Magnaflow or Borla?

My g/f is trying to debate which exhaust to get. Her bro just got an 04 SVT Cobra and got Magnaflow exhaust and he recommends that. I recommended Borla. Just wanted to post up a lil poll to see what the general concensus is around here and maybe get some of your opinions

Guys the choices are Magnaflow or Borla.

Most of the SVT or regular ZX3 people on here have Borla. I don't have it but it's highly reccommended.

So I say Borla.

As mentioned, get a 2.5" exhaust. The magnaflow will actually be smaller diameter than the Borla, so that will limit future potential of your mods. And yes, the MBRP is a very nice choice for the $$$.
