It's possible. Aftermarket exhausts have been shown to give minimal to no gains over the stock SVT exhaust. Plus without a tune, the ECU might not know how to properly utilize an upgraded exhaust. Or perhaps Borla/Shelby just haven't dyno'd and documented the before/after yet. IIRC the Borla kit is still a work in progress at this point, and hasn't been officially released.
