Find a Borla. Best sounding exhaust EVER. Or have one made, but use Borla mufflers.

Borla=LOUD and Droaney. I have worked with Borla exhausts for many years and have yet to find one I care for.. That being said, I'm old.

Hands down it is. A friend of mine had the Borla on his SVT and it was the best sounding exhaust I've ever heard. It truly made it sound like a highly tuned 4cyl that it is.

Not so, there is more than one Borla out there. The drony ones only have one muffler the good sounding one has a resonator up front. I believe it was the FR Borla was the one I heard but I can't be sure of that since it's been a while.





To the OP, find one with a resonator and a muffler. It's much easier to cut the resonator out than to have one welded in later.

If you are planning on a flex and orp save yourself a lot of money and get a 2.5" flex and have a shop add 6" to match up with the header
