love my exhaust setup. 2.5 inch custom bent flex back with true dual exhaust. cost me 110 bucks at a local muffler shop and according to the before and after dyno it made more power than the HKS i had before that. and it sounds so great! ive been wanting to make a sound clip for awhile now

The consensus says...........





2.5" Stainless Trubendz Borla kit!!!! It really does sound good, and is extremely easy to install. Here's my video clip.

Hmmm. Ok. So trubendz offers Magnaflow, Borla, and Flowmaster for 330.
Sooo indecisive

if you are stuck on name brand then go with borla. i seem to remember there being a complete work up with real dyno results on this site or the other where about a dozen different catback brands were bolted up and made 3 or more runs on the dyno on the same car in the same conditions. borla did the best and it sounds great

Resonance inside in my ride is not bad when you are going down the hwy in 5th. If you're cruising around town in lets say......2-4th and getting on it every now and then, it's noticeable but not horrible enough that I mind it and I have 32 year old ears. LOL It really echos off the cars as you pass them if you're getting into it, and I can only imagine what they are thinking. lol

No resonator. Just a stock manifold to the stock cat, to the stock flex, and then the cat-back. It's not annoying at all while cruising. Nice deep mellow tone. Now that might change once my SVT header swap is complete.........

I'd stay away from the HKS, its actually a smaller diameter. but i'd also say borla, i love mine!
