    i went with magnaflow because it was cheaper. they both sound good. so it just depends on how much you want to spend on a cat-back system

    both are very nice systems. I have borla, but it is pricey. I think being able to adjust the borla is cool --- but i always just leave the plates all out lol.

    I would go Magnaflow myself.

    While those high priced catbacks are nice...they just aren't worth the price to me.

    +1 I talked to the guy who has done my exhust forever and he said Borla is not worth the price tag, over all you will get more with Magnaflow including more money in your pocket

    +1 for magnaflow. The others are just too expensive. My magnaflow is definitely good quality and has a great sound. The tips aren't anything special at all, thats my only complaint.

    i was really debating this myself a few weeks back. i wanted true duels but had to go with a catback but anyway, i went with the magnaflow. my friend and i had a nice chat about the future of my car and decided that maganaflow would give me the sound i want and would also be good with LTs. I love the sound of the magnaflow, u can hear it when i get on it but when im just cruisin its a nice low rumble, nothing to obnoxious but can be loud.

    oh yea agree with the guys, i saved about 450$ getting magnaflow over borla magnaflow is a great catback and isnt over priced.
