“Automotive Exhaust Systems” refers to one or more of the following: manifolds, flex pipes, catalytic converters, converters, diesel oxidation catalysts, diesel particulate filters, oxygen sensors, isolators, gaskets, clamps, resonator assemblies, pipe accessories, mufflers, muffler assemblies, and tubes. An exhaust system has a “hot end,” which is the part of the exhaust system that is mounted to the engine (generally comprising the manifold and/or catalytic converter) and a “cold end,” which is the part of the exhaust system that is mounted to the underbody of the car (and contains, for example, the muffler, pipes and/or the catalytic converter).
