Performance Exhausts Work By (Pulse Tuning) Which Is The Use Of The Correct Pipe Lengths, Diameters And Correct Collector Configurations To Tune The Exhausts Pulses To Help To Fill And Scavenge The Cylinders. This Will Increase The Volumetric Efficiency, Which Will Intern Increase The Power And Torque. Therefore, Only Restrictive Exhausts Would Suffer Back Pressure.
