Vorsteiner has developed a full cat back 100% titanium exhaust system that weighs 38 lbs (16.8 kg) less than the stainless steel factory system. The system releases 14 HP and 13.23 lb/ft of torque.
It's a bit out of the ordinary to cover individual tuning components here at WCF. However, after looking at these images sent by Vorsteiner we thought some of you would appreciate it given the complexities of welding titanium in an inert oxygen free environment.
We've already seen Vorsteiner's CSL inspired BMW M3 kit and now, they have completed development of a full cat back 100% titanium exhaust system. The entire system weighs 38 lbs (16.8 kg) less than the stainless steel factory system at 55 lbs (25 kg). While allowing more efficient air flow and reducing back pressure, the system releases 14 HP and 13.23 lb/ft of torque. Here are the details:
+ Full Titanium cat back performance system
+ Peak Horsepower Gains: 14hp
+ Peak Torque Gains: 13.23 lb/ft
+ Titanium 90mm tips with optional Blue Torched Finish
+ Extreme weight savings 17 lbs vs. 55 lbs (Factory Stainless Unit)
+ Factory bolt-on fitment with no modifications required
+ Sporty Formula 1 car tone with deeper tone & no interior drone
+ Distinctive Titanium sound characteristics
+ Vorsteiner Laser etched Logo on Tips with adustable settings
