Talking Borla Exhaust Installed!!!

Just got the Borla exhaust installed and I must say it's AWESOME!!!

It's not too loud, but the tone is definitely deeper than the stock exhaust! On the way home, I was listening to the sound of the exhaust instead the radio.



I will take vids tomorrow when I meet up with Sal (AutoCouture), when the weather is warmer and when it's not raining out. LOL!

Here are some pics for the meantime.











Vids here!!! Let me know what you think!

6AT.

Not really sure what drone sounds like. But I will be meeting up with another member who knows more about it tomorrow. But for me, the exhaust sounds great! It's like music to my ears. LOL!

With the windows closed, is it so deep in the low rpms (1400-2100) that it almost reverbs in the cabin? The base/boomy sound is drone.

Why does it look like the rear hangers by the tires are not attached to anything? Is the install not finished at the time of the pictures?

edit I think I see hangers in the last pictures (faintly)

It only drones if you do the 2ndary cat delete, however looks like the OP kept his 2nd cats on. I know from experience unfortunately.....

Nope, no welding, only clamps. Should I get them welded? How can I check for leaks?

Yeah, the time I took that pic, they didn't finish the installation yet. But all hangers are used.

Actually, not much droning at all. One of the clamps was loose and was leaking. I saw it this morning and tightened it. I was wondering why water would be dripping out of the pipe. LOL!.

Took vids today and will post them tonight when I get home.
