Exhaust

The Best Wilmington Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services

At Lunar Low Automotive 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 Lunar Low Automotive and keep your exhaust system running smoothly. At Lunar Low Automotive 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 Lunar Low Automotive today at 521 Wellington Ave.

  • 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 Lunar Low Automotive at 521 Wellington Ave and we will diagnose the problem right away.
  • O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Lunar Low Automotive 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 Lunar Low Automotive 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 Lunar Low Automotive 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 Lunar Low Automotive 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.

    I was very pleased with Lunar Low's prompt service and fair pricing. I was able to get my car in on the same day that I called, and it took them less than 30 minutes to diagnose the issue and give an estimate. An hour later, the work was complete. Very happy with David's professionalism and Wayne's explanation of what he saw with my car.

    I could not be happier with my experience at Lunar Low. It was great taking my car to a shop I could trust and the cost was a fraction of the quote I had gotten at another shop. I would not hesitate to take my car back to David and Wayne. As a female it is great to have a place I can trust!!!

    Took my Jeep to these guys on a recommendation from a friend and after 2 visits (for separate issues), my jeep is on the road again with no issues that I can find. I had my transfer case replaced, front differential rebuilt and an axle bearing replaced. They didn't promise more than they could deliver and delivered on what they "promised" and they're very competitively priced. I would not think twice to take my jeep there for repairs. Thanks Lunar Low for a job well done.

    Took my 1998 TJ (Jeff) to Lunar Low because the rear end needed work. Ended up rebuilding the rear end, upgrading to 4.10 gears, and coming across more problems than we originally realized. I got Jeff back the other day and it's like a whole new Jeep!! Pricing was fair and I highly recommend these guys for all your automotive needs!!

    Fiest of all..great group of guys at Lunar Low!! As often happens when it's a female taking in her car she gets treated like she is clueless!! Not these guys!! Very respectful and friendly! Secondly..I have a 2012 Chrysler 200 and everything was still factory on it. I needed brakes..rotars..tires..oil change and wipers. Total price was fantastic and car was just like the day I drove it off the lot!! I will be recommending Lunar Low to all my friends! Thank you for everything!!!

    Had air conditioner problem with our 2011 Equinox. Second time with problem. Another repair shop replaced complete system(suppossedly) only 1 1/2 years ago. Compressor was bad again. Thanks to Wayne we were able to get a new one put in for half the price we were charged before. Thanks to everyone for their help and I believe this will be my shop to go to from now on. Again thanks for your help.

    Honest and fair mechanics can be tough to come by in this town and I'd heard nothing but great things about this place. So when my girlfriend started having issues with her SUV, I told her to bring it by. Best choice we could have made. They quickly, and properly, diagnosed and repaired the problem.They didn't try to tack on any unnecessary repairs or extra cost. Not only that, but their prices are great!

    Knowledgeable, and fairly priced. I don't take my YJ anywhere else. If I can't do it, they can. Extremely helpful guys, can't say enough about them.

    I took my 08 Wrangler to them when it was having issues with wandering all over the road and having to fight it to drive a straight line. I knew it was going to have some serious issues and have a massive price tag because of its age and the height of the lift that I?d put on it, but I didn?t expect the guys in this shop to be as helpful and truthful as they were. They found the best prices for the parts that were needed, and they even went out of their way to physically show me what was wrong with my vehicle instead of just listing off all the problems without explaining the situation. I?ve never had a better experience with any other shop anywhere, and I won?t hesitate to bring my vehicle back to them for anything from a minor oil change to extreme repairs. There?s no one else I?d trust as much as these folks and certainly nobody else I?ll be going to.

    These guys are always so honest and helpful. I even got assistance when they were busy trying to fix their own shop from the hurricane. always honest. always fair. always incredibly kind. I cannot recommend them enough. They have fixed my tires, done my inspection, fixed my AC (when nissan couldnt!) and helped me when they werent even technically open. Support local honest and fair mechanics. They are amazing!

    They listen to the vision I had in mind for my tacoma and spent time helping me understanding the pros and cons and making the right choices. They ordered the tires, rims and lift kit and had them in shop in just a few days. They were able to work with my schedule to get the job done all the while staying in contact throughout the whole experience. I was blown away with how great the truck turned out and really felt confident with David and Wayne getting it right. I would HIGHLY recommended Lunar low automotive for your vehicle needs, especially off road. They truly are a one stop shop experience with the ability to order and install/tune the parts. Thanks so much David, Wayne and your team and look forward to doing more business in the future.

    I was very impressed with my first trip there. They were very honest and pricing was reasonable. They even offered to stay open late on a Friday for me after I had an unrelated ignition issue when I returned to work after my lunch hour- above and beyond. Thank you again!

  • reviewicon

    I took my car here about a week ago for a new starter....Not only was the customer service exceptional but David was able to find the part for a cheaper price (which saved me money) AND they stayed passed closing just so I could have my car the next day! Can't say enough about Wayne and David!!! This is THE GO TO place for your automotive needs! Thanks guys!

  • reviewicon

    This is by far the best priced with the most most honest auto mechanics I have ever dealt with!! I highly recommend anyone with any auto problem to go here first !! You will not be sorry!! They rock!!!at such a fair and honest price!! Thank you Rusty and Karen Bowers for the recommendation!!!

  • reviewicon

    David and Wayne saved me over $3,000 by going the extra mile and checking things out where 3 other mechanics were quick to tell me I needed a new engine or head gasket....my fix was a simple part that was replaced with an oil change. They are now my and my family's mechanics for life!

  • reviewicon

    These guys are the most trustworthy mechanics I had meet in over 30 years. They gave a detailed quote on repairs and a very fair price. This will be me and my family's preferred garage going forward. Thank you guys for a job WELL DONE.

    After being referred to Lunar Low by a friend, we brought our vehicle in to have a few issues checked out. We were impressed with their honesty and speed at resolving the issues our suv was having. They are our go to shop now for everything from tires to inspections and any vehicle maintenance related. We highly recommend this place to all our friends now.
