Exhaust Tips

Stainless Steel Option

Product Info

Our slip fit cat-back begins where the factory downpipe ends. A permanent reduction to 2.36" allows 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.
