The APR Catback Exhaust System personalizes your vehicle's looks, sound and performance. Beautifully hand-crafted T34-stainless-steel components adorn the system with stunning TIG-welding throughout. Our straight-through satin-finished mufflers are configurable to your desire, smoothing the exhaust note to a deep growl, without adding restrictions, rasp or drone. Strong high-quality bracketry and OEM-style clamps hold the system'steadily in place, making the install or removal a snap, and fitment simple, yet precise. A cast 3" to dual 2.5" rear splitter creates an ultra-smooth transition, steadily feeding exhaust gasses out of the system, while looking tidy from under the rear bumper. Finally, removable 4" polished slash-cut exhaust tips finish the system, adding a classy motorsport-inspired touch to the rear of the vehicle
Our exhaust system uses larger piping compared to the factory exhaust system, yet weights 5 lbs. less and 1 lb. less with the optional front muffler. We use 3" OD piping, which then splits to a dual 2.5" design. The factory system uses 2.5" piping, which reduces to 2.3" before splitting, greatly diminishing the overall diameter of the system. Finally, our system's 4" exhaust tips dwarf the factory 3.15" tips, giving the rear of the vehicle a sportier look.
The mufflers are responsible for tuning the exhaust note and do so without adding unnecessary restrictions to the system. Each unit features a straight-through perforated tube that's tightly wrapped with stainless steel and fiberglass material. The mufflers have a beautiful satin finish, and are tucked high in the exhaust tunnel, making them perfect for lowered vehicles.
The system comes standard with a single muffler with the option of adding our front triangular muffler at any time. The system sounds deep, throaty, and devoid of rasp and drone in all configurations. The single muffler setup will be perfect for most customers, especially those with the factory downpipe. When upgrading the downpipe, or going to a larger turbocharger, the system gets louder. For those who want it quieter, our drop-in front muffler makes for an excellent upgrade.
We cast the axle-back splitter to maximize the system's performance by keeping exhaust velocity high and back pressure low. This is accomplished by gradually splitting the system from a single 3" pipe to dual 2.5" pipes. The organically shaped casting allows us to make this transition gradually as to not disturb the flow of gasses. Furthermore, as this component is visible from the rear of the vehicle, we made sure form matched function with a beautiful surface finish, TIG welding, unique bracketry and brushed, mandrel bent tubing.
