Default Borla exhaust

Getting a Borla exhaust and wondering if anybody is running one? How do you like it?

Also not sure what CAI to go with! Don't want to break the bank also

Any feed back would be good

Sound great and I would love to do that style setup, but a little loud for my dd especially since I do a lot of highway driving and use a Bluetooth. That is aboutas loud or louder than my cammed ls.1 trans am

The Borla is loud, but I think my Gibson Super Truck is louder and has a more racing sound to it for sure. Not a bad sounding truck though... I will try to post a few videos on my YT channel soon. Just installed it yesterday. I LOVE the way the Gibson sounds.. Just my opinion.

Got my Gibson for only $292.80 with a coupon code at Auto Parts Warehouse. I posted a thread somewhere with all the links if you are interested. It saved me $32.53 + free shipping off total price and I couldn't find it anywhere else for cheaper thank what I paid!

Borla is all quality. You can't go wrong. I still have Borla complete catback on my '05 GT Mustang and it looks and sounds the day it did when I installed it almost two years ago.

There are only a handfull of names that come to my mind when adding [performance/quality] aftermarket modifications to vehicles. Borla is most certainly one and up there with the very finest.

The only reason I didn't go with Borla this time around is all my prior research led me back to Maganflow for these 4th Gen Ram 1500's. Otherwise, based on previous experiences and purchases, it would have been either Borla or Corsa.

I'm happy with my ultimate decision.
