Going to be the Borla 140400 guinea pig

I am buying the cat back system for the Hatchback, will be installing it and will post the reviews once I have it on.

Cheapest price I have found is for $640 shipped.

^^ what do you think of it? Sound? Performance-sotp gains? Any issue with drone?

Most importantly-if you had it to do all over again would you?

I would do it 10x over let's put it at that lol. I won't lie it's loud especially when you put your foot down but I love it. The sound does die out a highway speeds but when you put your foot down again there it is . To me it has the perfect racing sound, it doesn't sound like a fart can rice burner at all. And you should hear it once you take the top off the air box I swear I look to see if a Subaru is around perfect almost boxer sound

Good to know; how old are you and I ask because the opinion on how something sounds varies greatly with age, LOL!

I have Borla on just about everyone of my other vehicles and love their products.

My engine already has a growl to it with the Injen RAI, it will be interesting to hear how the Borla and Injen get along.

Did you do the install yourself? If so any tips? The instructions seem pretty easy.

I'm 19 lol but I've been around cars since I was little and I can pick out a fart can rice burner exhaust from a mile away they sound like shat and are just plain stupid, with garbage can size tips . I have a single to dual tip so that should say something that I don't have a garbage can on it lol. Oh the install is amazingly easy it's all bolt on but since I don't have a lift in my garage and I didn't have school for a week so I couldn't use the lift there either I just brought it to my local place. You'll get a Subaru boxer growl with the borla and a CAI
