|BORLA Performance Industries has announced the introduction of the CrateMuffler, a new line of engine-specific performance mufflers. As a tailored alternative to universal mufflers, the BORLA CrateMuffler has been developed to optimize the sound and power of crate and custom-built motors. Available in your choice of unique BORLA sound level technologies, including ATAK and S-Type mufflers. The new CrateMuffler line has been designed and engineered from scratch to deliver unrivaled performance for specific Ford, Chevrolet and Mopar motor configurations.
With the popularity of crate engine installations and engine swaps, the BORLA CrateMuffler Program is unique because it gives car builders and drivers the opportunity to fit an exhaust that was designed for that specific application. Before now, muffler choice was simply a packaging issue – finding the universal size that would fit the available space, with sound and noise levels being a secondary consideration. However, BORLA set about developing its CrateMuffler program that was designed specifically to optimize the output and sound of the most popular crate engine conversions.
The company has also taken this concept a stage further by offering its proprietary muffler sound technology that allows drivers to select from one of three distinct BORLA sound levels, including the patented ATAK technology, S-Type and Touring. Each of these CrateMuffler variations delivers a different level of aggressive sound and volume.
The race-bred ATAK muffler technology delivers the highest decibel level available in the street-legal BORLA lineup. It provides robust exhaust notes that are still acceptable for residential driving. The BORLA S-Type muffler also delivers enhanced performance with a throaty, aggressive sound under acceleration but at a reduced volume level.
Both the ATAK and S-Type mufflers can be moderated with the optional CrateMuffler Resonator, which is designed to attenuate the overall sound level without degrading performance. It can be fitted in addition to the ATAK or S-Type mufflers to give car builders even greater control over their project’s exhaust note.

Borla also developed a premium line of optional hardware accessories to allow installation of the CrateMuffler products. These include bracketry designed specifically for the CrateMuffler line, with corresponding hangers, tubing, isolators and endplates. The CrateMuffler brackets, which are available separately, are sized for a precise fit with 2.25”, 2.5”, and 3” diameter exhaust tubing.
The Borla CrateMuffler Endplate Bracket Kit creates a hanger system, which can be removed for servicing. It also allows unlimited customization possibilities, including polishing, color-matching and more for car builders wishing to add creative details.
The Borla 8-Piece Hanger Kit is designed to complement the Borla Endplate Brackets (PN 60581) and Borla Tubing Brackets (PN 60578, 60579 or 60580), which complete the Borla CrateMuffler hardware system. This complete system will enable builders to design a styled hanger that is tailored to the vehicle.
The Borla Tube Brackets are designed to complement the aesthetics of the Borla CrateMuffler and require less time to install, thanks to a flexible system that allows a unique, custom appearance to be created.

In addition to the installation options, enhanced sound and significant reduction or elimination of unwanted drone, the BORLA CrateMuffler line delivers a degree of improved vehicle handling from its lighter weight and improved gas flow when compared to heavy, stock exhaust systems. The efficient design and lighter construction also helps provide improved overall fuel consumption, when driven appropriately.
According to David Borla, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, the new CrateMuffler line represents a product breakthrough from Borla. “We’re very excited about our new engine-specific CrateMuffler line and the high-performance standards we’ve engineered into the various engine platforms,” he said. “We’ve finally unlocked the mystery to providing exhaust solutions for custom car builds by focusing exclusively on the sound profile of individual engines. We listened to what people were asking for – a purpose-built muffler that really captures the unique Borla sound while integrating perfectly into a high-end custom build. In response to this, we have developed a solution that finally makes the car sound as good inside the cabin as it does from the outside. In fact, the days of tolerating objectionable frequencies inside the car in order to get the car to sound the right way on the outside are over – you no longer have to suffer inside the car to sound great outside.”
All BORLA exhaust systems are hand made in the USA from aerospace-grade, T-304 stainless steel, which provides lasting durability against rust and corrosion. In fact, BORLA is so confident in the quality of its products that everything is backed by its industry leading Million Mile Warranty. For more information: Million Mile Warranty.
