Scion Exhaust

Exhaust Systems are a tricky thing, as the best exhaust for your Scion is the one that sounds the best to -your- ears. Much the same way as your favorite craft beer may not be the same one your buddy prefers, it's in the eyes and ears of the beholder. That's why we produce special videos that let you HEAR the SOUND of the exhausts we offer. We offer many aftermarket parts and accessories as well, since we're not like your average exhaust and muffler shop. Choosing an exhaust for your vehicle isn't as straightforward as it was back in the Muscle-Car days - Our Modification Experts can recommend an exhaust that suits the character you want your exhaust to exude.

Since we've built many popular enthusiast vehicles ourselves, we've got the experience to let you know about issues you may encounter and offer advice you'll only get from another enthusiast. In fact, some of our staff drive FR-S's themselves!

There are many ways to get more power out of your Scion's boxer engine, and often you'll find optimal power with a certain combination of performance parts working together to make your engine run more efficiently and make more horsepower at the wheels as well as improve that awful dip in your Scion's torque curve.


We invite you to chat with our Modification Experts. We have several specialists on staff that offer a wealth of technical expertise on Boxer Performance. If you're looking for something specific, just ask! We can probably get it for you.

What types of Exhaust Systems are available for my Scion?
The design of an exhaust system varies depending on what parts of an exhaust system are replaced. Systems can be either bolt on or weld-in, depending on style and manufacturer. Exhaust systems are typically offered as header-back, cat-back or axle-back, which refer to how much of the exhaust system is included in that kit.

Usually, cat-back or header back is best for performance and sound improvements, whereas Axle-Back is more a great option if you are simply after a better exhaust tone but don't want to spend a lot. While less effective, because there is much less of the exhaust system replaced, axle-back setups are usually less expensive and make less of an alteration to the vehicle, which is handy if you're really worried about voiding your warranty. We offer exhaust systems for Scion from Ark Performance, Magnaflow, Perrin and HKS.

Axle-Back Exhaust
This is the best option for those on a tighter budget or mainly after sound or aesthetics. This type of system usually only replaces the mufflers aft of the rear axle, hence "axle-back". Many manufacturers offer Axle-Back options including but not limited to: Remus Exhaust.

Cat-Back Exhaust

This is the most common choice for upgrading your exhaust system. This type of exhaust system includes different mufflers like an Axle-Back system but also includes larger diameter exhaust tubing and spans the length of the exhaust system aft of the catalytic converters, hence the term "Cat-Back". This type of exhaust system is more expensive, but offers tangible performance gains as well as an improvement in sound and aesthetics. An even wider variety of Cat-Back systems are available from the finest names in exhaust, including: Ark Performance, Berk Technology, Borla, HKS, Magnaflow, Perrin, Takeda and Tanabe.




What are headers for my Scion and what do they do?

Headers, as they are commonly called, are the exhaust manifolds - most commonly, "headers" refers to a high performance exhaust manifold. They can be manufactured in cast iron, cast aluminum, 304 Stainless Steel or even exotic materials like Formula-One grade Inconel 625 alloy. In the case of a naturally aspirated or supercharged (non-turbo) vehicle, the exhaust manifolds are connected to the exhaust ports on the Cylinder Head of the engine and channels exhaust gases out of the engine and direct them into the exhaust pipe at the outlet of the headers. These offer performance increases by smoothing out the flow of exhaust gas out of the engine, allowing the engine to operate more efficiently and thereby make more power. the enhanced design can remove or relocate catalytic converters integrated into the OEM manifolds in some applications and some are engineered for precise equal-length manifold runners ("equal length headers") for even greater gains and efficiency. Supercharged engines in particular, will respond more to a set of headers than a naturally aspirated car. We offer Headers/Exhaust Manifolds from Borla and other fine exhaust manufacturers.



Downpipes (front pipe)/Mid Pipes
The downpipe is a part of the exhaust system usually almost exclusively found on turbocharged vehicles. On a turbocharged car, upgrading the downpipe will decrease spool up times, increase power and throttle response. A handful of Naturally Aspirated Downpipes do exist, and such is the case for the FR-S/BRZ. The Downpipe connects the header collector outlet to the rest of the exhaust system. Many OEM downpipes feature integral catalytic converters, which are often highly restrictive. Performance downpipes streamline the flow of exhaust gases out of the engine for better throttle response and more power and often either omit the catalytic converter or replace it with a high performance unit. modbargains offers downpipes from Berk Technology, Borla and Tanabe.
