Performance. No matter what you drive, when you're an enthusiast you always want more - quicker acceleration, flatter cornering, shorter stopping distances, faster lap times. However, even if you drive a performance car, you may find that the factory's idea of performance doesn't meet your expectations. That's where we come in. We feel the need for speed just like you do, so we've stocked our digital shelves with the high performance parts that will help you make more horsepower, corner harder, stop on a dime, and cut your lap times, but most important of all, never leave you disappointed. If you're looking for exhilaration behind the wheel, browse our selection of performance car parts and truck performance upgrades and start improving your car or truck's capabilities today.

For some folks performance means one thing: horsepower, the kind of power that pins your spine to the seat back when you mash the pedal. We crave that feeling too, and we have performance upgrades from cold air intakes to camshafts to programmers so you can get the sensation. Feeling the power is essential, but because performance is a multi-sensory experience, it has to sound right too, so check out our huge selection of performance exhaust parts. We have everything from headers to cat-back exhaust systems that will not only let your engine breathe better to unleash the power, but also deliver exhaust tones that are music to the high performance ear.

Unless you only drive in a straight line, going fast requires more than just acceleration. You need powerful brakes, precise steering, and handling that provides maximum traction in the corners. Traction starts where the rubber meets the road and you won't find a better selection of performance tires and wheels anywhere. Performance parts like our drilled and slotted disc brake rotors, composite pads, multi-piston calipers, or complete brake kits will get your car hauled down quickly, while our selection of sway bars, springs, shocks, bushings, and other handling performance parts for cars will help you maximize the tire contact patch for the most traction.

But if your idea of performance has nothing to do with the pavement, you're in luck because we're much more than just performance auto parts. We've got plenty of performance accessories for Jeeps, trucks, and SUVs, from big wheels and gnarly meats to dig into the dirt, to lift kits for tire and obstacle clearance. Our performance transmission and driveline parts includes clutches, transfer case parts, driveshafts, axles and differentials that can withstand any off-road abuse. And because we know many of you prefer your trucks diesel powered, we have a wide range of diesel performance parts like intake manifolds, performance programmers, turbocharger kits, and exhaust systems including "stacks".

Ask anyone that knows anything about performance driving and they'll tell you that the seat-to-steering wheel interface (otherwise known as you) has more to do with going fast than anything you can bolt on under the hood. Performance accessories like our racing seats, steering wheels and pedals will help keep you comfortable and in control at speed. And if you're ready to get serious and test your skills at the track, we have the speedway performance accessories that are required by most sanctioning bodies including helmets, 5-point seat belt harnesses, flame resistant racing suits, gloves, and shoes.

Even if your car doesn't have the horsepower to be a real racer, at least it can look the part. Our body kits and ground effects parts include pieces like front air dams, canards, side skirts and rear diffusers that were originally developed as racing parts, to give your ride that fresh off the road course look, and nothing screams performance like a spoiler and a carbon fiber hood. But don't stop at the exterior; if your cockpit can stand some upgrading we have the custom car parts to make it happen. Monitor your powerful engine's vital signs with a set of custom gauges. We have many styles and lighting options to choose from, and gauge mounting pods for a factory like installation. And since you'll be spending so much time behind the wheel, why not upgrade your tunes with a car stereo receiver, amplifier, speakers, and subwoofer.

Item description says "Aggressive" now it does have a nice low-tone growl when you step on it, but if you're running stock headers & downpipes the car will be very silent. When I installed this on my z34 it was really silent compared to when I was running full stock with only a muffler delete. After I installed Tomei Ti downpipes it really woke up, now it has a nasty raspy growl at mid & high rpms, Ill link my instagram if you want to hear my build, again Im UpRev tuned FBO with Tomei ti downpipes so the growl you'll hear is alot louder than what you'll get running stock headers & downpipes (Im running stock headers). Anyhow, the muffler looks super good and I love the growl when you're decreasing speed, again check my IG if you need reference. https://www.instagram.com/z34kyiu_
