Varex mufflers

Anyone running the XForce Varex mufflers? Seems like an interesting alternative to GTHaus.

Re: Varex mufflers

$1,200 for the catback? Cant find any videos

Cat-Back System with Stainless Steel Twin 3" Cat-Back Exhaust System With Dual-Side 4" Tips

I did find this one last night, no clue what the system is but it sounds like garbage:

Re: Varex mufflers

They apparently offer valved mufflers that go from straight pipe to muffled through muffler chambers.

Re: Varex mufflers

I've been investigating these as well and emailed them on a set up. I'm tired of waiting for a GThaus and with them pushing back delivery dates again, I think I'm going X-Force.

Re: Varex mufflers

What size should we get? I honestly don't know the inlet/outlet size of the resonators.
I hope those videos aren't these Varex mufflers bc it doesn't sound to nice. I think they're X-Force cat-back system is kinda throaty though and for $800 not a bad deal to possibly try out.

Re: Varex mufflers

We just got off the phone with Gt Haus and the exhaust is pushed back to the end of November now. We have the AFE on ours and we love it. We also have them in stock.

Re: Varex mufflers

I am running the aFe cat-back on my 2016 purchased from Solis and it does sound good. There is just a tad too much drone around 1500-2000 RPM than I would like in my daily driver. So I stumbled across the Xforce Varex mufflers that are valved and I have since been considering simply swapping out the aFe mufflers for the Varex mufflers so I can have the best of the flowing exhaust but now with control similar to GThaus but at a fraction of the cost.

I also admit being confused between the aFe Mach Force and Xforce as I thought they were one in the same.

On a separate thread I learned that another SRT is running the Varex VMK52-300 mufflers and is very happy with the sound.

Re: Varex mufflers

X-force is a company. I don't see those VMK 52-300's?

Re: Varex mufflers

I didn't see the part number either on the Xforce website but when you google the part number it shows that Summit Racing sells the mufflers that is depicted to be center in and offset out just like our rear mufflers. I think the VK02 control kit is also needed. So ~$600 for the two mufflers and the control kit and then the cost of a muffler shop to weld the varex mufflers on.

Re: Varex mufflers

Still a ton cheaper than a GTHaus. Summit Racing is one of XForce's US distributor, that's the link they sent me when I inquired about where to get the XForce.
