The factory exhaust(s) are all one piece, fully-welded designs. At the factory, they install it BEFORE the subframes, so there is nothing in the way at that point in assembly.

The aftermarket exhausts are all 2- or 3-piece bolt-together designs, so they can be installed with the factory subframes still in place.

I'm personally a Borla fanboy, but every part I've gotten from FS/FSWerks has been amazing quality. I'd have zero apprehension about trying their exhaust.
