Three Exhaust Systems are available:
[ ] Borla Street for a slightly deeper tone over stock with a mild cruising sound - Made in the US and backed by Borla's Million Mile Warranty!
[ ] Borla Sport offers a more aggressive tone with slightly more volume for those wanting a more 'sporting' sound - Made in the US and backed by Borla's Million Mile Warranty!
[ ] The Quicksilver exhaust system is similar to the Borla Sport, but made in the UK - Quicksilver makes high-end exhaust systems for all the European Exotics.
All exhaust systems are 2 1/4" stainless steel system with twin 4" chrome tips.
The Borla system installs 'downstream' from the secondary catalytic converter. This requires cutting of the stock system just behind the cat, where the Borla system is attached. The rest bolts right-in.
The Quicksilver system installs at the flange, eliminating the need for any 'cutting'. However it removes the secondary resonator.

This Short Ram (SR) Typhoon intake is designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction allowing more air flow to your engine. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine's RPM range. Dyno tests showed 11.17 hp gains!
[ ] Designed for increased performance utilizing finest quality components.
[ ] Guaranteed to provide more horsepower and increased acceleration.
[ ] Includes K&N High-Flow Wahable / Reusable Air Filter.

The K&N Typhoon air intake system is legal for street use in most states. However, it is not legal for street use in California and other states that have adopted California Emissions Standards under Section 177 of the Federal Clean Air Act of 1970. Intake systems are subject to governmental regulation in California and certain other states adopting the emission standards of the California Air Resources Board. In order for an intake system to be legal on a specific vehicle in California and the other adopting states, the part number must receive a CARB Executive Order (EO) number. This number makes the part legal for use only on specific years, makes and models of vehicles. A decal with CARB EO number for these parts must be displayed in the engine bay to satisfy smog inspection requirements.

Pleasant increase in volume with an encouraging 'Rasp' on acceleration - just right for Urban use.
The QuickSilver team has engineered the 'Sports' system's internal design to allow the volume and flow to increase in proportion with rpm. This provides the engine with a deeper tone at low engine speeds rising to a unique, higher pitched and crisper exhaust note at higher rpm.
