            We are pleased to announce the addition of JBA Performance Exhaust to our growing family of exhaust brands.

             Our exhaust division began in 2000 after acquiring Ermie Immerso Enterprises (Thunderbird Products). The Patriot brand was added in 2001 to cover our growing line of Street Rod and Muscle Car exhaust products. We also have continued to manufacturer air cooled VW exhaust under the Thunderbird brand. The original Doug’s Headers, a 51 year old header manufacturer, was added to our company’s exhaust division in January 2005. Long thought of as a premiere header line, Doug’s Headers has become an excellent addition to our company’s brands and product offerings with a wide selection of muscle car headers and C.A.R.B. approved applications for the truck, SUV and motorhome markets.

            JBA has been a cutting edge exhaust development and manufacturing company for over 22 years, leading the industry in header and exhaust products designs for late-model emissions controlled vehicles. Their famous Cat4ward® Headers with the patented JBA Firecone® merged collectors have set the standard for late model exhaust performance improvements by greatly improving the engine’s volumetric efficiency.
