I was checking out exhausts for my svt 5-door and found that the magnaflow was considerably cheaper then the borla i have been drooling over for quite some time now. does anyone have one of these exhauts or a link that would show the performance of each to make my decision easier.

Yes OrangeSVT, its very obvious that you are bored, by reading all your senseless post we can all tell that.

Borla is my choice, I like the warranty and you cant beat the quality. Magnaflow would be my second choice, if I could not afford the Borla. Both happen to be great exhaust systems, either one to me would be good on a SVTF. I have Borla, and I will tell you that I'm very happy with the sound and have not had any problems. My sister has Magnaflow on her ZX3, and it sounds good, good quality and a great price.

The gains with either exhaust system are not very high, but its a exhaust system, I'm sure that you know not to expect much.

Helpful hint, there happen to be a lot of past threads about this topic, you can do a search of the SVTF Forum and get some information there if you like. [;)]

Magnaflow is good but Borla is the best sounding and is pretty much the best choice for the car

Go with the Borla, you can't beat the warranty. also, the exhaust clamps that the borla uses are different than the magnaflow, which uses old U-clamps that have been known to leak. one of my friends has magnaflow and his exhaust sounds like one big leak.

Stock exhaust sounds good enough for me I just need a lil more tone and definition but nethier of those exhausts do what i want (guess thats just cause its a 4 banger)

Im with SHORTY, personally i don't like the sound of the magnaflow. I think the borla sounds more throaty. only my opinion... You can get sound clips online, i'll try to find some and post them.

I seen someone on here posted in a thread that the Borla sounds like the Bosal. I've heard a Bosal and I don't like it. But that's my own personal taste.

I had a Borla on my last foucs (2000 SE). On my new SVT i got the magnaflow. I didn't have to pay for either , so the money factor was not there. And to tell you the truth i like the magnaflow better. [thumb]
