    borla sound good????

    I was wondering if anyone has the borla XR1 muffler on there car. I was thinking of swapping my flowmaster. I'm not swapping the muffler because I'm un-happy with the flowmaster, I'm just bored and want something new. My flowmaster is very loud and aggresive with no rasp and I don't want to downgrade on the sound. As long as it sounds mean I'm happy. Any info would help out

    I have had Flowmaster, Loudmouth, Borla and currently have GMMG. Borla was my favorite tone of those mentioned.

    when I had my borla I noticed it was higher pitched than all of my friend's ls1's. Up top it's incredibly loud and kinda high pitched/gives you a trumpeting sound, but when cruising you can't hear a thing.

    It was the most aggressive sounding catback of all the ones I have had. Its loud above 3000 RPMs. I really wished I still had that sound.
