Doesn't matter if it's supposed to be loud, he should still be able to hear the exhaust, even if is meant to be conservative.

yeah thats right BLK, you should hear the exhaust no matter what, I mean the stock exhaust can be heard so a new borla exhaust should definatly be heard. What other mods did you do to your car. Maybe the sound from your intake and so on is drowning out the sound of the exhaust or you might be mixing up the Two!!!!

Alright, maybe I misunderstood.

The bottom line is that you should hear a low, conservative rumble coming from your car.

You can't expect the borla to scream in pain like a $35 fart can muffler.

yeah, custom stuff with like a new (hi flow) muffler will make it loud and drone and sound like ass.

exhaust is weird too though, u might start noticing it more next week rather than today because your expectations are playing with ur head.

It's true, it's weird how your mind can mess with you.

I recently came back from school for a vacation after not driving my car for over a month.

I had forgotten how that intake sounded, it was like I had installed it all over again and was enjoying the sound :)

So, if I got a Ford racing shorty header, FC high flow cat, and a intake, it would be louder?, and wut is up with the water spitting out of the tailpipe?

u have water in ur fuel system or its just developing in the cat. the cat just cools down all the exhaust and changes some of the harmful fumes from combustion, its possible some h2o will develope. just to be safe, run some HEAT through your fuel system or iso heat. u can pick it up at any parts store. even wal mart

Wait some time and do some long highway runs. Normally exhausts need to get warm severall times. Then they become louder and the sound will be deeper.
