What Is VR Performance?

VR Performance is, as the name suggests, the performance division of the Vivid Racing brand. Under the VR Performance line, we offer everything from blow-off valves, shift knobs, and brake lines to lowering links, springs, headers, and complete cat-back exhaust systems. Everything you could possibly need to amp the performance and riding quality of your vehicle is available through the VR Performance store. Born from a passion for going further and getting the most out of our vehicles, the VR Performance line will unleash the true potential of your ride in terms of aesthetics, power, and functionality.

VR Performance Lowering Links

VR Performance is well-known for its high-quality lowering links, which work with your vehicle's factory air suspension to seamlessly lower its ride height. The lowering links are fully adjustable and replace the stock ones which control the air ride. By changing the linkage length of the air ride sensors, this gives you a much more desired ride height in all modes. Best of all, these links snap right in place of the non-adjustable ones and fit in seamlessly for a simple installation process that is also easily reversible. These durable metal lowering links give your ride the perfect lowered look without that pesky wheel gap and delivers a smooth performance with the OEM system. Boasting a rigid construction, this product was made to withstand the elements of both daily and more spirited driving to deliver maximum performance for a long time.

VR Performance Exhausts

VR Performance's latest release of cat-back exhausts is nothing less than exceptional. We offer a series of titanium and stainless-steel variants for a wide range of makes and models. Our highly sought after Valvetronic exhausts are designed to specifically increase the sound and performance of your particular vehicle. Crafted from high-quality materials, these exhausts feature brilliant robotic TIG welding as well as smooth bends to deliver optimal flow and power gains. And, thanks to the cutting-edge Valvetronic design, your OEM valves are reused so you can change the tone of your vehicle with just the push of a button. Electronic valves are placed on the outlet of the muffler which control the sound so you can go from mild to wild in seconds. When closed, the exhaust flow goes through the single outer tip which is quieter. However, when the valve is opened, the exhaust goes straight out to deliver an exhilarating tone that demands attention.
