I'd have to agree with that. A local person around here had a Borla on his SVT and it was by far the best sounding exhaust I've ever heard on a focus. It really made it sound like a sport bike or something like that. Well maybe I shouldn't say that but it made it sound like a tuned 4cyl that it really is. On a normal zetec I'm not so sure, the SVT's sound a little different than the normal zetecs do.

best place to buy a borla muffler?

sleepyboy 12-07-2012 08:57 PM

The internet? [dunno]

I know this site HERE has them and many different piping and size options too.

Lol I figured the Internet. Just trying to see if there was a good place instead of the muffler shop

Yeah I wouldn't get it from a muffler shop. Go to Borla and look for the exhaust kit and muffler you want and then plug that part number into google shopping. That's what I usually do when looking for parts. It's how I found the SVT clutch kit for a ridiculously low price compared to everywhere else.

Yep find the part number for the Borla exhaust then search the interwebs for the best price. Gonna be around 400-600 new I believe. Used ones will pop up on the Buy Sell Trade section of this forum every now and then, that's how I got mine.

Oh and the Borla kit is from the flex pipe back and includes the resonator, muffler, mandrel bent tubing (2.5 inch), and all the hardware you need. Installation is a piece of cake. (Removal of stock exhaust can be a pain based on level of rust you have.)

Borla or Magnaflow... You can't go wrong with either. Check out CFM (Central Florida Motorsports) they are a sponser on the forum. They will price match Magnaflow CB exhaust systems if you can find one cheaper price anywhere on the web. The Borla CB system is $599 at CFM.

I'm getting ready to have my headers wraped, instal a CFM "street" HFC, CFM Flex Pipe and a Magnaflow CB system (all brand new parts); and have it all done all at once with obviously all new gaskets and exhaust hangers.
