The Fabrication, Finishing and Assembly Phase

Manufacturing takes place both internally and externally to APR while finishing and assembly is completed in-house. APR’s fabrication team sends each cast component through the ceramic vibrating tumblers to smooth and de-burr surface imperfections. Each component is then cleaned by hand and prepared for assembly.

APR’s fabrication experts TIG weld each component, creating reliable, high quality and attractive welds. Each component is back-purged with argon during the process ensuring the weld is strong and consistent, as well as clean throughout. With this process complete, the APR Cast Inlet Downpipe Exhaust System is born!
