Exhaust

The Best Irvine Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services

At Blacksmith European Motorworks we know some drivers like a quiet exhaust system while others prefer a "the louder the better" approach. Either way, an unusual rattle when your car is running is a signal that it is time for an immediate inspection of your exhaust system.

Quiet Exhaust and Muffler Services

Come to Blacksmith European Motorworks and keep your exhaust system running smoothly. At Blacksmith European Motorworks we know you count on your exhaust system and muffler to reduce noise and normalize your engine's back-pressure. When your exhaust system is faulty it can be very loud, but more importantly, it can impact your engine performance. Whatever the problem, we can repair it and get you back on the road quickly. Come by Blacksmith European Motorworks today at 8767 IRVINE CENTER DR SUITE M.

  • Catalytic Converter Replacement: Your catalytic converter is the most expensive part of your exhaust system. When your catalytic converter begins to fail, you will hear a very loud rattling noise or your "check engine light" will begin to flash. Come by Blacksmith European Motorworks at 8767 IRVINE CENTER DR SUITE M and we will diagnose the problem right away.
  • O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Blacksmith European Motorworks and they will tell you to have your O2 sensor inspected regularly. Oxygen sensors work in conjunction with your catalytic converter to monitor the amount of oxygen in your car's exhaust system. Your O2 sensor determines if your air to fuel ratio is balanced in real-time as you accelerate or idle. It helps your engine controller adjust the flow of fuel to maintain optimum oxygen to fuel mixture.

High-Performance Header Upgrades

While exhaust manifolds and headers play a similar role, at Blacksmith European Motorworks we know they are miles apart on performance. Headers are upgrade parts designed for performance applications, while exhaust manifolds come standard. Both move exhaust away from the cylinder head to the exhaust pipe. Most noticeably, headers and its companion gaskets and wider exhaust pipe are much louder than a traditional manifold. But more importantly, the header improves exhaust system performance.

Exhaust manifolds are frequently formed of cast iron. The cast iron construction of your manifold keeps exhaust from being cleared as efficiently as possible. Headers solve this problem as they are made of individual steel tubes that connect to each cylinder. Header tubes all connect to a single collector pipe. The tubes have a smooth interior that keeps gases flowing evenly to prevent engine back-pressure. If you want the performance of a header but the sound is a problem, talk to our mechanics at Blacksmith European Motorworks about an electric exhaust cutout. They are simple to install and allow you to open your exhaust without crawling under your car.

Get The Look Of Custom Exhaust Tubing & Tips

Straight, U, J, and S exhaust tubing are made with a smooth stainless steel or mild steel aluminized metal interior for maximum exhaust flow. At Blacksmith European Motorworks exhaust tubing can be configured for a custom exhaust system. Stainless steel exhaust tubing looks sharp and adds longevity to your exhaust system. Complete the look with stylish exhaust tips. Nothing finishes an exhaust pipe better than the crisp clean appearance of a polished stainless steel exhaust pipe tip.

Loud Exhaust and Muffler Services

X-pipe and H-pipes synchronize the balance of the exhaust pulses from each cylinder based on firing order to increase efficiency. Many high-performance car owners like the deeper rumbling sound of H-pipes. If you own a street rod, Lake Pipes and Side Pipes route exhaust along or beside the bottom of your car body offering both increased performance, vintage look, and an aggressive sound. When it comes to trucks and diesel, consider smoke stack exhaust pipes to improve engine efficiency, pulling power and performance.

What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    The folks at the Blacksmith European Motorworks really take care of their customers and their cars. I have a 1986 Volvo that has needed many repairs in the last year and they helped me every step of the way. Stephan and his team rebuilt my whole exhaust system so that I could pass smog for a fraction of what I thought it was going to cost. They really look out for the customer and never give up on the cars that they love. This will always be my first choice for any service big or small.

    Blacksmith European Motorworks provides honest, reasonable priced service, with great results. My Volvo S40 just had it's tune up the the guys there are very honest with you. If it is just an oil change that is what you get. If they detect upcoming problems, you are informed and are given the information needed to either have work done then or wait a couple months. This honesty is something I treasure, plus they outstanding job they have done with my car.

    I came from Seattle, and my 9.5 Saab started oil leak. I took my car to Blacksmith European auto shop and received warm welcome. Immediately my car checked and diagnosed and source of problem found. I recommend this shop to all Saab owners.

  • reviewicon

    They repaired my car as scheduled, helped me understand the safety features, and followed up as promised. I don't feel crazy for owning a Saab in this shop, or at least I feel comfortable with it. It is a very comfortable waiting area, and there are a variety of good restaurants nearby, so I would go back for regular service from people who I believe would notice anything else that might become a problem.

    I can't say enough good things about our experience at this shop. My teenage daughters just bought a used Volvo a few months ago, and when it needed repairs we brought it in to Ken. As usual we were extremely satisfied from start to finish. We have known him for many years and he is always very professional and trustworthy. His shop is clean and the waiting room is very pleasant. The repairs were done quickly and the girls were happy to be back in their car! I highly recommend Blacksmith European Motorworks

    Blacksmith European Motorworks is the poster image of authentic customer service. At the front counter, Ken gives attention to ensuring that the customer understands the work order and that the pricing is fair. Behind the scenes, Blacksmith's highly-qualified mechanics are treating every car like it is their own. If your need is major work or simply a tune-up, stop in, you won't be disappointed. And, no, I am not family or friend; I am, truly, a super satisfied customer. Thanks Blacksmith European Motorworks!

    Found out my car had was leaking differential fluid on a Sunday night, took it to the Blacksmith on Monday morning. He inspected it and called me with a pressure free detailed oriented estimate, also he had sent a hard copy in a email (HUGE Plus +). After approving the estimate he had the car fixed before I had time to pick it up. Great service, quality work!

    I only trust them with my little car, Jellybean. Driving a vintage 1956 Volvo P444 requires a very excellent crew to keep her finely tuned. They've gone over with a fine tooth comb and brought her back to running like a Swiss watch. Thanks guys! You're the BEST!

    My first visit to Blacksmith and boy was I happy I found them. I found them through Yelp and messaged back and forth and felt confidant with them. The waiting area, office and restroom were immaculate, as was the shop. That's always a great sign. Ken did a great job and showed me what was needed. I felt I was talking with a friend that cared! (A great quality in the automotive world.) The repairs were done right and fairly quickly. The whole experience was great! I highly recommend Blacksmith and Ken!!

    I messaged this mechanic shop on a busy morning I was trying to get quick quotes, and they responded immediately. He asked me a few questions about my vehicle and Sent me a formal quote by email less than an hour later. I dropped off my vehicle at 1 PM and it was ready by 6 PM. His prices were less expensive than 4 other quotes I received. I though I need 4 new brakes but he said I only needed two! I appreciate the honesty and will definitely be going back!
