Borla Camaro SS Exhaust Comparison

Here's a video we put together to show the differences between the 3 exhaust options Borla offers for the SS. They all perform equally but sound much different from one another. Hope you enjoy it.

Sounds good. I was considering the S type for my SS, but now I like the ATAK system. When will it be for sale?

if thats with stock manifolds and cats...

the atak system should ship with a notice, -"if you put headers and eliminate cats on your car, be prepared to lose all audition abilities." in super small letters at the bottom, "and everyone elses too"

That ATAK system sounds phenomenal! I guess drone is not a concern with that set up? That thing sounds like a racecar!

ATAK sounds real nice, but I think I'll stick to the S type since it's my daily driver.

I'm putting some LT catted 1 7/8" headers on my car. I'm thinking this Borla touring exhaust would be what I'd like to have on my car. I want some growl, but I want to be able to listen to music and carry on a conversation when driving at highway speeds. How is the drone in an A6 with the touring exhaust at highway speeds? That's a big concern for me.

What a great video...undoubtedly the best exhaust demo video I've seen!

That ATAK system sounds wicked...I'd love to hear it in person and with long tubes...

Thanks! It will be released in the next few days. Perhaps even today.

We have a 3" system that will also be released this week but the increased diameter of the pipes created an entirely different sound and required different mufflers. This system is only recommended for those who are pushing significantly more air than stock.

Based on your needs and the fact that you will be adding long tubes, I agree that the touring system is the right fit. It's much different from stock under acceleration, with a nice growl but closer to stock at cruise.

As far as AFM goes, it's all so subjective. Some Camaro owners don't want to hear it at all, some don't mind hearing it as long as it's not obnoxious and some disable it all together. Which category do you fall under?

Is there less drone with the ATAK system in the L99 than there is with the s-type?

The interior resonance will be a little less with the Atak. It is tough to get away from slow highway speed cruising resonance with the L99.

Will the Atak muffler be available for an axle back application or only for Cat back ?

well thats upsetting as i have the s-type, now i want the atak it sounds great you should swap my s-type out for the atak !!! why was there no news of this being developed i would have waited for the atak now i feel i have waisted more money, dont get me wrong the s-type is good but the atak should take the place of the s-type because there is not much difference between the touring and s-type.

I'm in the "I don't mind if it's not obnoxious" group. But, I also am not opposed to a tune and eliminating it altogether if that helps the car's performance. My understanding is that AFM really doesn't help much with fuel economy anyway.
