About this product

Part #: 49-46404

The new MACH Force XP exhaust is engineered to perform in the most extreme environments. This system is constructed from mandrel bent 4 in. 409 stainless steel tubing for maximum flow; increased horsepower; increased torque; and lower EGTs. MACH Force XP exhaust systems are the perfect combination of performance; fit; and value. All systems use factory mounting locations providing stability and hassle-free installation. High quality OE style band clamps are used for a complete 360 deg. sealing surface. A free-flowing 24 in. long muffler is used to absorb high pitch tones producing a powerful sound and unleashing all available horsepower and torque out of your rig. OE style bayonet hangers are used to maintain a stable pipe location during high vibration and high heat conditions. The bayonet tip holds the hanger bushing in place for an OE style fit that does not change with time.

What made you choose this particular product?
AFE concluded an intake spacer with rifles would allow better peak torque to be gained earlier on. I believe this is due to flow harmonics
What were you trying to accomplish by adding this product?
Give myself more peak available torque in the engine, especially in the early mid range where it seems it has a huge dip in power. and delivery
Was it easy install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Yes, Follow the instructions. I painted the spacer black instead of the brushed silver look it had. I like the stealth look for it.
Once you’ve had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
It has met my expectations, but I have not dyno'd it yet to prove if its worth it or not. My set up is unique and would require its own tune and results might vary.
Any additional comments?
I would recommend this bit as a stocking stuffer for Christmas time.
