Borla??

Does anyone have a borla exhaust on their foci? If so give me your opinions, I have been looking into a borla exhaust for my foci, but I rather here feed back from people who already have it and not here customer reps say how good they are.

highest quality, deep sounding, worth the money, nice power gain...only thing is that the tip seems to tarnish every once and a while.

Kickn is prob referring to my tip tarnishing every couple of months, thats cuz I have a race header. Just clean the tip and it will shine like brand new.

i have the magnaflow and its not loud at all for an exhaust... so if the borla is quieter than its there with stock... btw i love my magnaflow... great power gain... and an incredible sound.

I'm running a borla xs pro muffler on 2.25 stainless tubing, best sound i've heard out of a 4 banger. My buddy has a magnaflow system, but i must say the borla definetly has a better tone.
