Cat Back..Magnaflow or Borla..???

Narrowed down my exhaust to Magnaflow or Borla.
I have heard both systems in person, both are what I'm going for.
Does anyone have any suggestions, or concerns I should watch out for with these two systems......
Keep in mind I can save about 3 hundred bucks by gong with Magnaflow.

They are both good systems, but I prefer Borla systems. Their quality and design is outstanding.

both brands make several different systems... which one are you looking for? aggressive sound, or just something better sounding than stock?

i have magnaflow axleback right now, and i am a little disappointed in the quality.

i wish i woulda bought Corsa instead which is the cadillac of exhaust systems! but the new Borla ATAK is very similar to the Corsa.

I have Magnaflow on one of my Camaros and Borla on one of them. I love them both, they are quality products. I would go with the cheaper one so you have more money to do other mods. I ordered from Jordan at JDP motorsports he has really good pricing.

on my 72 camaro i had 40 series flowmasters, i loved to loud deep sound, im looking for something like that for the new camaro, i saw a clip of some on this site and it was pretty much what i was looking for, might be another option, to buy the pieces seperate, mufflers/xpipe/headers, it looks like it can be done fairly cheap.

Anyone have any experience with the 40 series flowmasters on the 2010?

i'm a perfectionist, although it mounted up fine, the tips did not line up, and took me an hour and a half to get them level.

also, when i later installed my ARH headers, cats and x-pipe, i had trouble getting both aftermarket systems to line up.

i also had trouble with the clamps leaking. if the pipes are not 100% inserted together, the relief cut on the outer connecting pipe will leak no matter what.

they do make clamps that prevent this, but they are $30 per clamp.

i plan on getting the new ARH exhaust that lines perfectly up with their x-pipe i already have. either that, or trade my cats in for the ARH "short kit" cats and get Corsa cat-back, the cadillac of exhaust systems (not because it is quiet, but because it's the highest quality next to OE fit)
