CaniacFan -
Something else you might consider is going with the LT headers and keeping your stock exhaust. The LT headers will add a nice throaty growl and have the added benefit of giving you more hp. Then if you decide you want more sound later, you can then do the exhaust.

By the way, if you have an automatic, you will want to have AFM tuned out. It can create an annoying drone with after market headers and exhaust.

None of the videos do the sound justice compared to when you hear/drive the car in person.

That actually sounds really good. I had heard some long tube headers with ATAK videos and it sounded horrible, too loud and raspy. But PQs didn't sound that way. Maybe Borla long tubes are tuned to work better with the Borla exhaust.

Great video and the car sound freakin' awesome...

Thanks for that weekend pick-me-up. Time to drool some more.

Now you need set your camera down as you guys do an "easy" side-by-side in that industrial park. Can't go too quick otherwise they will assume you are racing (which you're not).

Cool stuff guys.

Sorry Guys, updated the exhaust Post.

Randy has the "S" Type not the ATAK...

I was confused...

Well, could be because I have no cats. Borla doesn't do cats. If you get borla fron the manifold, back, you will either have no cats, or have to have some added.

Nice! I like it

So this is the S-Type, no cats, and Bora LTH correct??

I might just go with the Borla LTH now. It doesn't sound too loud, but loud enough when you punch it.

Plus the Borla's are reasonably priced. Every other company's prices are in the 1K range. I know Summit racing has them for about $700. I will talk with Tim at T & T Performance to see what he can do for me. I am glad I watched this video, I was close to blowing the money on ARH. But they are really pricey.

Thanks for posting the vid

Yup S type cat back, LT's without cats. I don't think Borla offers Cat'd LT's

and I agree, it isn't lound until you WOT.... which is when you want it loud.

Like I've said before I LOVE! my ARH Headers. But this is a nice option.

IMHO, the fit and finish isn't quite as nice as my ARH's but in the end if you are on a budget, the borla is an established brand that knows how to build headers.

And unless you are wanting everyone to stare at your headers, I like this option better.

Plus I only wanted the best for your sister.

Yeah I was going to do the ARH when I did the supercharger. But I don't know how long it is going to be before I can do that, so I want something to hold me over till then, and borla is best for a budget.

I love the sound of ARH too, but the borla's sound good too.

Beautiful!

How hard is it to install the leather on the doors? How long did it take you? Like Dr Jkel asked, do you still have the ABL?

Wow. It looks really classy.
