People are going to obviously be biased depending on what they have on their car.
Personally, I've heard lots a magnaflow and borla setups, and the borla always sounds better to me.
I've got a borla on my car and I enjoy the deep throaty tone everytime I step on the gas.

Another vote for Borla here! I've heard both and I prefer the Borla which is why I went with it (plus i got a killer deal)

Looks I'm only one who go with Magnaflow...
My friend has Borla with his ST170,
I have to say that the Borla sounds greater,
but I think Mag is better in perfomance.

Borla.. there is no real difference in performance. The kits from Magnaflow are actually 2.25 all the way through, while the Borla Ford Racing kits are 2.5 piping with a 2.25 restriction in the resonator (or was it the muffler?)... You can get a full 2.5 in kit from Trubendz with full 2.5in piping and no restrictions though.

From my experience.. the borla sounds sooo much better in the upper rpms.

Maybe im weird but I love the sound of the magnaflow...

Someone should post some sound clips of their cars..

i had a had a magnaflow on my ZX3 that i LOVED and i really like my borla on my svt but i still have a resonator so it isnt nearly as loud as the ZX3 but still sounds good.

what are u guys doing at taiwan?


Id like to know if just 1 muffler the car would sound Raspy?... i was at trubendz and they sell with with and wo resonator..
the other day i saw a GTI which sounded bad ass and asked him for his exhaust setup he told me Greddy exhaust and that he removd 1 muffler because it didnt sound enough for him...

so it sounds raspy with no resonator and ORP?

I have a magnaflow and i've heard borla's

I would prefer the borla if I had a turbo but both sound really nice :)

Borla is smoother, magnaflow is a bit raspier.
