AEM has extensive experience improving intake airflow to your engine. The engineers at AEM know that reducing restriction results in increased horsepower. Now AEM has devoted its considerable expertise to reducing restriction on the exhaust side. This stainless steel cat-back exhaust system was developed on the dyno to increase exhaust flow and produce considerable gains in horsepower and torque. The numbers with the exhaust system alone are impressive, but even more power can be gained with the addition of an AEM cold air intake system.
When they engineered this system, AEM didn’t just concentrate on power. They know that you buy an aftermarket exhaust system primarily to boost performance, but they also know that it has to sound right, be relatively easy to install, and last. The AEM cat-back exhaust system has a sporty sound that’s not so loud that it drones and resonates through the cab, but just sharp enough that you know it’s not stock. Even though the pipes are larger diameter, AEM retained the factory routing paths and clearances between critical components. All pipes are mandrel bent for smooth bends and to make sure the pipe maintains its size and shape throughout the entire length. Tubes that aren’t mandrel bent can lose a significant percentage of their diameter in sharp bends. All connections feature OEM quality 3/8” stainless steel flanges and gaskets. This system comes with everything necessary for a hassle free installation, including detailed instructions with photographs.
Finally, even the best performing exhaust system isn’t worth a thing if it rots away in a few years. To make sure this won’t happen, AEM constructs the muffler and pipes from high grade stainless steel. AEM warrants this exhaust system to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 5 years on 304 stainless steel components and 3 years on 409 stainless steel parts.
John Concialdi and Bob Sullivan co founded AEM in 1987 as a tuning performance shop in Compton California. Both men had extensive technical backgrounds in engines and engine airflow, and in a short time AEM became the go-to company for performance modifications. By 1993, when the company relocated to Gardena California, it had become commonplace to see cars wearing the bright yellow AEM logo winning races. AEM tirelessly dyno tested and worked closely with racers and auto manufacturers in an effort to understand intake energy dynamics. This resulted in the sale of their first air intake kit in 1994. AEM can boast a number of firsts and unique products: They’re the first manufacturer to make an intake system with specific tube lengths and diameters to take advantage of pressure waves in the inlet tract; they developed the first dual chamber intake kit; they designed an air bypass valve to prevent hydro-lock should the air filter ingest water; and they created one of the first hybrid intake systems for modified cars. AEM continues to create innovative products to help you get more power from your car.
