Is excited to present to the Optima community:

The 2016-2020 Kia Optima CP-E Cat Back Exhaust



Presenting the CP-E™ exhaust system for the 2016-2020 Kia Optima 2.0T. Although the stock exhaust is quiet and comfortable for daily drivers, the exhaust note is bland. CP-E has designed the Austenite™ Cat Back Exhaust to bolt directly to your stock components or to the CP-E™ QuickPower™ pipe.

Never overwhelming, the new CP-E™ sound will grab attention; not from obnoxious noise, but because the sound is exotic and unique. This newly designed CP-E™ Cat Back includes dual StealthPipes™ hidden inside the mufflers to assist in making this exhaust the perfect tone for your turbo-charged sedan. These pipes keep the exhaust at a nice tone while also eliminating drone. We have also used Ball sockets for optimum adjustment and better sealing at the connections.


CP-E products are designed & manufactured in the US
Lifetime warranty on all products made by CP-E
Laser cut 304 stainless steel w/ mandrel bent piping
3/8″ thick flanges with all exhaust piping being tig welded
Redesigned StealthPipes™
are hidden inside the mufflers compared to the 11-15's external design

**In order for this exhaust system to fit on the 2.4L models, in some cases, you will need to slightly modify the exhaust flange. All that is needed is to widen the bolt holes. The bolt holes on the 2.0T are spaced at a smaller diameter than the 2.4. This could be done within minutes at a professional installation facility.

Hands down one of the best exhaust made for the Kia Optima.

Custom Performance Engineering (CP-E) makes all of their exhaust here in the US.

They offer a lifetime warranty, so none of that 12 month limited warranty stuff.

Little to no drone at all, and the deepest growl you will find for your Optima.

New shots of the new exhaust are up!
