Borla Cat Back Exhaust, Seems Quiet At Idle

Just installed a Borla Catback Exhaust system, seems to be real quiet at idle but gets nasty with a little stomp of the gas?

Most exhaust systems without headers are rather quite at idle... even with my long tubes it is rather quiet. This is generally a good thing, because most absurdly loud idle exhausts are mind NUMBING to drive around town with... my s type with headers is loud as hell at crank up and WOT. If it was any louder of a system, my neighbors would absolutely despise me. I have to crank it up in the garage with the door closed as it is...

Cam swaps seems to be the one thing that makes idling sound sweet...

Well done!

The idle sounds great... throaty V-8, like music to my ears!

And, if you wanna annoy the neighbors, just stomp the gas!!
