aFe Power Announces the Release of an a Cat-Back Exhaust for the 2007-13 R56, R57 and R58 MINI Cooper S
aFe Power announce the release of the all new MACH Force XP Cat-Back Exhaust system for the 2007-13 R56, R57 and R58 MINI Cooper S, P/N 49-36318.

In recent testing, this system produced 16hp and 32lbs. x ft. of torque. This exhaust system is constructed from 2.5" brushed finish, mandrel bent, 304 stainless steel and is TIG-welded. This system uses a high flow, brushed, 304 stainless steel, single-in dual out muffler which improves performance across the power band while maintaining a great tone. To finish off this system are dual aFe laser etched, 3.5" polished 304 stainless steel tips. This exhaust uses all factory hanger locations. Note: Cutting is required and should be performed by a skilled technician.

The rear cat is retained on this system to maintain a smooth deep sound but more importantly to keep the system street legal. High quality OE style flanges and band clamps are used for a complete 360 degree sealing surface. A 16" free-flowing muffler is used to absorb high pitch tones producing a powerful sound and unleashing all available horsepower and torque.

P/N 49-36318 retails for around $609.88 and is available in stores now.
