"Mitsubishi i-MiEV performance mufflers, exhaust systems and full cat backs are a proven way to upgrade your i-MiEV. Engineered and designed exhaust components will increase your horsepower, torque and improve your i-MiEV's engine response. Our mufflers are generally lighter than Aftermarket exhaust systems and performance mufflers are lighter in weight and have less restrictive air flows. Designed to produce a deep throaty sound and engineered for performance gains that you can notice when you drive your i-MiEV. Mitsubishi i-MiEV performance exhaust components, the perfect auto accessory."

They make sure you have a quality job in the quickest time possible.
