Our slip fit cat-back begins where the factory
downpipe ends. A permanent reduction to 2.36" allows 2.5" or 3" piping to slide into
the factory clamp for a leak-free fit. After the clamp a set of hangers slide
into the factory hanger bushings and supports the piping as it bends into a
Magnaflow muffler supported by an additional hanger. After the muffler a short
bend ends at a CNC machined flange. This flange connection is adjustable
allowing precise fitment of the tips. Piping leaves the flanges and routes
neatly under the rear suspension. A precisely fabricated merge splits our piping into two without disrupting flow. Hung neatly in the factory exhaust
cutout sits a pair of high polished stainless steel tips.
Our exhaust tips are built and polished in-house. We're
perfectionists and it's reflected in our tips - literally. Our cat-back is
available with the choice of single wall or double wall tips. Single wall tips
are constructed from a single 3" tube. Each tip is angle cut and welded to a
press-formed expansion then polished to a mirror finish outside and shined-up
inside. Double wall tips are constructed from two tubes - an inner barrel and an
outer barrel. The inner barrel is angle cut and press-formed to precisely meet
the angle cut 3" outer barrel. Welding, smoothing and polishing gives these tips
a powerful look up-close and from a distance. In either construction our tips
are offset to follow the contours of the mk5 rear bumper.
Installation is simple, adjustable, and reliable. A
permanent reduction allows use of the stock sleeve clamp. Precise design and
fabrication routes piping clear of heatshields. Adjustable flanges allow
further adjustment if necessary, sealed by a double layer graphite gasket and
locking hardware. A pair of collars allow the rear hanger to be locked in place.
This means your tips will never slide.
The sound is sporty and refined - not too loud and not a
hint of rasp. Instead of telling you all about the sound we would like you to
hear it. Extensive sound clips will be added to this webpage shortly.
