    Exhaust Preferences?

    I'm thinkin about a new exhaust. Magnaflow or Borla? Magnaflow is hella cheaper and I hear good things, has anyone had any experience with a Borla system? Which do you prefer?

    I love the popping sound because it kinda sounds like a GT car as its decelerating.

    Can't go wrong either way, magnaflow is ok, but if u can afford the borla, I would go with them. You would be so much happier to hear the borla over the magnaflow but performance wise, it wouldnt make a huge difference.

    I have a flowmaster 40 and it pops a lot. Its the only muffler ive heard in person on an LS1 that wasnt stock. It sounds okay. The popping is a little annoying though. I would love to have heard a few others before I chose but I havent even found anyone else up here with an LS1.

    I know it isn't one of your choices but I have the Corsa and really like it. The price is up there with the Borla though.

    i love my magnaflow. after i get some more $ ii'm gonna get true dual magnaflow. it is nice and quiet for cruising but it opens up nicely. i also have a cutout for each header so i can be loud if i want

    if you are willing to spend the money on borla, get gmmg, a lot of people think it is the BEST way to go

    I can't justify $800+ on a catback.
    Might as well get custom duals for that price.

    you can get em used all day on here and Tech for 400 shipped. thast what i paid and Borla is stainless and has a million mile warrenty

    personally for a CB i would go with the borla just look in the for sale section

    here is a sound clip of a borla with stock internals on the left and just the CB, mine on the right has a cam and full exhaust(headers,Y pipe)
