The stock exhaust on the svt's is amazing, but I want it louder!
Borla sounds like stock, except deeper, angrier, and a bit louder. Not OMFGRACECAR loud but "Oooohh that sounds nice" loud. It's loud enough to turn heads and make people smile, but not loud enough to turn heads and make people sneer. And of course, an ORP will make any exhaust louder.
Is it worth buying a full exhaust system?
