Volvo C30 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 power
gains. Diameter is increased 26% over the factory system, yet weight is
decreased over 8 lbs (3.6kg). A mere muffler replacement (as some
companies offer) simply isn't the way to make power. We designed our
muffler and resonator sections from the inside out, specifically for the
Volvo C30 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 4" (102mm) ELEVATE laser etched tips
integrate with the factory Version 1.0, Version 2.0 and R-Design rear
bumpers of all model C30 model years due to our adjustable tip design.
