It must be your iphone, because I was just able to watch it. I just listened to the clip of the Borla and the Ford Racing exhaust and they very similar if not the same. The Borla sounds to me like at idle it's a little quieter. It's hard to tell though since the cameras are in different positions.

I wish it Borla or Ford would just say they are the same or different so that I could stop having the dilemma of choosing which one.

Usually the Ford Racing exhaust system will have an additional resonator not found on the Borla system. However the Ford Racing exhaust system is made by Borla for Ford Racing.

By looking at pics posted in these exhaust threads, it appears that they both have 1 resonator and 1 muffler. But are those different internally? I just want something that will be quiet under normal use, but to offer a little extra something when I get a little heavy footed.

Does anyone know where I can get this exhaust for a 5dr Hatch that includes the flanged mid-pipe? I'd rather not keep the second cat...

I was under the impression that the pipe you are talking about was included, just people with PZEV cars were supposed to install it. Could be wrong...

I couldn't really tell based on the picture on page 3 and the Borla website doesn't show the flanged pipe.
