Congrats on the mods Randy! I hope you'll like your Borla cat-back as much as I do. I'm thinking of replacing my DT shorties for ARH long tubes since I don't have to worry about passing the smog test for another 5 years. Cross that bridge when the time comes.

Actually, not S type OR atak. Cost I guess. I'm going with Tims recomendations. I don't know enough about it. On an L99 the ATAK stuff might just be too loud.

In case any of you don't know him, the Tim I'm refering to is Tim at T and T performance. Knows his shi& and eventually, he'll be doing my Super Charger. Of course, I'll have to go to him to get it done, but I'm cool with the trip. I've heard nothing but good stuff about him and talking to him I get a good feeling.

Maybe I'll drag Chris' ass up there with me. lol

Done.

I had forgotten about ATAK.... you may want to look in to that.... It's a pretty sweet system.

PM Chris@borla. He will know.

I talked with Tim the other day, seemed like a real nice person, gave me a greta price on a supercharger installed, I mean a really great price about 1500.00 cheaper than anyone else.

I did talk to him about the Atak, but one person loud is another person quiet, there in lies the problem with that type of thing, you never really know until it is on the car.

BTW, glad your wheels got fixed

Tim is great.. If I hadn't gone with Tom, I'd have been at T and T. No doubt about it.

Thanks.

And, ya, what may be quiet to you may be loud to me. Never know, but Tim did say that the L99 tends to be a lot louder.

I put a Borla catback Touring exhaust on mine with Kooks LT headers. It's as loud as I'd ever want it to be. The headers will add a lot of sound by themselves.

I have the GMPP street version on now with LT Headers and it really is quiet, once you get about 3500 rpms it opens the sound up. From the video's on Borla's website none of them really sound loud but then again it's a video.

Are ya'll talkking about cat back or axle back systems

Yup. And the car Borla was using for the Atak examples was an LS3. I'm thinking that based on how I explained to Tim that I wanted it, he is thinking the atak may be too loud.

Cat back. For me. Plus, again, you have an LS3 like the car in their vids. Something about VVT or something that tends to make the L99 louder, espec in the cabin.

Yeah the Atak by itself is freakishly loud. Add LTH and it sounds like you have a freaking monster lol.

The car in the Borla video did not have headers. Headers add a lot of sound.

Damn. lmao

True, I didn't notice that.

I think Tim has taken this into consideration. I told him I want my car to turn heads when I start it and get on it, but not piss people off. lol

Are you going to do the S/C at the same time as the headers and exhaust, are you changing the cam also?
