The Elevate Volvo XC70 Performance Exhaust System is the only true 3" free flow exhaust system for the Volvo XC70 owner looking to maximize performance and looks. It is manufactured from 100% T304 stainless steel and 100% mandrel bent throughout for optimal flow. The XC70 Performance 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 XC70 turbo and produces optimal power and torque.
The ELEVATE XC70 Sport Exhaust is the only, no compromise system available. The XC70 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 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 XC70 system: 48lbs (21.7kg)
ELEVATE XC70 system: 28.5lbs (13kg)
XC70 Sports cat-back Review by Manuel Collazo
I received my cat-back today and installed it during lunch! I couldn't wait to hear it, and how beautifully made piece it is, a shame it has to go under the car! Just perfect fit and awesome sound! (Posted on 4/12/2016)
