EXHAUST SERVICES AT STEVES AUTO CLINIC

Your Exhaust Specialists

 

Don’t let exhaust issues exhaust your patience. At Steves Auto Clinic we specialise in car care, maintenance, and upgrades. We have decades of experience when it comes to exhaust replacement, upgrades and even custom building an exhaust for you.

Exhaust centers and exhaust shops have become so commonplace in this day and age, that it tends to lose its human touch. The averageness of these centers and shops match their prices.

Technology has moved on over the years, and paying as little as possible for an exhaust system translates into you more than likely getting a noisy system that is generically bent and ultimately crimped closed on a pipe bender and welded to universal mild steel silencers.

With exhaust systems such as these, you get exactly what you are paying for, an average product. A little known fact is that Steves Auto Clinic has the exhaust facilities to offer you an above average service with a quality performance exhaust to suit most application.

From an entry level, mild steel, over the counter exhaust system, to a full stainless steel tailored performance exhaust system, we can do it. We even go one step better by having readymade bolt-on systems in stock for you.

In the future, remember that you can have a universally branded, direct non-performance replacement exhaust system installed at any of the Steves Auto Clinic branches, or even a mass-produced performance option supplied by us. You can indeed have this done anywhere else, but at Steves, you will get personalized and quality service that will be the start of a life-long relationship.

A Loud Exhaust

An unusual amount of noise from your exhaust system may indicate the presence of a break or a crack somewhere. It is very important to get this repaired as soon as possible.

 

Corrosion and a Loss of Engine Power

Acidic moisture is any exhaust’s enemy because it corrodes the exhaust. A corroded exhaust can lead to a leak and result in a decrease in engine power, acceleration, and fuel efficiency. Are you fed up with your mild steel exhaust that rust or corrode so fast? Bring your car to us at Steves Auto Clinic and replace it with a stainless steel system. A stainless steel system will cost you more but it will resist corrosion.

 

Hanging Exhaust Pipe

Rubber brackets that hold the exhaust pipes firmly in place, will degrade over time. When this happens, you may find that the exhaust system starts to hang loose. It can even result in the exhaust dragging on the road. Allow us to fix this for you if you want to avoid any further damage to the exhaust system.

 

These pointers will tell you that you need to bring your car to your nearest Steves Auto Clinic. The reason is simple enough! We have the expertise, the equipment, and the friendly service to alleviate your exhaust woes.

 

Exhaust replacement

You may wonder: “When is it time to replace my car’s exhaust?” There are a few pointers to look out for that may indicate that you have an exhaust problem.

Bolt-on Exhausts

A Steves Auto Clinic supplied bolt-on exhaust system is specifically designed to replicate original exhaust routing, factory style and connection, but with so much more. This allows for easy fitment with a state of the art mandrill bend for the greatest performance gains. The exhaust mufflers and their respective diameters are strategically selected to benefit throttle response, power, reliability and mileage. These exhaust bolt-on systems are all tested and proven on our in-house testing facilities, leaving you with piece of mind.

Many stock exhaust systems reduce the internal size of the diameter of the pipe once it enters the exhaust muffler/exhaust box. This is not the case when it comes to our systems. Our systems use carefully designed exhaust box technology to reduce exhaust noise with minimal exhaust performance implications. The noise level of our bolt-on exhaust system is designed to allow for peaceful driving in most conditions.

 

Exhaust upgrades

Do you want to improve engine flow? Remember, small diameter exhaust piping limits exhaust flow. The answer: upgrade your car’s intake and exhaust. Yes, you should indeed consider upgrading that small diameter factory exhaust piping with bigger diameter piping. The bigger the diameter of your exhaust, the less obstruction there will be. This will result in an increase in flow and hey, you can even free up some horsepower in the process. Talking about horsepower, upgrade your exhaust to a high-performance exhaust system. Such a system is more efficient at removing and filtering gases and can substantially alter your car’s sound and looks. Most importantly, however, is that high-performance exhausts will boost your car’s performance. So, whether you want to upgrade your entire exhaust system or just a part of it, trust Steves Auto Clinic. We have qualified mechanics and technicians to handle all your exhaust upgrade needs.

Since 1983, Steves Auto Clinic has been welding, cutting, testing and tweaking exhaust systems to enhance their power and increase their flow. Times have changed, and so has Steves Auto Clinic. From a pocket rocket hatchback to the latest V6 TDI 4X4 bakkie range, Steves Auto Clinic has the exhaust solutions. By testing the exhaust beforehand on state of the art in-house dynamometers, we can measure your car’s true results before and after an exhaust upgrade.

Steves Auto Clinic can source scientifically approached professional exhaust systems, built as a polished stainless steel product, which is every bit as good as the systems you see advertised overseas for thousands of Euros or Dollars.

 

Custom Building Your Exhaust

You have a choice. Will it be a bolt-on exhaust or a custom built one? Bolt-on kits are easy to install and they are made to fit your car’s specific make and model. But, what if there is no bolt-on option available for your car? Another downside to a bolt-on system is that it offers you nothing more than the standard performance. So, rethink your choice. Rather opt for a custom built exhaust that can provide a greater level of refinement than a bolt-on system. At Steves Auto Clinic we can (and want to) custom build your car’s exhaust system. Whether you require a full system or a part system, Steves are here to assist you.
