The XLR was throughout its production a coveted luxury roadster and Cadillac’s flagship car. You can make sure that the memories of driving a brand new Cadillac XLR don’t fade by keeping the car at its best performance. A great way to do so is by fitting it with a custom exhaust system from CARiD. Custom exhausts offer guaranteed improvements in engine performance and increases in power and torque. Doing a complete overhaul of the stock exhaust system will offer you the best results, as the custom exhaust system can be connected right from the engine cylinders to the exterior tip, offering streamlined efficiency in exhaust flow. Should you opt for this, the MagnaFlow cat back system for the XLR and the Corsa XLR cat back, dual-rear exhaust system are excellent options. Both give between 10-20 hp more. The Corsa XLR exhaust is available for 2004-2006 models and is fully custom built for each trim, while the MagnaFlow exhaust is available for 2004-2009 models, and is similarly adapted for the different models.

Gibson, Weapon-R, RBP, Zunden, Borla, Onki and Flowmaster are other exhausts and component brands than you can choose from. When choosing between custom exhausts, consider the kind of sound you want your car to produce after the installation. This is because in as much as the custom exhaust will improve your engine note, no two exhausts sound the same. XLR custom exhaust notes range from aggressive, powerful and loud, to moderate, mild and low. Each exhaust system available at the CARiD shop comes with a clear description of the sound it produces so you can know exactly how the exhaust sounds beforehand. If you are fed up with the same tired performance and sound from your XLR, get a custom exhaust system. The benefits are worth the purchase.

      Are Headers Worth The Performance Improvement?
      Engines have often been compared to air pumps, because the engine that’s most efficient in terms of economy and power is the one that can get air in and out of its cylinders the easiest. That’s why most performance modifications like conical air filters, cold air intake systems, headers, and cat-back exhaust systems are aimed at making the intake and exhaust systems less restrictive. These parts increase the flow of air into the engine and ease the flow of exhaust gas out of the engine. Among these components, headers may be the most difficult to install. In this article, we’ll discuss what headers do, their different types, and how much performance they can add to your car.

      Are X-pipes and H-pipes Better Than Straight Pipes on Dual Exhaust Systems?
      You may be wondering why so many aftermarket performance exhaust system manufacturers are offering dual exhaust systems connected by "H-pipe" or "X-pipe" sections. After all, aren't two separate pipes, or so-called "true duals", the best for performance? The answer is no, but to understand why we have to examine how a typical internal combustion engine works.

      Power, Sound, Looks | Can I Have It All With a Cat-Back Exhaust System?
      It's an age-old question that many have asked. Will an aftermarket exhaust be worth the expense? While they definitely can be, an important question to ask yourself is do you care more about the deeper sound they’re designed to produce, or the added performance gained from being less restrictive? As car enthusiasts, we’ve become accustomed to associating the sound of a car with its exhaust. After all, doesn’t everyone have a childhood memory or two of a car and the particular sound it made?

      Pickup Truck Cab And Bed Sizes Are Important When Selecting Accessories
      Americans love to have choices. Buying a dress shirt? Decide solid or stripe, short or long sleeve, cotton or poly blend, button or spread collar, regular fit, slim fit, or big & tall. How about a meal at your favorite steak house? Will it be porterhouse, T-bone, or sirloin? Cooked rare, medium-rare, or medium? With baked, mashed, or French fried potatoes? Thirsty for a fancy cup of coffee? Let's not even get started on options that let you end up with a "grande caramel macchiato with 1% low-fat milk, 2 Splendas, and an extra espresso shot".

      Direct Fit vs. Universal Mufflers
      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 between these two styles so you can make a more informed purchase.
