While some companies claim breakthroughs in everything from NASA acoustical engineering to mathematically derived counter angles, we have never been able to prove any of their theories without dramatic increases in weight and/or cost. Our R&D engineers purchase our competitors’ systems and give them all the tests -- flow, horsepower, weight even including full cut-away dissections and evaluations of methods and materials. While Borla has been at the top of the high end exhaust equipment pyramid for nearly 30 years, we keep abreast of parallel technology. We never sit still. Alex Borla still spends time in all the shops looking for the next better mouse trap. He hires people with education and experience who are not afraid to think outside of the box.
