Borla Sport Catback Exhaust Video
 
Received the Borla sport catback system on Saturday and the fiance and I installed it Saturday night. So very happy with the sound! :happyanim:

The installation actually wasnt too bad. Thought someone on the here may want to see a video clip of the catback, since (as far as I know) one does not yet exist.

Enjoy...

This is the complete catback system from Borla. Part number 140280.

What is the drone like at lower RPMs? The few Borla equipped cars I have been in have had noticeable drone.

LyssaRaen 07-21-2009 12:17 PM

There is a slight drone at about 2K. Not really that bad though. I've been in cars that had much more noticable interior resonance. You can still hear your music and carry on a conversation.

The problem is on long cruises at 75- 80mph, you'll be sitting at 2k rpms listening to that drone. Even if its not that bad, it can become annoying when you just want some piece and quiet on a long highway run.
That's why I switched to a Corsa catback on my 06 GTO.

And if you add headers and high flow cats, the drone will become more noticeable.

But I would like to add, I love the sound of Borla. It has a very unique sound and Borla makes a quality exhaust.

Awesome sound!

Personally, I prefer the sound of the Borla system over the Corsa...

As I said, the drone really isnt that bad compared to other exhaust systems I've heard. Its nothing like the Borla systems on the 4th gens. Those could be obnoxious at times.

Is there really a system out there that has a decent sound and quality and has little to no interior resonance? It's all relative. But, to each his own...

Sorry if I came off negative. Borla is a great exhaust. Back when I used Borla on my previous cars (LS1 Fbody's) I really loved the sound. I think I'm just getting old and get annoyed really easily by exhaust noise when I'm crusing on the highway.
Back in the day I use to use Flowmaster exhausts on my cars and talk about drone. It was ridiculous (and it didn't even bother me).

Enjoy your new exhaust. I'm sure it also looks great.

So this is the aggressive "s-type" kit correct? If so it is awesome and the video I have been waiting for. It sounds very good! It is also good you did a driving shot to hear the system under load. Are you looking to add any headers or just going to leave it as is?

wavrun2000 07-21-2009 01:46 PM

Also what size are the tips? And do you have any pictures of the exhaust by looking straight at it from the back so I can see how well the tips fill out the holes in the bumper?
Thanks

Ranger 75 07-21-2009 02:49 PM

Sold me. Also interested in headers.

Ltdodge 07-21-2009 04:51 PM

is this the entire catback kit or just the axle back?

i would think that if it the catback then the axle back should be a little quieter and less drone

NAHURRY 07-21-2009 07:32 PM

Sounds great.:chevy:

Yeah, this is the 'aggressive' borla system (PN 140280). No plans for headers just yet. Maybe after I recuperate financially from purchasing the exhaust... :facepalm:

:laugh:

Well let me say it was well worth the money it seems. Did you have any pictures of it?

Restroom 07-21-2009 10:58 PM

Still not as nice as the Corsas to me, but it's just a video and there's also a LOT of ambient noise being recorded along with it. Sure it sounds much better in person, but for a whole catback system $1500 isn't bad. Of course, I say that comparatively, $1500 for a headerback system would be criminal to me, but that's what they cost for these cars...

salohi 07-21-2009 11:41 PM

I will go for Borla

The tips are slightly larger than oem due to the thicker rolled edge. I think they were about 4.25". The car looks much cleaner now that you don't see the bottoms of the stock cans hanging below the facia.

We tried to find a quieter spot for the video but unfortunately ended up behind my fiances work where the plant ventilation is quite noisy.

Very nice. Thanks for posting the pics

Doc 07-23-2009 11:59 PM

Wow that sounds great. I can imagine how it would sound with headers too.

ElManny 07-24-2009 12:21 AM
