Borla Exhaust

Just got my borla exhaust on today and boy does it sound good. Nice deep tone without the raspiness. I will try and get some sound footage of it this weekend!

Sweet! What kind of car do you have and what parts from Borla? Do they make kits for Saabs?

It is a 2000 9-3 SE 5 spd. The only other mod at the time is an open intake. No they do not make a kit. I bought their 2.5" turbo muffler and a perdy oval tip. I just had the local muffler shop do the 2.5" plumbing from the cat back. I know it isn't the most efficient way but I don't plan to go over stage 3 or 4 and in my mind 2.5" is enough for that.

I have about 305.00 in it. The muffler was 125.00, the tip was 60.00 or so and the exhaust shop charged me 120.00 to run 2.5" and hook it all up.

No the muffler and tip are but the rest of the pipe is alumanized. As soon as I find a camera I will post up some vid. In a way I wish it was a little louder. After it runs for a while it might get louder and when I add the down pipe and race cats I am sure that will open her up a little more.

na can't find anyone with a camera to get some sound for you. Don't video tape much so don't see the point in buying one just for this! lol But I will keep working on it.

lies!!! when i did my emissions my car didnt even read the cat and in my county I can have two systems fail on my obd2 befor I fail the test. also no visual check so if i want i could put a test pipe in and still pass emissions im thinking. does anyone know if the rear o2 sensor will mess up the air fuel ratio if theres not cat?


also op: where abouts do you live maybe one of us could film you?

I live in Sanford NC, a pretty good ways from you. I know where there might be some still picture cameras I can use to take some footage but from what I have heard they don't capture the sound really well.

Thats what I heard before.. 2.5" exhaust is good until 300hp, then 3" would flow better. Is that right?

i have a 3 inch turboback on the 9000 aero right now. and it will pull on stock aero's... so it depends on who you talk to, and what the definition of 'good' is.

Wait, I know 2.5" is "good" but I said it is fine to 300hp, its still good, but after that 3" would flow better.
