Upgrading your factory exhaust system to a Borla stainless steel performance exhaust system with a more efficient and less restrictive design will improve sound as well as increase engine horsepower and torque throughout the RPM range. Borla exhaust systems are offered in cat-back as well as axle-back configurations.
Borla Cat-Back Exhaust Systems
The Borla "Cat Back™" name implies the exhaust system is located behind the factory catalytic converter where there factory emissions remain untouched and vehicle stays emissions compliant. This remains distinct from the axle-back exhaust system that is located behind the rear axle. The Borla Cat Back kits require no welding, thus being secured using the factory hanger locations. Borla Cat Back exhaust systems use engine-specific (not universal) mufflers that are designed, tested, and optimized specifically for a particular year/make/model vehicle. Borla Cat Back systems increase the overall sound level & performance.
Borla Axle-Back Exhaust Systems
A Borla "Axle Back" or rear section exhaust implies the exhaust system is located behind the vehicle rear axle. Most installations are completed in less than an hour and require no cutting of the factory system. Axle Back systems are popular performance parts for customers looking for a louder-than-stock rumble while accelerating. Like a Borla Cat-Back™ exhaust system, Borla Axle Back exhaust systems use engine-specific (not universal) mufflers that are designed, tested, and optimized specifically for a particular year/make/model vehicle. On certain vehicles we offer more than one sound level for the discriminating driver. Borla Axle Back systems replace the factory rear mufflers and exhaust pipe improving overall sound & performance on your truck, SUV, or car. Welded tips are standard on most systems running gas or diesel fuels.
BORLA® ATAK® (Acoustically Tuned Applied Kinetics) technology is designed for high-performance purists who prefer exhaust sound over their stereos. ATAK®-equipped exhaust systems deliver the highest available dB (decibel) levels in the BORLA® street-legal lineup... and unlike inferior brands that lose significant sound quality at higher volumes, ATAK® is tuned like a graphic equalizer to shape and focus sound waves for optimum high-volume output.
ATAK® technology is based on specifically-tuned attributes of the internal muffler cores, which are calibrated on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis to deliver the most desirable sound. For more details and to hear the difference, watch our ATAK® videos below for different make and model vehicles.
