A Borla "Axle Back" or rear section exhaust implies the exhaust system is located behind the vehicle rear axle . Most installations are completed in less than an hour and require no cutting of the factory system. A Borla Axle Back performance exhaust is a less restrictive aftermarket exhaust system that will improve the sound level both inside the cabin and exterior. Borla Axle Back exhaust systems use engine-specific (not universal) mufflers that are designed, tested, and optimized specifically for a particular year/make/model vehicle.
Improvements in sound and performance are accomplished by using a superior straight-through muffler design, mandrel-bent tubing, and the application of proper engine-matched tubing diameter. In some vehicles Borla offers multiple sound levels (Touring, S-Type, and ATAK) to suite the individual driver's taste in vehicle sound. Borla also offers the Cat Back exhaust system which is located behind the factory catalytic converter.
Borla Axle Back systems replace the factory rear mufflers and exhaust pipe with an improvement in overall sound & performance to your truck, SUV, or car. Welded tips are standard on most systems running gas or diesel fuels.
Some of today's modern vehicles have a factory service-point in the exhaust system (flange or slip-fit) located in the exhaust tubing behind the vehicle rear axle. A Borla Axle Back performance exhaust system replaces the factory exhaust system (behind this service-point) following the same exhaust path and secured using the original vehicle hangers and rubber isolators.
Vehicles that don't have a factory service-point require “cutting" the factory exhaust system before installing a Borla Axle Back performance exhaust system. Borla includes cutting instructions and hardware to complete the installation.
Borla pioneered the use of aircraft grade 304 stainless steel tubing, a material with higher content of carbon & nickel that won't rust or corrode for automotive exhaust aftermarket.
Borla exhaust systems are manufactured in the USA and backed by a limited Borla Million Mile Warranty.
