Dual-tip stingers on a C5 Corvette. That is as classic and respected a combination as anything we've ever sold here. Great choice for that vehicle. The Borla Sport/Stinger mufflers was the undeniable, number 1 go-to Corvette exhaust system for more than a full decade.
The 'Vette looks gorgeous. Thanks for the photo!

Thanks,

ok- I am getting the borla s type axle back system, I just want a sound change. I have the ss auto tranny - but i like the look of my stock tips- so will it hurt performance or sound to use my stock tips instead of borlas tips? thanks!

The Borla Exhaust have been HUGE sellers...Since they are so popular and I get the same questions, I wanted to share some thoughts before you make a decision on which one to go with...

There are several flavors for the Camaro now.....
In the ATAK Series you have the
Camaro ATAK CatBack Exhaust System

Camaro Axleback ATAK Exhaust
Camaro ATAK Catback Exhaust for Camaros with Ground Effects Package
Camaro ATAK Axleback Exhaust for Camaros with Ground Effects Package

Then you have the Borla Camaro Catback Touring System (which does not sound much different than stock. For the person who wants the increased performance with no additional change in exhaust note)

and then in the Borla Sport lineup (which is my favorite)...
Camaro Borla Sport Catback
Camaro Borla Sport Axleback Exhaust

and the only 3" Borla system (OEM system and the other above systems are 2.5")
Borla 3" Camaro Sport Catback Exhaust If you get the 3" system, you will also want to get a new Camaro Billet Tunnel Brace as the 3" system will most likely touch your OEM tunnel Plate and rattle, which will drive you nuts!!!

Some thoughts before purchasing any of them.....

All of the Axle back systems require cutting the OEM system (which i am not a fan of, just in case you ever want to go back to stock). There is also one more "dirty"secret about the Axelbacks which needs to be known....When you install the Axleback it leaves in place the OEM Pre Muffler that is up towards the middle of the car. Not a big deal, but it DOES change the exhaust note slightly as compared to the Catback systems and does not make the L99 system a true dual exhaust as the Catback does.

Both Axle Back and Catback systems are great systems and make a huge improvement in sound, but if you can afford to spring for the extra cash, do it right and get the Catback.

From a sound perspective, you have the touring which sound not much different than stock. Then the Sport (my favorite) which bumps it up a notch from the sound perspective, but not too much. At the ATAK which is the most aggressive sounding of them all.

All of Borla's systems are awesome, but thought prospective shoppers would want to know the down and dirty on each one...

See ya,

Jim

Hey Jim,
Does the 3" cat back S-Type system require 3" cats? Or does it connect up to the stock cats? Is some type of 2 1/2 to 3" adapter needed or provided? Thanks.

3" Piping, or a stepped 2 1/2" - 3" piping piece, are needed to install a 3" exhaust system. The stepped pipe can be fabricated by much any talented local muffler shop to fit the system up perfectly. However, 3" systems are typically reserved for use with an aftermarket header, which already utilizes 3" piping.

Thanks,
Matt

That's what I thought. Which is why I was considering them as opposed to the 2 1/2" S-Type because I might eventually get long tube headers and a tune. Thanks Matt!

If your going to get headers too the borla exhaust is very loud. My friends camaro has both and it's way to loud. The attk by itself sounds amazing but add headers and your in for a surprise lol.

Quick question Jim should I forget about ordering the NPP exhaust for the 1LE Camaro if I'm planning on getting the Borla ATAK CatBack system? I don't see any dual tips for this system so I'm thinking that I should just get the normal exhaust that has the single exhaust tips. Is this correct?

If you're going to change out the exhaust anyway, it'd probably be smart not to pay for the NPP exhaust to begin with. As for the Borlas, you're right that they all have one tip per side.

Thanks,
Dave

catback or axle back

Iíve been on the fence for a borla cat-back or axle back. I have a 2013 SS L99 with AFM. I donít plan on headers.
I will be ordering the rangev8 soon to turn off AFM. My question is; are the cat-backs much louder than axle backs? I donít want anything too loud to the point where I canít carry a decent conversation in the cabin. Are the atak models really loud compared to the s-type, in terms of cabin noise and outside noise? Any input southercarparts and or members?

That's exactly the set-up I have on my 2013 2SS/RS L99 - Borlas S-Type catbacks with Range. They are definitely louder than axle backs; but not too loud; deep, throaty sound with little drone IMO. Not as loud or raspy as the ATAK.

Thanks for the input. Is exhaust really annoying without range?

ATAK

Get the Atak catback. You won't be dissapointed. It's not over the top. Everyone who has heard mine loves it. I have ATAK catback systems on my Corvette, my gmc sierra, and my SS. Wouldn't go with any other system. The catback system is definately louder than just the axle back.

Only a little not very noticeable at all. I do have a diablo tune on it though so no afm. I started with the axle back on the camaro and decide to contact borla and get the xpipe for it and it was a huge difference. I also added the npp diffuser and quad tips. Very happy with how it came out. Lt headers and hi-flow cats are next on the list at some point.

That's nice. I'm sure it sounds great already. I want to keep my power train warranty. I will be using the rangev8 to delete afm. I do like the look on the quad tips. For a catback install, do u know how much I would expect to pay a shop? I don't want to overpay. My guess would be $60-75. Range.

So the xpipe makes a better sound than just axle backs on the l99?
I was thinking of getting a full catback. But wanted to keep stock resonator in case I Remove rangev8 device and afm kicks in. I'm thinking the resonator will help dampen the sound of afm. Not that I plan to remove range device, unless I drive highway for a few hrs. If doing a catback with borla stype and afm does kick in, will it be really annoying in terms of sound? I've read on here that is pretty annoying and dreadful. I don't wanna tune out afm, since I want to retain my power train warranty. So I believe axle backs is my best choice.
Perhaps I might consider catback later on. Or should I just do full cat now?

Spoke to my muffler guy today and he recommended magnaflow catback, since the warranty is top notch in terms of Customer service, and great sound on catback. Anyone have experience with magnaflow?
