In the industry of aftermarket parts for UTVs, there are thousands of different options whether it’s; exhaust, intake, turbo, or suspension, and the list continues. Exhaust is one of the first modifications done to most performance UTVs because nine times out of ten the factory exhaust is going to be too quiet for your liking. The issue that many run into is they want a free-flowing, loud, exhaust but find themselves in situations where the loud exhaust might be a burden to those around them. This is typically an after-thought when buying a loud exhaust and many owners commonly overlook it.
Luckily, there is a solution and that would be the world of Valvetronic exhausts. Valvetronic is still fairly new to the UTV aftermarket industry but has been implemented in higher-end vehicles for quite some time. By using this technology, owners can achieve two different exhaust tones at the push of a button.
What Is a Valvetronic Exhaust?
A Valvetronic exhaust has a butterfly valve that opens up by an electronically controlled actuator. The valve is placed before the muffler, allowing the exhaust gasses to bypass the muffler completely. By doing this, owners found that they could drive around comfortably, but when it came time to push the pedal down, they can open the valve to let the exhaust be heard and eliminate any restriction that holds them back from making peak power.
What Is The Benefit Of a Valvetronic Exhaust?
Installing a Valvetronic exhaust on your car will ultimately give you versatility when it comes to the sound of your UTV. Since a UTV is practically a car, minus a horn and turn signals, owners can retrofit it with road-legal parts and drive it on the street. This is when owning a Valvetronic exhaust comes in handy. While having a loud exhaust is fun, sounds incredible, and increases performance, it can be cumbersome for people around you.
On the contrary, when you are out in the desert ripping a trail with your friends you can open the valve and enjoy the glorious noises. When opening the valve on your Valvetronic exhaust, you are bypassing the muffler and allowing the exhaust to flow freely. In turn, this will improve the performance and efficiency of your machine as there is no restriction causing back pressure in the system.
