The ELEVATE Volvo C70 T5 Performance Exhaust System has been completely designed in-house to absolutely maximize flow, increasing torque and horsepower throughout the power band. Dyno proven gains show +13hp and +12lbft of torque (both measured at the wheels) are accompanied by a great sound with just the right amount of exhaust snarl under acceleration. Creating a true catalytic converter-back system of 3" (76mm) diameter fully mandrel bent tubing is the only way to accomplish significant gains. Diameter is increased 26% over the factory system, yet weight is decreased over 8 lbs (3.6kg). A mere muffler replacement simply isn't the way to make power. We designed our muffler from the inside out specifically for the Volvo C70 taking into account engine displacement, flow characteristics, power levels, and sound attenuation to create a system with optimum power gains without excessive sound or droning in the interior while at cruising speeds. This simply cannot be accomplished using "off the shelf" components like most "tuners" use.
Our 3" diameter design maximizes power and torque. The stock exhaust is 2.3" (58mm), and most other competitor exhaust systems are 2.5" (63mm) diameter-simply not enough of a difference to extract maximum power from your Volvo.
Constructed entirely of T304 stainless steel for long lasting performance with thick flanges to eliminate exhaust leaks. All tubing features a semi-polished finish while the resonator, muffler and tips have a full polished finish for amazing looks. The system includes all components (gaskets and hardware) needed for installation and is of bolt-on construction. It is recommended that the three slip-fit and clamped sections have a tack weld or two applied to prevent anything from moving. Bolts directly to either the factory downpipe or the ELEVATE 3" Downpipe. Dual polished tips integrate with the factory rear bumper openings.
Installation note: On some C70 variants, short tip extensions will need to be made in fit the rear bumper. This is easily handled by any exhaust shop.

I love this exhaust! It sounds great and you can definitely feel the power gains in the low rpms. My only problem with the exhaust is that it does not fit the c70. The muffler tips are not long enough. They hang underneath my bumper. Don said that my car might have a longer bumper than normal but i believe that this exhaust was intended for the shorter wheel base c30. After paying almost a grand for a part thats specified to your vehicle, you’d expect it to fit. Probably gunna cost around another 150 for the new pipes, welds, and labor to get it seated correctly behind the bumper. My exhaust shop did not have the right pipes during install so I have to find a new shop, until then the mufflers are still seated under my bumper. I will probably buy more elevate parts but hopefully the next one actually fits my car without modification like a “bolt on oem direct replacememt part” should fit.
The first time I started the car with the Elevate exhaust installed, the sound was music to my ears. Loud enough to turn a few heads, but not so loud it draws unwanted attention. It is still perfectly manageable to carry on a conversation in the vehicle, not that you will want to listen to anything other than your car’s amazing sound. But visual and audible cosmetics are only half of the benefits. Elevate’s cat-back system is dyno proven to give performance gains, even your butt dyno will be quite pleased with the results of this purchase.
