Default Borla XR-1 Sportsman Muffler

Been doing alot of research between this forum and Google search and Youtube videos. And I came to the conclusion that the Mufflex system isn't what I am looking for as far as sound comes. So I have decided to try and replace my factory muffler with one from Borla, more specifically the Borla XR-1 Sportsman. I got the 15" Round XR-1 Muffler part #40085.

I contacted Borla to see what the difference was between their XR-1 Sportsman and their XR-1 Multicore was. They essentially told me the XR-1 Sportsman is going to be louder because it only has one core that is straight through.

So my plan is to replace my factory muffler with the Borla and weld a 3" inlet to 2.25" Dual Outlet Y-Pipe to the Borla so I can retain the factory duals.

I just ordered everything today, so I won't have it for a few days. Anyone foresee any issues I might run into with this setup? I can post pics and a video for anyone interested in the setup.

Would love to see the install and hear it, Borla is top notch, you get what you pay for. Nice choice.

I've owned more than one borla CB in the past with nothing but extreme praise.

I've never heard/seen/read anything negative about a Borla exhaust.

You'll be wrapped.

Congrats.

Awesome. My truck is at the Exhaust Shop getting the muffler installed. I wanted it TIG Welded together (all the piping, y-pipe, and muffler is T-304 Stainless) and the Muffler assembly to be clamped back on like the factory muffler. I will take pictures when I get it home in a few hours. I will try to get a video with the truck parked in the grass, maybe the weather will be nice today.

I searched on Youtube to find videos of what my Borla Sportsman Muffler would sound like and I didn't find too many. I did find a Ram with dual Borla setup and headers, that one sounded very good. I think that one had the Pro-XS Mufflers though.

Here are some pictures and a somewhat decent video.







It has a very deep roar to it with a nice sound inside the truck. It doesn't drone. I like it. Now time to save up for the headers.

Thank You! I just wanted to try something a little different and it may help someone else out too. The Mufflex kit looks like a great system, but I didn't care for the sound. To me it didn't have that deep roar I was looking for.
