Thanks, its also just a preference of sound, to me Borla has a more deep tone.
Personally I dont care for magnaflow because they have that buzzing sound at least the ones I have heard in person as well as watched on video. I was stuck too but this and the quality is what helped me make my mind to be honest....

Lol.... and no I surely couldnt wait the mufflers shipped way faster than I expected lol .....got off early from work today and had to make it a done deal !

The custom bent piping was included in the install price aswell.....
Also as far as I know the stock chrome exhaust rear piece can be removed. From what I have read, its better to have the same size piping all the way to the end of the tip as far as for airflow.....

It was easier to cut right at the Y after looking at it on the lift from underneath there really is not a reason to change the Y itself it was the crazy stock bends right after that Y pipe that lead to the mufflers that I wanted to get as straight as possible which I think was accomplished. There is definitely much better airflow now.

Renny,
It sounds awesome, thanks for posting up such nice video! This is exactly the sound I'm looking for too.

When you pulled up next to the camera, I hear that you have the same whistle that I do. I've done some research and I think it's the fuel pump or something but drives me crazy either way. I'm glad it's probably driving someone else crazy too (misery loves company).

IIRC the chrome piece is attached directly to the rear bumper, and I'm not sure if they're removable or not. I was thinking of painting mine with a chrome black at one time, but never looked into it.

And I've never heard any tips that actually help with sound. I've seen/heard of some ricer "tips" that IMO made it worse, but that's it.

nice video. i see the chrome piece comes off but i guess i'd have to cut out the piece under the chrome piece if i wanted to put a exhaust tip back there...
