An exhaust system features first and second exhaust conduits fluidly coupled to first and second cylinder banks of an associated internal combustion engine. The first and second conduits cross over each other downstream of the engine and are coupled together by a common chamber. The common chamber allows pressure pulses in the first and second conduits flowing past the chamber in opposite directions to at least partially cancel each other, thereby reducing low frequency exhaust noise.
1. An exhaust system for use in a vehicle having an internal combustion engine with first and second cylinder banks, each having respective first and second exhaust manifolds, the exhaust system comprising: a first conduit adapted to be coupled to the first manifold; a second conduit adapted to be coupled to the second manifold; said first and second conduits extending toward each other downstream of their respective manifolds and past a cross-over point where exhaust gases and associated pressure pulses in the first conduit flow in a direction subs...
