It'll be louder with the Borla if that's what you want to know.

Forgive me if I'm mistaken, but I could've sworn the ARH was a 2.5 as well. I doubt either will give you that much or any drone.

In terms of decibels, to me I think they are equally loud but the Borla S has more bass then the ARH axleback.

If the Borla S-type is louder than the ARH, then wow the ARH must be close to GMPP exhaust. The S-type without headers is definitely louder than stock, but I wouldn't call it "loud". The ATAK is what I would consider loud.

Put a set of LT headers on and it gets loud when you get on it, but a nice rumble when cruising.

Sad to say, Borla S-type does have drone at about 75 MPH, and with headers it starts at 70 MPH. That's my experience with Kooks stepped LTs/cats and Borla.

I have the full ARH exhaust. Waiting to get home to put it on. It's pretty loud with LT's and a cam I'm sure.

Can anyone verify the tubing size of the ARH system? I could've sworn it was 2.5" as well.

3" until the axle, then it goes to 2.5" which is why its drone free but still flows great.

I have ARH long tube with cats and the borla s type cat back. It wasn't bad at all when that was all I had, but once I installed my cam...the drone is horrible. Will be taking it to SOLO soon to have them install their j-pipes on my borla system...
