Moving to the muffler section of our system, we have retained the dual mode exhaust flap control from the original system. This allows the vehicle to have a more civilized, but deeper than stock sound at low speed. However, at higher RPM (or when selecting the S mode on the gearshift) the muffler is bypassed, creating a deep and sporty sound much more in keeping with the personality of the car.
The included exhaust pipe tips are made completely from titanium to add a high-end, refined style.
Performance has not been left out of the design. The system dramatically reduces backpressure and is an excellent starting point for further engine tuning or turbo modifications. Even when installed on an otherwise stock vehicle a gain of 10 horsepower and 17 Nm/12.5 lbs-ft of torque are achieved. Furthermore, a weight reduction of 10.5 kg/23.1 lbs. is realized. The OEM catalysts are retained, so no reflashing of the ECU is required and the check engine light will not be triggered.
