XLR8 Performance Exhaust System are designed for function, form and style. Each exhaust system starts with T-304 stainless steel, known throughout the industry as the highest quality material practical for after-cat exhaust applications. All exhaust tubing is mandrel bent on sophisticated CNC machinery for a precise fit and uninterrupted exhaust flow. Whatüfs more, the use of T-304 stainless steel flanges offers high strength and complete resistance to harsh elements. All hangers, resonators, and tips are T-304 stainless steel as well.

The mufflers used are built specifically for each system and are designed in accord with years of racing and street development invested into the design. Each muffler is tuned to match its application for the best possible performance gain and sound quality combination. Each muffler is polished to a high gloss beautiful finish; the rest of the stainless steel system is finished in a natural satin finish.

Customer Questions


Hey, what gives? I ordered a non-resonated system and what I got has what appears to be a round muffler-looking thing in the mid looks like a resonator! Explain?


That is technically NOT a resonator. It is a PRT chamber (Purge Resonance Technology) which is built into the system to make it less noisy inside the cabin. We have more on this part published here: XLR8 Performance Exhaust: Non-Resonated System Has A Resonator In It?


Are there any additional parts required that I would need to purchase or does this package include everything I need?


This item comes complete with all gaskets and hardware needed to install. No additional parts are needed, but many customers also purchase a J-pipe to gain even more power!


I want to do from the header all the way back . Do you have a header that fits to the j-pipe, then exhaust?


Your vehicle is not be equipped with traditional "headers." Before going further, we would suggest reading this article regarding the exhaust layout on your J-Series Engine equipped vehicle: An Outline Of The Exhaust Layout On J-Series Honda V6 Engines

We can provide a complete set of exhaust components from the engine to the tips, and will be happy to consult you on the needed items.


Do you sell just the muffler? Quad tips?


XLR8 muffler/tip sections are not available separately.


Very interested in this cat-back system. I hear mix things about how over time the mufflers develop a rattle noise as if the baffle broke loose within. Can you confirm this and if there ever was a newer model to fix the situation. Love the sound and I don't want it to be a deal breaker...


We have had a few people contact us about rattles inside the mufflers or resonators. However individual experiences will always vary. Faults can happen from abuse more often than they can from defect, and you cannot rely on all testimonials to be complete and without bias. We are not prepared to say that these exhaust systems are "prone to issues," but any time you have baffles in a system it carries the possibility that a baffle can come loose iand that can be aggravating.


I would like to get this with a rv6 jpipe and wats a pcd pipe? Help pls


For more on PCDs and HFPCs, please read this article: RV6 Performance's Background on Acronyms: Trademarking PCD & HFPC


will this fit on a base 2006 acura tl with a a-spec rear lip kit


It will, as long as the A-Spec lip is one specified for a TL Type-S model.

Q:What's the hp increase with this exhaust?

In general you can expect a 5-8 hp increase with cat-back exhausts on this car.

Q:What's the ease of installation for this? Just bolt on with hardware from stock exhaust?

This is a complete bolt on system with no cutting or welding needed to install. It is generally fairly easy to install, given you have some mechanical experience and basic tools!

Q:Do all xlr8 exhaust require a tl-s bumper?

Yes, all TL-S style quads are to be used with TL-S rear bumpers. You can retrofit your rear bumper to work with a TL-S exhaust with this Type-S Rear lip

Q:i have a TL 07 not a TL-s. how do i know if i have a type s bumper?

It is most likely if you have a Base TL then your have a Base bumper. See this article for further reference: 2004-08 TL Lip Kits: A-Spec versus Type-S, and inter-changability
