Sweet video. Nice job guys.. Now I'm on the fence about what to do with mine. Not sure I want headers (she's my DD), just want a little more growl.

BTW: You mentioned competition, it this Bonnie's event?? Please keep us posted.

Might need to speak with you boys about a setup for my car. Christmas is coming, ya know?

Great job, nice graphics on the video too.. She sounds like a real "screamer".

The video is GREAT! Thanks for posting those for us. The car sounds amazing.

I have the same addiction. Once you start the performance mods, you just want MOAR!

The car is looking and sounding fab!

That's exactly what I wanted - more growl but not horrendously loud. That's why I went with Kooks LT headers and the Borla Touring exhaust. Not as loud as the Atak or S-type. It still growls, but I can still hear my music when cruising on the highway.

If you don't want headers, I'd highly recommend the Borla or Flowmaster, catback system.

The Borla ATAK is pretty loud but won't be as loud as Randy's with Borla Long tube as they don't have cats on them.

I'd say the borla of you want a more aggressive sound. and The Flow master if you'd like a more throaty smoother sound.

The vids are a little deceiving..

It really isn't too lound in the cabin... but when he goes WOT, you know it.

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.
