways. But you will not remain unrecognized with the Screamer Pipe, because the noise level development is enormous. The exhaust gases enter the environment undamped and are discharged without catalyst (see our video). The installation of a Screamer Pipe only makes sense if you can use it unhindered and legally but this is almost impossible.
