    I have a Borla and no problems and never heard of that. It's BS. They must have something wrong with their car.

    wow.........ummmmm......... definately not. I have borla and it is a great high quality exhaust. It will increase horsepower not decrease. Most catbacks perform similarly - they flow better and increase performance.

    no its possible for a loud exhaust system to confuse the knock modual, atleast w/ LT1's which is why people do the LT4 KM mod

    Maybe with headers, but just a Borla really isn't that loud.

    ask him if he's changed his muffler fluid lately...

    that statement is complete BS. as for LT1's, the knock was a sensor related issue and had nothing to do with the exhaust nor did/does the exhaust play a role...

    When I had my 95 LT1 I ran with no cat custom 3" exhaust and a 3.5" Vortex Cherry bomb muffler. It was cheap and much louder than a Borla could be without going to headers.

    It's a cheap muffler making noise similar to glass packs, but with a bit deeper tone.
