If you get a set of long tubes like the ones below made by Stainless Works, then you can get a catback system on top of that and have it match up, yes. And just FYI, just because you install a part, doesn't mean it voids the warranty right away, so it's not an instant thing, you'll still be able to go into the dealer and get any maintenance done that's still covered under warranty.

Catback without a tune is fine, I would run it on my personal car without worrying about it.

Well, ordered the Borla, now I just have to find a shop in my area that can install these when they show up. States 2 weeks before shipping, since new product...the wait begins...

Another question if I may about these pipes.
Heard some talk about 'drone' issues, will I have this issue also?

There could be a little but it shouldn't be anything bad.

Is there anything else needed to do this install..like seals or whatever?
Or is it ready to install right out of the box?

I ran it through the home stereo system (tube pre-amp-monoblock tube amps) which requires NO subwoofer. The vintage Altec Lansing Voice of the Theater speakers made it sound like Green Valley Raceway (RIP) was open again.

I'm busy getting broken glass picked up as 3 pictures fell off the wall.

I don't understand why a lot of people say that the Borla Atak cutback is too loud or too much for them , I just installed the cutback last week and it sounds just a little bit deeper than stock at idle and it's not that noticeable or annoying until you step on the gas and hit 3000 rpm.I'm starting to wonder if there is something wrong with my Atak lol.

Some folks like me like a little stealth in our exhaust. I ordered drone-free GHL cat backs. LG Motorsports is doing free tunes with header installation.

I understand that, I might be wrong but I think the borla atak has so little if none drone. It all depends on personal preference though so for me the borla atak is perfect

Great thread. I have been agonizing over this because I have ATAK with catless mids on my Challenger, but I feel that the S-type is better suited for my Camaro. Really tough decision!

Love my ATAK. There is a small amount of drone, but nothing that annoy's me or any of my passengers.

Ordered on the 15th and still nothing. They said 2 weeks at the time, but heard nothing at this point. Understand the wait on new products, but when it takes longer than what was told, gets frustrating...

This will give you an idea on the S-Type. There's a lot of background noise but is pretty close to how it sounds in person. Just a bit louder.

I don't know why. Sorry. There should be a few on YouTube if you do a search.

Oh it's ok! I have seen a couple on youtube. I think I'm just going to get it ordered and stop agonizing over it already.

Anybody here got a 2014 and installed the Borla system from last year?
Borla's new system design for the 2014 is delayed abit and wondering if anybody has fitted the older system to the new car with any issues.

Thx

S-type on my 2013 2SS L99 is perfect, especially with the Range! LT headers after 12,000 miles or so maybe.......
