BORLA PERFORMANCE INDUSTRIES is the leader in the design and manufacture of stainless
steel performance exhaust. Borla began two decades ago as a manufacturer
of exhaust systems for such "concours classics" as Rolls-Royce
and Ferrari cars and have evolved into the premier manufacturer of today’s
performance vehicles for the street, off-road, and racing.
BORLA is committed to providing world class exhaust
products which surpass the expectations of its customers.
To that end, their facility is complete with a state-of-the
art test and development center where they are continually
improving their manufacturing efficiency and standards.
Borla has pioneered a variety of improvements in the
design of performance exhaust systems. Alex Borla currently
holds three US patents for innovative exhaust system
technology, and the company has won numerous "Best
New" product awards in the industry. Every BORLA
header and cat-back(tm) system is made from T-304 stainless
steel (superior to 409 or aluminized steel) employing
mandrel-bent tubing, all-welded construction, and is
designed for accurate fit and easy installation. Over
26 years experience and special merge collector technology
provide the ultimate in power and endurance.
The performance advantages of a BORLA are widely recognized.
The top engine builders in the racing world rely on
BORLA exhaust for maximum performance. In fact, BORLA
is at the forefront of the movement toward responsible
racing with our full line of patented, award and race-winning
racing mufflers that not only maintain a race engine’s
power, but in some instances actually add power. This
technology is incorporated into BORLA exhaust for the
street, providing 7-10% increased horsepower and torque
when you plant your foot, and improved gas mileage
at cruising speeds.
Why Stainless Steel?
Millions of exhaust systems are replaced every year
due to corrosion and poor performance. Automotive exhaust
gases are a mix of carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen,
unburned hydrocarbons and moisture. These gases condense
and attack the system internally. Elements such as
corrosive salts, moisture and mud contribute to exterior
deterioration. These elements combined with equipment
vibration, high temperatures, emission control requirements,
uneven road surfaces, and varying traffic patterns
make it easy to understand the need and demand for
a long-lasting exhaust system. BORLA systems are built
to withstand these destructive conditions -- we guarantee
it for a Million Miles.
BORLA exhaust is built of aircraft-quality T-304 stainless
steel -- stainless inside and out, not mild steel,
not aluminum, not coated aluminum, not just wrapped
with stainless on the outside for show. Coating techniques,
such as aluminizing, can somewhat prolong the life
of mild steel, but coatings suffer at the weld points.
And, comparing aluminized steel to T-304 stainless
steel is like comparing gold-plated metal to solid
gold! T-304 stainless steel has the highest chromium
content, making it the most resistant to corrosion
and therefore the most desirable material for a long-lasting
exhaust system. Note: Only the flanges are not stainless.
In our twenty-year experience, we have found the 3/8"--1/2" flanges
are so thick they will never affect the performance
or longevity of the system.
