The APR Catback Exhaust System personalizes your vehicle’s looks, sound and performance. Beautifully hand-crafted T304-stainless-steel components adorn the system with stunning TIG-welding throughout. Our straight-through brushed-finished muffler smooths the exhaust note to a deep growl, without adding restrictions, rasp or drone. Strong high-quality bracketry and OEM-style clamps hold the system steadily in place, making the install or removal a snap, and fitment simple, yet precise. A cast 3” to dual 2.5” rear splitter creates an ultra-smooth transition, steadily feeding exhaust gasses out of the system, while looking tidy from under the rear bumper. Finally, removable 4" polished slash-cut exhaust tips finish the system, adding a classy motorsport-inspired touch to the rear of the vehicle.



Quick Facts
  • T304 stainless-steel construction
  • Argon-back-purged TIG welding throughout
  • Single 3" to dual 2.5" mandrel-bent brushed tubing
  • Ultra-smooth cast 3" to dual 2.5" splitter
  • Brushed-finished straight-through muffler
  • Polished 4" slash-cut exhaust tips (removable)
  • Rugged and precise mounting brackets
  • OEM style slip clamps and Torca AccuSeal T304 tip clamps
  • Low-profile design, suitable for lowered vehicles
  • Larger diameter piping compared to stock
  • Larger diameter tips compared to stock
  • Lighter weight compared to stock
  • Designed, developed, assembled and quality controlled in-house
  • Easy to install
  • Limited lifetime warranty

System Overview

Our exhaust system uses larger piping compared to the factory exhaust system, yet weights several pounds less. We use 3" OD piping, which then splits to a dual 2.5" design. The factory system uses 2.5" piping, which reduces to 2.25" before splitting and reducing fruther, greatly diminishing the overall diameter of the system. Finally, our system’s 4" exhaust tips dwarf the factory tips, giving the rear of the vehicle a sportier look.



Mufflers

The mufflers are responsible for tuning the exhaust note and do so without adding unnecessary restrictions to the system. The muffler features a straight-through perforated tube that’s tightly wrapped with stainless steel and fiberglass material. The mufflers have a beautiful brushed finish, and are tucked high in the exhaust tunnel, making them perfect for lowered vehicles.



Axle-Back Components

We cast the axle-back splitter to maximize the system’s performance by keeping exhaust velocity high and back pressure low. This is accomplished by gradually splitting the system from a single 3” pipe to dual 2.5” pipes. The organically shaped casting allows us to make this transition gradually as to not disturb the flow of gasses. Furthermore, as this component is visible from the rear of the vehicle, we made sure form matched function with a beautiful surface finish, TIG welding, unique bracketry and brushed, mandrel bent tubing.



Brackets

Our brackets ensure a strong and precise fit, every time. With our design, you’ll never need to worry about the brackets sagging and losing their shape over time, or the post slipping out of the hangers. The brackets are rigid, exact in their position, fit snugly in place and are made to stand the test of time.



Tubing

We use T304 stainless steel tubing throughout. We brush and de-burr all pipes, use mandrel bending techniques to ensure the pipes keep a constant diameter throughout, and use argon-back purged TIG welding for a strong and attractive weld.



Tips

Our polished slash-cut 4” exhaust tips upgrade the rear of the vehicle dramatically. The motorsport-inspired tips tuck nicely into the factory valance, gently following the valance’s curves and demanding all the right attention in all the right places. We laser etch a small and discreet APR logo onto the top of each tip, and we use T304 stainless Torca AccuSeal clamps that bolt on with ease with hardware that rotates out of sight. Lastly, since the tips are removable, you can upgrade to any one of our optional tip designs at any tim



Clamps

Our system uses OEM-style low-profile slip clamps and T304 stainless-steel Torca AccuSeal clamps for the exhaust tips. Our clamp selection allows the system to sit high in the exhaust tunnel, as is favored by lowered vehicles, with ultimate compatibility no matter what Race DP you may have. The clamps make for easy swapping of the exhaust tips, and slide out of the way to make adding or removing the optional front muffler easy. Each connection point is strategically placed to ensure the system has minimal opportunity to rotate during install or during years of heavy driving.



DP Compatibility


We’ve designed our system to be direct bolt-on with the APR Race DP. The included reducer is for use with the factory dp.



Created In-House

Our exhaust systems are proudly designed, developed, assembled and quality controlled in-house at the APR 78,000 sq.ft performance campus in Opelika, Alabama.

The old system was also dual 2.5” if I’m not mistaken. Dual 2.5” is larger than a single 3” so going to dual 3” has no advantages. It does have disadvantages, though. Typically it doesn’t sound so great as exhaust velocity slows and bounces around a larger tube (sounds more hollow). It also weighs more. Then comes fitment concerns and less tip options with heavier tip clamps. Lastly, likely more cost to consumers.

Maybe I missed it but wanted to see where to see if I am on the latest software? Is there a release/version log you have available publicly?

Thanks for that Arin.
