Check this website out HERE for exhaust, you can get it any way you want with different muffler options including the borla, though I highly recommend getting a resonator along with it, with out it, it's going to be loud. Also there are gains on the SVT by going 3", you won't loose anything. Also don't go 2.25" go 2.5" or bigger or go home lol.

yeah, that place is good, but some people have issues with fitment.. lengths are wrong sometimes... their "clamps" don't always work well...

but others dont have issues.

The clamps that come with most systems suck anyways. Fitment issues could be the installer. Probably tightening each clamp as they put it on which you shouldn't do. You put it in not clamped then adjust has needed, then tighten it down.

true... but some kits have been up to 3-4" too long in parts..

of course, i'm sure there have been plenty more that have worked/fit well.. just the bad ones always get noticed more often...

not everybody reviews things when all goes well...
