I want to order something this weekend.
Thanks again for all your great write ups and input in advnace
Yes, I've owned Borla on more than one previous ride and they are top-notch in every way, period!
A lot of vendors will tell you that Corsa and Gibson exhausts are the leader of the pack, but I'll tell you this: from an owner who's owned all three in the past, I'll put Borla up against any brand.... they're that good!
If you put a gun to my head and forced me to pick a fault with Borla, the ONLY thing I'd pick is Borla can be a little mellow-sounding under idle. But under WOT, they're a different story. Throw on some mild performance upgrades [cam, headers, custome tune, larger TB, etc] and nothing else on the market touches it. IMHO, it's the best sounding exhaust for mildly modified street registered cars.
I've seen one or two 4th Gen owners "around" on these boards and others of the like, who have the Borla catback installed and it does sound reall sweet. You simply can't go wrong with Borla.
So after all that, why did I not choose Borla for my 12' Ram?
Like I said in my thread's opening post, I went with the Magnaflow 16869
this time around because ALL my research for our trucks [at the time] from reading, listening, asking and whatnot led me to my selection ..... and those 5' tips are priceless! In other words, for ME - this time around, and for the first time ever - Maganflow was the right choice.
I have absolutely no regrets..... and I'm sure you won't if you go the similar route.
Hope this helped some.
I enjoy the write-ups and appreciate the kind words.
