These days there are plenty of performance exhaust systems available for the latest tuner cars, but for vintage American muscle cars it can be stock or…a guessing game. Will that company's mufflers really give me better performance? How will that system sound once it's on my car? And forget about getting something in quality stainless steel! Well, those days are over; Borla now has a line of quality performance exhaust systems specially made for Classic American cars.
Like the systems they make for late-model vehicles, Borla custom designs each exhaust system for the specific application, to make the most horsepower and torque with the best sound quality. The patented straight through 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, in contrast to the chambered mufflers used by most aftermarket companies. Chambered mufflers use partitions or baffles to subdue sound waves, which also creates backpressure and reduces power.
The shape and diameter of the exhaust tubing is optimized for volume and exhaust gas velocity. Borla mandrel bends the stainless steel tubing 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.
But improved performance is only part of what you want in an aftermarket exhaust system, because all the horsepower in the world won't matter if it doesn't sound right. There's no need to worry with a Borla Classics System. They have many years of automotive acoustical experience and the company is staffed with automotive enthusiasts just like you that listen and drive cars to make sure your system has the right sound to go with the power. Each system has been designed to provide the acoustical note that best reflects the car's character.
However, the best power and sound is meaningless if the exhaust system rots away in a few years. Borla uses the finest materials and construction techniques to make sure this won't happen. They use austenitic stainless steel for their systems, 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.
The Borla Stainless Steel Manifold-Back Exhaust System comes complete with everything required for installation, including detailed instructions. Borla is so confident in the quality of this system that it's guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship for one million miles.
