In-house dyno testing produced gains of up to +20 horsepower and +25 lb.-ft. of torque when combined with aFe down-pipe (P/N: 48-33024-HC).

304 Stainless Steel Construction:
This exhaust system is constructed of 3″ – dual 2-1/2″ mandrel-bent, 304 stainless steel tubing for maximum flow and corrosion resistance.

Active Exhaust Valve:
The system features a factory style active exhaust valve, which uses the factory exhaust valve motor. The valve helps regulate, direct, and control the flow of exhaust gases by opening, closing, or partially obstructing passageways depending on throttle position and factory performance mode for control of sound and performance.

Flow and Performance:
The high flow stainless steel muffler has a 14″ body length overall with a 6″ diameter, and a high temperature metallic black powder coating that helps prevent corrosion. An optional muffler delete pipe [P/N 49M00035] and front resonator delete pipe [P/N 49M10007] are available for a more aggressive exhaust tone.

This exhaust is a direct bolt-on system. All necessary stainless-steel hardware is included for a hassle-free installation.
