What are Balance Pipes and how do they work?
Balance tubes help to even out the pulses in the exhaust gases and balance the back pressure between both banks of your engine. They not only improve horsepower but sound as well.
To find the right location to install your balance tube, apply a strip of paint down the front portion of the exhaust pipes.
The balance tube should be placed where the paint blisters (burns off) on the exhaust pipes. The balance tube should be at least 75% of the diameter of the pipes with which it connects & is usually located as close to the headers as possible.
