    borla vs. loudmouth

    i definitely love the sound of borla exhausts... i can get a system for 703 shipped through my friend, which i know is a great deal. but i can get a loud mouth for about 300. borlas sound 50x better, but is it worth that much money? (which, 700 bucks is quite a bit to me lol) plus i dont like the intercooled tips it comes with, so i'll have to find something else too.... what do you guys think about both exhausts?

    While pricey...I would go with the Borla over the Loudmouth any day.

    depends on your future plans.

    If only want a few bolt-ons save the $$ and get loudmouth. If you want LT headers then most will say no to loudmouth. very raspy

    If you have bigger plans like a cam etc. i would get borla. I see lots of people such as mr. lous swapping their setup because it is not very efficient.

    +1. I would go with Borla over LM. LM is too cheap sounding, compared to most other setups. Then again I would just go with True Duals over everything, thats what I plan on getting in the future.

    i just listened to the borla again on their website, and i think i have to go with it


    but on another note, i posted a thread earlier but aren't getting any responses... so i was hoping you guys could shed some light on this...

    today i was driving and flew over a some-what blind hill to find out there was a ...bump on the other side. i flew over it (at anywhere between 80-100) and bottomed out a bit(a lot), but everything was fine (thank GOD). but when i got home i found something under my feet... it was a small twisted metal piece in the shape of a spring.. one of my friends thought it could be from the seat... driving home was fine and the seat worked fine except it was a bit rough tilting it back and forth. you have any idea what it is?

    it sucks doing things twice and thats what will happen. 1000 for SLP first then the 700 for the borla. save yourself the hassle and do it right the first time man.

    SLP is only like $400.

    But yea Jane_says borla is a great choice. I have the adjustable system and love it.

    As far as the spring - do you have manual or power seats?

    i agree with the boys
    borla without a doubt. the lm sounds good if ure gonna keep the car stock. if ure looking for LTs its gonna sound ssooo raspy, and ya dont want that
    im thinking borla or corsa on my car. good luck with ur mods.

    I had a loudmouth when the car was ordered from SLP. I changed it to the Borla and like the Borla ALOT better. Def worth the extra cash to me.

    Also. FYI. The borla without plates in it is loud all the time. (thats what I like.) the corsa is quite, but gets loud when you get on it. Its a matter of preference though.

    what would u put on an A4 then? id like a nice sound all the time... im leaning towards borla. i was going to go with true duels but its to much drama with no cats, dumping at the axle and so on..

    Yea. Id def go with the Borla on an A4. It will still sound really good. No need to go with true duels. Ill send you a link to my myspace. if you look in my videos it'll have three videos with my borla. keep in mind that Ive done LTs , High flow cats and some other stuff. but it gives you a good idea while im romping on it. actually, i cant get on my myspace because im on a Government comp. just look me up on myspace. my name is christopher sills, and im in quantico va. (let me know if that works)

    I would say the exact opposite, I liked the LM better. Of course I *hated* the intercooled tips on the Borla. Impossible to keep them clean. Sound wise, the Borla got raspy above 5K (2000 SS A4 with bolt ons).

    Are you talking about the inside part of the tips?

    Yes. There are plenty of little places for carbon to build up. Just aggravating trying to clean them.
