to pick up a few extra ponies.

aftermarket has emissions/noise
standards that have to be met
and can utilize more costly, high-tech materials to cut weight and
further increase performance.

and XP 4 are all rippers in stock
form, but there are many companies making exhaust systems
that will significantly improve their
performance. We put together this
guide to help you decide which
one’s right for your ride!
