Where: www.tomeiusa.com, 949.855.6577
How Much: $1290
New to Tomei's Extreme line is their titanium exhaust for the Mitsubishi Evo X and is the first exhaust under the Extreme line, which makes us think: why don't they make it for more applications? (We've got to see if this will fit our Ralliart Sportback project car.) Constructed of 1mm titanium, the piping is 80mm and tip is 115mm. T-bolt clamps and springs hold the exhaust together for the absolute weight savings and performance gains. Burnt blue hazes cover the tip and muffler while the tubing shows off the sectional welds.
