PRI 2011: Stainless Works Adds Applications and Affordability
Enthusiasts looking for top quality exhaust components are well acquainted with Stainless Works, and at the 2011 PRI show the company is highlighting new applications, interesting concepts in late model exhaust accessories, and a new line of value-oriented exhausts. Highlights of their line include cat back systems and long tube headers for 5th Gen Camaros, C6 Corvettes, and the current Cadillac CTS-V.
Blue Oval fans can also take advantage of Stainless Works’ headers for both 3-valve and Coyote Mustangs, Raptors, and F-150’s, and for those who are looking for a little more bark from their late-model pony car, SW’s new Sideburners offer a unique way to add a performance sound without going to the expense of replacing an entire cat- or axle-back factory system.
Available for the current Camaro, Challenger, and Mustang, Sideburners tap off a small amount of exhaust flow ahead of the factory silencers and redirect it to the sides of the car, exiting via hidden tips tucked beneath the rocker panels. With factory exhausts providing relatively unrestricted flow (compared to the horrible crush-bent monstrosities previously seen beneath the Big Three’s V8 performance cars), Sideburners provide what a lot of owners are looking for – better sound, without the hassle of an exhaust swap.
In another nod to providing customers with what they want at a price they can afford, Stainless Works has also rolled out their new Stainless Power line of value-oriented long-tube headers. Built to Stainless Works specs, these headers offer the same engineering as their premium siblings at a considerably lower price. How much lower? Try a suggested retail of $699 for 2010+ Camaro off-road headers ($899 with high-flow cats). Applications for the 2011-up Mustang and Raptor are following close behind the Camaro pipes, with more on the way.
