The Elevate S60 Performance Exhaust System is the only true 3" free flow exhaust system for the Volvo S60 owner looking to maximize performance and looks. It is manufactured from 100% T304 stainless steel and 100% mandrel bent throughout for optimal flow. The ELEVATE S60 Sport Exhaust System muffler features a unique collection chamber to maintain exhaust velocity without restriction. Appropriate sounds are produced-just the right amount of snarl under acceleration, a nice burble at idle, and only slightly louder than factory at cruising speeds. Our design allows quick spooling of the S60 turbo and produces optimal power and torque.
The ELEVATE Sport Exhaust is the only, no compromise system available. The S60 being a single turbo design, only one exhaust outlet comes from the engine (through the turbo). We utilize a single, 3" design from flange through tip for the best flow. The factory and some competitors split the exhaust signal with a "Y" connector into two smaller pipes most of the length of the car. Introducing a "Y" in the exhaust stream greatly increases backpressure and limits flow-not the way to make power. Single, large diameter tubing is what our testing has proven to be best.
The system includes all components past the catalytic converter ("cat back") including gaskets, hardware and clamps. It can be easily installed with its clamp-together design or can be welded by any muffler shop if desired. The system features slip design fitment compatible with the ELEVATE Rear Bumper or factory bumpers (some trimming may be required on some models). Weight savings is 19.5lbs (8.9kg) or 41% lighter than the factory system!
Factory S60 system: 48lbs (21.7kg)
ELEVATE S60 system: 28.5lbs (13kg)
Extremely good sounding Review by David from Denmark
The exhaust it self sounds really good, i did have to switch over the mid mounts and turn them 90• for a better fitment!
Im getting the 3.5” downpipe, with green injectors, intercooler kit. Then swap over to a 18t turbo with a remap!

Great, but.. Review by Ryan
The system sounds great after installation, and I'm very satisfied in that regard. However, the oval tip does not fit the factory 2005 S60 2.5T bumper. I'm at the point where I'll probably buy a different tip rather than alter my current one to make this work. My cutout is round, and this is far too wide. (Posted on 3/10/2016)
