Performance Exhaust Upgrades
Nothing is better than finding the true perfect sound for your vehicle with an exhaust upgrade. The trick is knowing what type of exhaust to go with that bests suits your type of driving. There are three main types of Catback systems for your vehicle and two types of “Downpipes
Sound: Moderate – Slightly louder than stock
The sound you get from a resonated system is for the enthusiast who wants to hear the exhaust note in the car but not so much that you make your neighbors upset.
Price Range: Touring/Resonated system typically is higher priced due to the added equipment of resonators to keep them quieter.
Conclusion: Great starting system for someone new into the tuning world or for someone who wants the grunt of the car to come out but not too much that it is all you hear.
Non – Resonated (Track)
Sound: Loud – You will hear this system.
Non-resonated/Track systems are meant to be heard. They are a perfect system to grab attention and a wow factor when driving down the road. They are a perfect free-flowing exhaust (as a disclaimer this may upset your neighbors).
Price Range: Less expensive than the resonated system.
Conclusion: Amazing for the car enthusiast who wants to be heard on the road, getting the full experience of sound in your car. These systems will not disappoint.
Sound: Quiet & Loud – Ability to switch modes.
The best of both worlds, this exhaust system can be easily switched between modes.
Price Range: The most expensive out of the three.
Conclusion: The best overall system for your vehicle for sounds variations and quality. A system you can truly keep quiet when needed and be a head tuner with a click of a button.
HighFlow Cat Downpipe
Sound: Quieter then the cat less counterpart but louder than the stock pipe and cat due to being bigger in diameter.
Use: Having the HF Cat will help you pass emissions if you live in a state that requires it. Still getting the performance side of it having a bigger diameter part but also still being legal on the road.
Price Range: The most expensive out of the two. Quality performance catalyst usually are never cheap.
Conclusion: Great overall performance system to put into your vehicle if you need to pass emissions or just want to have your car a little quieter. Will greatly improve the performance of the vehicle for opening up the flow of the exhaust. Paired with a stage 2 tune will greatly benefit the new hardware.
Sound: Expect this modification to be loud. The catalyst on the vehicle is the first sound dampening that every car has to deal with, so expect when you remove it you will hear a dramatic difference especially when paired with the catback. The downpipe is what we like to call “The bass of the vehicle”.
Use: This is a “Track Only” modification. This mod will not pass emissions without the cat. Please make sure to do your research on your state to make sure you do not need to get an emissions test or be prepared to have a catalyst installed in the future. Furthermore, you will get the most “Free Flow” with the exhaust system.
Price Range: Cheaper out of the two due to the lack of having the catalyst attached.
Conclusion: Perfect track system. Get the best flow out of the car and if you are a sound enthusiast this is a great way of getting that deep bass tone for your vehicle.
