XR-1™ Stainless Steel Round Collector Exhaust Muffler by Borla®. Muffler Sound: Aggressive / Loud. Muffler Structure: Multi Core. Muffler Configuration: Center - Center. The Borla XR-1 Multi-Core Muffler was developed on the race track to quiet the most severe engine noise without restricting power. They work so well that they’re used by race vehicles that aren’t even required to have mufflers! Now you can have this advanced technology for your car.
- To ensure precise fit, please check muffler shape, length and inlet diameter: the latter should match your exhaust pipe diameter
- Installation may involve welding and cutting.

In racing, every horsepower counts, so no competitor will use something that will reduce engine power. Yet, winning drivers in all forms of racing use Borla XR-1 Multi-Core Racing Mufflers. It’s because these racers have found that Borla mufflers cost them no power and in many instances, actually increase horsepower. In fact, a Borla multi-core straight through muffler has actually been found to outflow a straight piece of pipe! Most of the recent Baja off-road endurance racing champions used Borla mufflers even though the rules don’t mandate them, because they either increase or don’t reduce power, and the noise reduction reduces driver fatigue and increases driver awareness.
These collector mufflers are designed for drag racers and are intended to replace the header collectors. Instead of open headers, these units serve as a power producing merge collector and muffler, all in one. You get reduced noise and more power. They’re available in Standard and Shorty versions, with the Shorty intended for vehicles where the Standard is too large.
Borla’s patented straight through, multi-core muffler design reduces restriction and increases exhaust gas velocity, making sure each cylinder is completely evacuated to make room for the incoming charge. This design absorbs the sound waves without disturbing the power waves. They also feature a long scavenging spike in the tapered end to improve flow as the diameter of the collector decreases. Borla uses austenitic stainless steel in the construction of the XR-1 Collector Mufflers, which contains high levels of nickel and chromium, to resist corrosion. This material is harder than the lower grade stainless steel used by the OEM manufacturers, yet is very ductile. Nevertheless, the increased hardness requires special equipment to form and bend. The muffler contains stainless steel perforated tubes wrapped with several layers of stainless steel sound absorbing material and a layer of ceramic sound absorbing, high temperature material, all contained in a fully welded stainless steel shell.
Borla® is the leading manufacturer of stainless steel performance exhaust products. The company began three decades ago making exhaust systems for concours classic Rolls Royce and Ferrari models, and gradually evolved to become the premier manufacturer of performance exhaust products for street, off-road and racing. Borla pioneered many improvements in the design of performance exhaust systems, holds several patents for innovative exhaust system technology, and has won numerous “Best New Product” awards. Today the company operates a state of the art research and development center in Oxnard, California, and makes all of its products at a world-class manufacturing facility in Johnson City, Tennessee.
