This is strictly a HP/flow thread, not a sound thread.

Looking at a 2.5" TruBendz Aluminized exhaust system. Options are a Borla 5x8 or a Magnaflow 6x14.

Do we know which effectivly flows better and creates more horsepower? Would it be safe to assume the 5x8 Borla would be lighter than the 6x14 Magnaflow? [???:)]

Thanks!

There will be no noticable difference in performance between the two as long as they are the same diameter. The only real difference between the two is how they sound, period... It comes down to personal preference. Both are great choices.

My Magnaflow is really nice but I think I am going to switch it out for Borla. Borla had a deeper tone and sounds meaner. When I got my SVT it already had a Magnaflow catback. Like I said tho, it just comes down to what kind of exhaust tone your looking for, performance wise they are pretty much the same...

The Borla was hands down the best sounding exhaust I've ever heard on a SVT. You really can't go wrong with either like Gav-O said.
I like the Borla also.^^^^^^^

I've got 10 years and 129,000 miles on my Borla system so I guess you could say I like it also. [twothumbs]

I dropped my OEM exhaust and replaced it with an OBX cat(flex)back in just over an hour with hand tools. I had my Borla welded up the right way...
