Acura ILX Performance Exhausts

About Acura ILX Performance Exhaust Systems

The Acura ILX is no doubt a great car: sound engineering, great looks and a commendable performance level. If you are still using the car’s stock exhaust system though, you are limiting its performance. This is because the ILX factory exhaust system does not fully tap into the engine’s horsepower. You can however, significantly increase the power of your ILX by installing a new, custom exhaust system. Custom Acura ILX exhaust systems are specially designed to suck all exhaust gases out of the engine cylinders, leaving enough room for oxygen to flow into the engine. As a result, the engine is able to produce more power at speed and attain its peak power within a shorter time. By replacing your ILX stock exhaust system with a custom, performance exhaust, you increase the engine’s performance and will notice substantial gains in power. Your ILX will not only record a higher optimum power, this maximum power will come at a lower RPM, which adds another interesting element: fuel efficiency. By enjoying more power at lower RPM, your ILX will return a higher MPG. In essence, you will be able to drive your ILX a longer distance than before on the same amount of fuel.

CARiD, a leading authorized auto parts dealer, has many custom exhaust models specifically designed for the Acura ILX that you can choose from. Most of them come complete with a universal muffler, exhaust tip, exhaust header, catalytic converter and pipes. There are at least 127 different models of ILX exhaust systems to choose from. The Flowmaster Aluminized Steel Balance H-Pipe Kit for the CL is one example of an exhaust that perfectly balances back pressure to maximize engine efficiency. Another of the best quality exhaust systems you can buy for your ILX, the Flowmaster 225 Series catalytic converter maintains high exhaust gas flow at all RPM levels, keeping the engine moving faster and thus producing more power even at low RPM. In stock are many other exhaust systems for all 2013 Acura ILX trims, so you can find an exact match and fit for your ILX.

Regardless of whether you're shopping for a simple replacement muffler that delivers original equipment (OE) sound and performance or an upgraded muffler which provides a deeper growl with increased power through freer exhaust flow, you'll see choices between "direct fit" mufflers and "universal" mufflers. In this article, we'll help you understand the differences...
It has been a battle of the ages to make exhaust sound like it should. Having less bends or turns will not only improve the sound but also performance. A custom exhaust is always an option for the race inspired and spirited weekend warriors. Our manufactures offer everything needed to build a custom exhaust to your preference.
Headers are installed because the stock exhaust manifolds usually flow poorly. An exhaust header has individual tubes for each exhaust port, allowing each exhaust pulse to flow unobstructed from the cylinder head. The tubes on headers are usually larger in diameter than the runners on an exhaust manifold and the tubes are mandrel bent for gradual radius bends.
