    ok my girlfriend tried to tell me that when a vehicle's exhaust it bent at a 90 out the side of a car/truck that it will lose horsepower, i don't think that it does and if it does that its barley enough to effect anything so i was wondering if anyone knows were i can find proven facts about this so that i can finally shut her up :D thanks for the help

    yes straighter pipe woul dbe less resistance, but not my hardly anything at all and definitely not enough to care about unless youre seriously trying to get every fraction of a HP out of an engine, if were a serious racer or something else crazy

    Depends on the bend used....Don't shut her up, keep her interested. Way easier to build rigs with blessing from the other half....

    Aint no doubt man.....I'm always psyching the old lady up about the ride so she wants to drive it when I,m gone away on the road but i know as soon as she sits down behind the wheel and fires that (450HP+) stroker up the adrenaline will cause her to buckle at the knees and beg for mercy while scrambling back into the house to take a muscle relaxer.... :haha:
