    Avior Performance - Hand crafted exhaust systems - Projects,FAQ & more.

    I decided to make a bit of an info thread compiled with pics,video links and more.I will update with more content as I get it.


    My name is Alex with the help of my brother we created Avior Performance.Although we did work on other makes,we first fabricated on a Lamborghini back in 2012.Years passed until I decided to fully pursue work with the cars I really love instead of just quantity work.Based in Houston,Texas USA we hand craft everything we sell.Each system has over 20 hours into it including cutting/fitting raw materials,tack welding,full final welding and finishing.As of right now we make systems for Lamborghini Gallardo,Lamborghini Murcielago,Audi R8,Ferrari F430 and 458.If you're local and have a car we don't carry yet we will gladly make one for you.

    ***

    FAQ's

    1.What are your exhaust made of?
    All 304 stainless steel from end to end.

    2.Why don't you offer a full polished version?
    After you run your car about 10 minutes the shine will be a gold/brown color.Plus you cant see it shiny once it's installed since its completely covered by the heat shield.

    3.Do your systems carry a warranty?
    Yes 100% lifetime warranty against any kind of manufacturing defect.I am very confident in our quality.We are US based so no need to email someone in Taiwan about anything.

    4.Can you install my exhaust?
    Yes if you are in the general area,we have done many.

    5.Do you have a high pitched sounding exhaust for R8?
    NO.The Audi/Lambo group changed these engines over to odd fire for the 2009+ Gallardos and all R8's to begin with.

    What is odd and even engine firing? Watch this ---> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-s5bSQIQQsY

    The 04-08 Lambo Gallardo's were even firing and with aftermarket exhaust sound very high pitch.They also had easily replaceable cats,test pipes really brings out the pitch.An exhaust does make sound but that sound is based on the engine it's attached to as well.These model cars have 2 sets of cats permanently attached.One set is within the headers and the 2nd set is after the headers.On the 09+ Gallardo's you must remove the whole engine if you want to switch to straight headers and test pipe.The exhaust will still not sound high pitch for the mentioned odd fire reason.If someone say's their exhaust sounds high pitch then they must have not heard a 04-08 Gallardo plain and simple.

    6.Do you have any valved systems?
    Not yet but we will likely in the future.We haven't already because the v8 resonated and v10 are very civil in normal driving situations.

    7.What are your exhausts coated with?
    They are high temp ceramic coated to help a bit more with temperatures in the rear of the car.

    8.Will I get a check engine light?
    No,there is no reason you should get a CEL.There is no sensors on your stock exhaust not even 02 sensors.

    9.Will you ship international?
    Yes.I have shipped to Canada,UK and Sweden already.

    10.How much do these weigh?
    Stock unit is easily over 60lbs,our straight pipe is about 20lbs.Add maybe 3lbs more with resonators,you can hold the whole thing with 1 hand easily.

    11.How come yours is cheaper than other companies? Is it of cheaper quality?
    We use the same materials as anyone else,full warranty and made in the USA.We simply don't "exotic car tax" on our products.A lot you pay for is marketing including fancy websites,logos and so on.

    This is a direct comparison of 1 of ours with a much more expensive model I had to fix for a customer.I won't show the pic of where it was separating from 3 different welds.



    Expensive doesn't always mean quality!

    Alex is a great guy. Was one of the 1st to have the r8 v8 resonated installed. He drove up and installed it himself. Minimal drone and civil at cruising speeds, but loud AF when you step on it.

    I too pulled the trigger on a resonated one for my v8! I can't recommend Alex enough! He came out and installed. He was very professional and offered up answers to all my questions. As others have stated, not too loud while cruising but sounds amazing when you smash the pedal!!
