Chevy Cruze Performance Exhausts

About Chevy Cruze Performance Exhaust Systems

Chevy offers great value for money and nowhere is this seen more clearly than in the Cruze. The car scores in all the aspects that matter, but could certainly benefit from a custom exhaust system. Performance exhausts for the Cruze are designed to boost power, giving a more enjoyable driving experience as a result. There are different custom exhausts for the Cruze available at CARiD, for all 2011 – 2013 models and trims. When picking an aftermarket exhaust for your car, it is important to go for one that is custom built for your specific model. Thankfully for the Cruze, this will not be a problem as there are a number of exhausts for each model. Installing a Flowmaster, Bola or MagnaFlow Cruze cat back exhaust system gives the highest gains in power, at between 7-10%. Torque increases are of more or less the same percentage.

You may be a little hesitant about replacing the stock exhaust system, particularly because your Cruze is still new. In this case, you may get custom exhaust kits to enhance sound, increase exhaust flow and boost performance a little. Any headers, mufflers, catalytic converters or pipes from the above-named brands or others such as Gibson, Weapon-R, Onki, RBP and MBRP give good results. As expected, your engine note changes when you install a custom exhaust system. For the Cruze, this can be anything from moderate rumbling to a deep and aggressive tone. What you can be sure of is that the custom exhaust will give a far better sound than what you are getting from the stock exhaust. Also, the custom exhaust does a better job of muting engine noises so you can enjoy a really quiet ride. You certainly deserve that.

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.

2013 Chevy Cruze

East to install if u can get it off the ground. The most difficult part is removal of the stock exhaust. Borla is easy to install but the muffler hangs a little lower than expected. Could be an issue for lowered vehicles. I did have to heat and bend the hangers to get the tip away from the rear bumper, but the sound is very nice. If u want a nice little rumble and better performance, this is what u want!!!
