DOES SIZE MATTER?
why we choose 2 3/4'' OVER 3''
This is the most frequently asked question we get!
Exhaust systems are fitted to remove hot, noxious exhaust gases from your engine, reduce engine noise and reduce exhaust emissions. Most argue that the key to this improvement is to reduce exhaust back pressure, usually achieved by using larger-diameter tubing and free-flow mufflers. However, what’s actually required is to minimize the resistance to gas flow in order to keep the exhaust gas flowing as quickly as possible so that the burnt gases are efficiently extracted from the engine. This means that the saying ‘bigger is better’ is not always the case. In fact, the optimum diameter of the exhaust tubing varies according to the amount of exhaust gas being produced, which depends upon engine RPM and load. Smaller turbo diesel motors (2L-3.5L) don't require such large diameter exhausts. We have done vigorous testing on the smaller motors to get the best performance possible. With this research, we have used various sizes of tube and in most cases 2 3/4" comes out on top.
DPF DELETE PIPE?
We do not manufacture or supply any DPF delete pipes. As per the Australian and Emissions Standards, there are large fines for the owner of the vehicle and the company removing the DPF in any instance. If the car was manufactured with a DPF, it must remain on the vehicle to be roadworthy on all Australian roads. Removal will void any warranty claims with the manufacturer or any insurance claims.
DO BEAUDESERT EXHAUST SYSTEMS INCLUDE THE DUMP PIPE?
Yes, any of the systems for turbo diesel vehicles will come straight off the back of the turbo and therefore include the dump pipe (excluding vehicles fitted with diesel particulate filters (DPF)). We also include a provision (1/4″ gas BSP) to fit an EGT gauge on all of our dump pipes.
DO BEAUDESERT EXHAUST SYSTEMS INCLUDE A MUFFLER?
Yes, you will receive a perforated straight-through muffler that keeps noise levels to a minimum, and allows maximum flow through the system. Depending on the vehicle, your system may also include a resonator to further reduce noise levels.
CAN BEAUDESERT EXHAUST MAKE A SYSTEM FOR ANY TYPE OF VEHICLE?
We manufacture systems for most types of 4WDs. Please contact our office (07) 55412767 or send us an email [email protected] to find out if we can do yours!
WHAT KIND OF INCREASES CAN I EXPECT BY FITTING A BEAUDESERT EXHAUST SYSTEM?
Average customer feedback indicates you can experience a power increase of approximately 10-12% and an increase in fuel economy by up to 8-10 %. Vehicles fitted with a DPF range from approximately 5-6% increase in both power and fuel economy. These results will vary depending on how the vehicle is driven, what it is being used for and various aftermarket accessories.
HOW MUCH WILL AN AFTER-MARKET EXHAUST SYSTEM COST ME?
While our products are priced competitively we include the added value of service and, more importantly, quality. Please call or email us today for a quote for your vehicle.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MILD STEEL, ALUMINISED MILD STEEL AND STAINLESS STEEL?
Mild Steel is used on the original systems and is likely to rust and corrode quickly. Our systems are manufactured from the best quality Aluminised Mild Steel and Stainless Steel tube. Aluminised Mild Steel is a superior grade of Mild Steel. To be classified as Aluminised Mild Steel, cold rolled metal sheeting is hot-dip coated with an aluminium-silicon alloy. This process allows the steel to be far more resistant to corrosion and heat than normal mild steel. Stainless Steel is stronger and more corrosion-resistant again, and is recommended to customers who are doing a lot of beach work or water crossings.
WILL A CUSTOM OR AFTER-MARKET SYSTEM BE ANY LOUDER THEN THE STANDARD?
In short – No.
We use one or two mufflers on turbo diesels (depending on the vehicle) to ensure quietness. We mostly use a perforated straight-through muffler, which absorbs noise levels and cuts out any droning inside the cabin. On the petrol & non-turbo diesel vehicles we use two mufflers (again perforated and straight-through) and also a rear resonator just to cut out any excess noise and drone that these types of vehicles tend to emit.
AM I ABLE TO ORDER MY SYSTEM WITHOUT A MUFFLER?
Yes and No. We are able to replace the muffler section with a resonator if you wish for the system to have a deeper note. We can also supply a no muffler pipe for an additional cost, however this is an extra and is supplied with a full system including a muffler. This then gives you the option to swap between the two at your own discretion.
DO YOU FIT PERFORMANCE MODULES?
Yes! We supply and fit STEINBAUER modules! These modules work hand in hand with our exhaust systems to provide ultimate power and fuel economy.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO FIT THE SYSTEM?
The time it takes to fit the system will depend on the vehicle and how old it is. The hardest part is getting the old system off which can be fairly time consuming if nuts and bolts haven’t been undone in more than a decade! Generally these systems take approximately 4-5 hours to fit if there are no complications.
HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE MY SYSTEM FROM TIME OF ORDERING?
If your system is in stock, we can generally despatch it the same day. If not, lead-time is approximately 3-5 working days for Aluminised Mild Steel and 10-14 working days for Stainless Steel. After your system has left our despatch, delivery time will depend on your location.
WILL FITTED ACCESSORIES SUCH AS LONG-RANGE FUEL TANKS, SIDE STEPS OR GAS TANKS ETC. AFFECT INSTALLING A SYSTEM?
Our exhaust systems follow the same route as the original system and are made to suit standard, unmodified vehicles. Generally if your accessories (long range fuel tanks, extra water tanks, toolboxes, spare tyres, side steps, rear bars etc.) interfere with the original system then they will interfere with one of our systems. We manufacture alternative parts to suit some aftermarket accessories, however in some cases to overcome this problem the system may have to be fitted in our workshop so we can customise the route of the new system in this case additional labour & materials charges will apply.
HOW MUCH NOTICE SHOULD I GIVE TO MAKE AN IN-HOUSE BOOKING?
We prefer 5-10 days notice to make sure all parts for the system are manufactured before your arrival. If the system is in stock, and depending on how many other vehicles are booked for fitting that day, we may be able to fit you in straight away. Please contact our office to make a booking or send us an email to see which days we have available.
WILL THERE BE ANY FITTING INSTRUCTIONS IF I WANT TO FIT THE SYSTEM MYSELF?
We supply you with basic fitting instructions for all of our exhaust systems. When you order the system your sales consultant will advise you of the difficulty rating on fitting your chosen system. If you have any trouble with fitting the system please don’t hesitate to contact our office and speak to one of our experienced exhaust fitters.
WHAT IS THE WARRANTY ON A BEAUDESERT EXHAUST SYSTEM?
We offer a two year manufacturing warranty on our aluminised steel exhaust systems and a five year manufacturing warranty on our stainless steel exhaust systems. Steinbauer modules offer a three year extended warranty, and a 14 day no questions asked returns policy. Here at Beaudesert Exhaust we pride ourselves on our after sales service, generally if you have ANY issues with your system at all we will endeavour to solve the problem for you as quickly as possible no matter the age of the system. Please refer to our Warranty Information page for more information.
WILL MY WARRANTY BE VOID FOR ANY REASON?
Yes. Warranty claims will NOT be allowed if the system is incorrectly fitted, abused, modified or damaged in any way. The fitment of heat wrap products to extractors will also void your warranty. Please refer to our Warranty Information page for more information.
