2014-2018 Silverado/Sierra 1500 ATAK Cat-Back Exhaust by Borla
BORLA has announced the development of a revolutionary new exhaust
technology that enables their engineers to deliver unprecedented vehicle-specific control
over the acoustical note of an exhaust throughout the RPM range, while retaining 100% of the
power-adding capabilities of BORLA’s patented Multicore design.
Called ATAK (Acoustically-Tuned Applied Kinetics), this exclusive
technology produces the highest available dB (decibel) levels in the BORLA street-legal
lineup, and is designed for high-performance purists who prefer exhaust notes over their
stereos. The focus of ATAK is to pump the volume while retaining clarity of sound, at the
same time avoiding the drone and distortion typically found in louder exhausts. With ATAK,
the sound output is tuned like a graphic equalizer to shape and focus sound waves for
optimum high-volume output.
The development of each ATAK system begins with extensive study of each
vehicle’s acoustical properties. The technology is based on custom-tuned attributes of the
internal muffler cores, which are calibrated on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis to deliver the
most desirable sound. BORLA is now shipping Cat-Back and/or Rear Section ATAK exhaust
systems for a wide variety of popular applications.
