• Borla Performance Industries Receives Patent

      Borla Performance Industries, a manufacturer of stainless steel exhaust systems based in Johnson City, Tenn., has been awarded a U.S. patent for a breakthrough muffler technology.

      Dubbed Acoustically-Tuned Applied Kinetics (ATAK), the technology allows Borla engineers to custom-tune exhaust sound with the precision of a graphic equalizer, according to the company. The inside of ATAK mufflers feature multiple tube-shaped cores with perforated walls. The perforation patterns of the core walls, along with their quantity, length and diameter, are varied using computer-controlled modeling to produce just the right exhaust note.

      “Borla’s ATAK technology transforms the driving experience into a form of harmonic expression by providing the driver with command of their vehicle’s sound signature to fit their state of mind,” said David Borla, vice present of sales and marketing at Borla.
