No it's a trubendz piping with a Borla muffler.

piping is piping, trubendz quality is second to none. Borla sells a catback that uses a different muffler than the borla muffler you can buy. Trubendz uses the muffler one, not the kit one. I believe the borla has a resonator in there too. I have had 2 trubendz stainless catbacks, and a flex, I would go with that for the money you can't beat it. It sounds exactly the same, is actually a bit easier to install and costs 200 bucks less. Get stainless, it'll outlast your car. Mine has been on for 50k miles with real abuse, nitrous, offroad racing etc and it still looks like brand new. It's your money, but I've seen/installed both. Borla is overpriced imo. Good luck

The Borla SVT has a resonator, the non-SVT version doesn't. Also the BORLA SVT is 2.5" piping compared to the 2.25" piping for the non-SVT.

Honestly though, I have heard nothing bad against Trubendz. Also, BORLA's true catback is very $$$ as I am sure you have found out since your looking into Trubendz.

Wow could you be any farther up trubendz ass?

They have great customer service, like when you call, they never answer

Or how about the last 3 flexpipes from them I got and 2 didn't fit properly.

Btw last time I looked a borla setup was $ 100 more than a trubendz not $ 200, thanks for the misinformation.

Oh wait, they sponsor you, now I get it.

Borla for all cars is 2.5"

Mcnews is now having their own 2.5" flexpipes built in stainless steel, they will also be coming with a special flange to mount directly to an SVT Borla for those who want to use it.

i've got a trubendz borla cat back and i love it, nice sound and it went on really easily. the nice part is they offer a resonator if you decide to go with it, i might when i end up getting race headers and a flex.

so basically u guys think i could call em and order the 2.5 in borla stainless steel for my ZTS it will sound exactly the same as the borla correct? i just thought about ordering thru them cause they are cheaper but if it doesnt sound the same and dont have same performence i can put out more for the true borla ..
