    Borla vs. Corsa

    Hi everybody, I have a 2002 WS6 and am finally looking add some performance mods and need some input. I am torn between the Corsa or the Borla exhaust systems. What do you recommend? Also how much horse power do headers add? What is the difference between long tube headers and short tube?

    I personnaly like the Borla Exhaust with long tubes one mine.... havent heard Corsa yet. Long tubes will give you more high end than it will low end, Short tubes will give you more low end torque than hig end horses. Just depends on what our after.

    i would save money on catbacks and get the stainless magnaflow, it performs just as good as the two you want.
    long tubes headers are the way to go, an easy 30 h.p

    Thank you for responding. I don't want anything obnoxiously loud. What setting on the borla do you have? Ok, how much money does it cost to have long tube headers installed? and If I had the Borla, the Long tubes, and SLP air box, what do you think will be my total horse power?

    I'm not sure what setting i have, but its pretty loud when you romp on it, but a little more subtle when its at idle. I have no idea on cost.... the borla cat back is like 900 though from summit

    +1. well said

    borla and corsa arent that much better for the amount of money over a magnaflow catback. its just a catback, no reason to spend almost a grand on it.

    Magnaflow. I got mine brand new off eBay for $375 shipped. It definately woke the car up a bit. It has a nice idle, very minimal drone while cruising, and mean at WOT. Couple that with some LT's and it will be nasty...
