Turn up your speakers barely and it'll cover up the noise of the exhaust.

From the exhaust? Nothing noticable to me. The borla exhaust isn't a superloud exhaust like a flowmaster 40.

The Borla exhaust is a great piece of gear.


And, if you don't like the sound, get some MTs and all the creaks and squeaks go away.

Thread Hijacking in progress.

Am I the only one that was taught by my automotive elders that.... if you have anything other then a V8.. you keep it quiet.... to hide the fact that you don;t have a v8
