1997-2004 Chevrolet Corvette Base Cat-Back Exhaust System S-Type Classic Part # 140017
BORLA® Performance has created quite a buzz with Vette owners! This incredibly popular 2-tip Cat-Back™ (PN140017 - dubbed the “Stinger” on the Internet) features "S-Type" muffers, smaller round mufflers with a center-in/center-out configuration givinga more aggressive sound and higher flow. BORLA® offers a variety of options for the C5, C6 and Z06. Choose from several tip styles and muffler designs. Cat-Backs™ and Rear Sections are available with either the highly popular “S-Type” muffler or the “Touring” muffler. The “S-Type” is a smaller, round muffler with a center-in/center-out configuration giving a more aggressive sound and higher flow. For those who prefer it on the milder side, we have the “Touring” muffler -- a larger case producing less aggressive sound. Some come with an assortment of tip designs. Across the country engine builders, Corvette shops and enthusiasts have proclaimed the “S-Type” by BORLA as “the system no one can beat”. BORLA has once again set the pace in the Corvette performance exhaust world. Others only wish they were genuine BORLA. The horsepower is incredible, but the BORLA growl similar to a NASCAR backing off for a hard turn at Daytona is the part that puts a smile on everyone’s face. It just says POWER. Make no mistake -- this is an aggressive exhaust system. Not for sissies. Borla, the original pioneers of high quality, austinetic stainless steel (superior to 400 series and aluminized steel) free flow exhaust utilizes its patented, award and race winning technology to deliver quality, durability, sound, performance gains and enhanced fuel economy. All BORLA street products are assembled in the USA and carry the famous BORLA written Million-Mile Warranty.

Alex Borla currently holds several US patents for innovative exhaust system technology, and the company has won numerous "Best New Product" awards in the industry. Every BORLA Cat-Back™ system, Header and Rear Section is made from austenitic stainless steel (superior to 409 or aluminized steel) employing mandrel-bent tubing, all-welded construction, and is designed for accurate fit and easy installation. Nearly 30 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.
BORLA exhaust is built of aircraft-quality austenitic 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.INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
