What Is a 1980 Mustang Cat Back Exhaust?The catalytic convertor, often referred to as “cat,” is connected to one end of the mid-pipe. It works as a filter so that less harmful gasses make their way into the atmosphere. The section of the exhaust beyond the catalytic converter is referred to as a “cat back.”
Installing a new cat back exhaust can a simple project, or it can be the first step in a complete exhaust upgrade. With a new cat back exhaust, a nominal increase in output can be achieved.
Why Upgrade Your Cat Back Exhaust System?A 1980 Mustang cat back exhaust is a system of pipes that connect to the outlet of the catalytic converter. It is made up of a pipe, a muffler and an end pipe or exhaust tip. Upgrading each of these components has its own set of benefits:
• Pipe section – An exhaust pipe of a specific diameter attaches to the outlet of the catalytic converter, and the diameter you choose has a direct impact on horsepower.
• Muffler – The muffler is the wide section of pipe that is visible when you look under the rear of your Mustang, and it’s used to soften the exhaust note. Without a muffler, the exhaust noise would be extremely loud, and in some cases, not under legal limits.
• End pipe or exhaust tip – This is the part of the exhaust that sticks out of the muffler. A larger diameter tip will produce a low pitch, while a smaller diameter will produce a higher pitch.
