Many people wonder if it’s worth getting an aftermarket car exhaust installed. The answer to this question is 100 percent yes! Upgrading your exhaust system allows exhaust gases to escape quicker and more efficiently. In other words your engine “breathes” better. This can free some power from your engine giving it more horsepower.

Exhaust pipes are made with two types of bends, which makes a difference in the way the air flows. These two types of bends are the “crush-bend technique” and a “mandrel bend.” A car exhaust can be made from mild steel, aluminized steel, or stainless steel. Most stock systems are made from mild steel, which have a tendency to deteriorate over time. The exhaust systems we install at Joe’s Stereo are made from stainless steel, which is designed to last for the life time of your vehicle.

There are several benefits to installing an aftermarket exhaust system. Not only does it improve performance, but it also adds to your vehicle’s appearance and sound. Installing an aftermarket car exhaust will change the sound of your car exhaust. While idling it gives a low growl, but during acceleration, you’ll hear an aggressive roar. Most exhaust systems add to the appearance of your vehicle giving it more style or an aggressive look. If you prefer the stock look exhaust system, there are many systems that look stock, but have still have the performance gains. You can choose the diameter of pipes. You should go much larger in diameter of a stock system if you plan on adding a turbocharger or supercharger. The tips of our mufflers are polished, which gives it a more refined look. With our well designed exhaust systems, your vehicle’s gas mileage can also be increased.

At Joe’s Stereo, we have a specialized and trained team that can provide multiple types of installations. Our services also include car audio installation, amplifiers, speakers, sub woofers, and HID headlights. We also do window tinting, installation of suspension and custom wheels. We can even do audio installation on your boat or RV. We take pride in providing the highest quality work to our customers.

Are you a vehicle owner who is considering the option to have your windows tinted in the near future? If so, then you may be curious as to what the advantages of having tinted windows are in addition to where you can take your car for the absolute best quality and most affordable window tint San Diego. Fortunately, you have come to the right place; Joe’s Stereo offers quality window tinting at an affordable price that cannot be beat.

Benefits of Vehicle Window Tinting

There are a number of advantages that having tinted car windows can afford to you. For starters, window tint can lower the overall interior temperature of your car by preventing more of the sun’s rays from entering your car. You are probably already well aware of just how hot and uncomfortable your car can get in San Diego, especially during the hot and humid days of summer. Depending on the level of tint that you end up going with in your car, you can reduce its overall interior temperature by several degrees.

As a result, your car’s air conditioning system also gets a break by not having to work as much or as hard. This results in a longer life for your vehicle’s air conditioner and saves you money in repairs down the road. After all, cars that constantly have to have to AC running at full blast to keep cool are more susceptible to radiator problems, overheating, lack of charge, and freon leakage.

Finally, having tinted car widows can also save your car’s interior from premature damage caused by UV ray exposure. Specifically, the sun’s rays can lead to cracked upholstery, discoloration, and other unattractive wear. Since tinted car windows reduce the amount of sunlight that reaches your car’s interior, you enjoy a cooler ride and your car maintains its value for longer as well.
