Evo X Single Exit Exhausts from MAPerformance | Evolution 10 Exhaust Options for Every Budget!

Posted on 18 April 2014

We compare the the various Evo X single exit exhaust's available in our store, and explain why a single exit may be a better choice than dual exit exhausts.

If you've done any amount of research into Evo X exhausts, you may have stumbled across dual exit and single exit Evolution 10 catbacks. Furthermore, the market is vastly overpopulated with many choices in both variations, leaving many folks wondering which is the best. Lets narrow it down to the three most common variables by comparing sound, cost, and performance. First, consider how the exhaust sounds. Single exit exhausts generally have a different sound than it's dual exit counterpart. A dual exit will typically sound a bit deeper in the higher RPM's, where single exit exhausts have been know to have a high, undesirable resonance beyond 5500rpm's. While not overwhelmingly noisy, single exit exhausts can be louder. A popular single exit Evo X catback with a deep, mellow tone is the Tomei Expreme Titanium Catback.

Where the Tomei has a more desirable tone, it costs a bit more than other units. For example, the Ultimate Racing 3" single exit catback costs almost half the price than dual exit Evo 10 exhausts, but has a higher, more resonating exhaust tone. Another factor relating to cost is the material used to make the Evolution X catback exhaust. Part of the reason the Tomei is so expensive is due in large part to the fact that it's made with Titanium rather than 304 Stainless steel. Titanium is more costly, therefore the price increase.

Dual exit Evo X catbacks have been noted for their slightly lower flow rating due to the bends needed to give it the extra outlet. While dual exit exhausts do in fact reduce power, the results are not as noticeable at stock levels versus high performance builds. High performance Evo X's will benefit from a free flowing ETS Catback Exhaust rather than a Magnaflow Dual Exit Evo X catback.

A great sounding exhaust that performs well is not going to be cheap, and low price, great sounding exhaust may not perform well over the long run. You'll have to find a happy medium and go from there! Perhaps it's a little biased, but the MAPerformance 3" Single exit catback is a great choice!

    How significant would you say the difference in performance is between single vs. dual exit?
