Replacing your factory exhaust system with an aftermarket performance system is a significant investment in money and time. Of course, you can always try saving money and going with a cheaper system, but you may only get an irritating exhaust tone without any real gains in power. The only silver lining with such a system is that it probably won’t last, so at least you won’t have to put up with it for long. Instead of going that route, just install a premium Borla Cat-Back exhaust system. You’ll get the power and sound you want, with quality materials and construction that will make it the last exhaust system you’ll ever need to buy for your car.
Borla custom designs each exhaust system for the specific application, to make the most horsepower and torque. Plus, Borla exhaust provides the best sound quality. The patented straight through muffler design reduces restriction and increases exhaust gas velocity, making sure each cylinder is completely evacuated to make room for the incoming charge. This design absorbs the sound waves without disturbing the power waves, in contrast to the chambered mufflers used by most aftermarket companies. Chambered mufflers use partitions or baffles to subdue sound waves, which also creates backpressure and reduces power.
The shape and diameter of the exhaust tubing is optimized for volume and exhaust gas velocity. Borla mandrel bends the stainless steel tubing for smooth bends and to make sure the pipe maintains its size and shape throughout the entire length. Tubes that aren’t mandrel bent can lose a significant percentage of their diameter in sharp bends. This system features an “X” pipe, where the pipes behind the catalytic converter include a crossover junction. This junction reduces excessive backpressure created by close firing cylinders on one bank, allowing it to escape to the other side of the system, thereby improving low and mid-range torque.
But improved performance is only part of what you want in an aftermarket exhaust system, because all the horsepower in the world won’t matter if it doesn’t sound right. There’s no need to worry with a Borla System. They have many years of automotive acoustical experience and the company is staffed with automotive enthusiasts just like you that listen and drive cars to make sure your system has the right sound to go with the power.
However, the best power and sound is meaningless if the exhaust system rots away in a few years. Borla uses the finest materials and construction techniques to make sure this won’t happen. They use austenitic stainless steel for their systems, which contains high levels of nickel and chromium, to resist corrosion. This material is harder than the lower grade stainless steel used by the OEM manufacturers, yet is very ductile. Nevertheless, the increased hardness requires special equipment to form and bend. The muffler contains stainless steel perforated tubes wrapped with several layers of stainless steel sound absorbing material and a layer of ceramic sound absorbing, high temperature material, all contained in a fully welded stainless steel shell.
The Borla Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust System comes complete with everything required for installation, including detailed instructions. Borla is so confident in the quality of this system that it’s guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship for one million miles.312.99 1,731.99

Looks good and quality is excellent. Installation is a breeze. I wouldn't classify as an aggressive sound as stated on description. I would go with the super aggressive due to this one being softer than expected. Otherwise, very satisfied with everything else.Was this review helpful for you?

Excellent exhaust, the roar from this is very pleasing. It is well worth the price and shipping was very quick. It is a simple install but my exhaust bolts were seized so I had to get it professionally installed. Would recommend to anyone wanting a high quality, great sounding exhaust.Was this review helpful for you?

Excellent workmanship on this product. There was some fitment problems, which required a weld and slight bending of the muffler mount.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

Good sound, improved driving experience. The only thing is the metal parts on the side of the muffler that go into the rubber holders. The right one is too short, so sometimes it slips out of place, but it doesn't make it unusable. People love it.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

Installing it wasn't too bad, the instructions could use better pictures, but the problem was the clamps. It took forever to get the clamps in just the right spot - even with the right torque on the bolt - to not leak exhaust at the clamp. One of them still leaks a little, so I'm going to fix it with some muffler cement. Other than that issue, the exhaust sounds orgasmic to my ears, I love it.5 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

Great addition to the car that has a new engine as of three weeks ago. After the break in period, people were looking twice because they couldn't believe it was a Grand Prix. Has the perfect level of aggressive sound.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

I'm satisfied with this purchase. The exhaust came very well packaged with no damage. Everything fit my 2009 Subaru Impreza as it should, and it look 100% better than the stock exhaust. The sound is not overwhelming or obnoxious, so I'm not waking the neighbors, but it has a sporty edge to it now. Don't try to install on your own, you'll just end up exhausted and wishing you had five arms. Instead, take it to a shop. Or, do what I did and save some money, but have a source for a car lift and two helpers. If you can find that, it's done in 30 minutes, and you'll wonder why everybody doesn't do this! One negative note: And, it's really not that negative... but to get the flanges at the front of the forward pipe connected to the existing exhaust, we had to hunt down two spring to fit the bolt connections, because the stock ones were too large and wouldn't compress enough to get the nut started on the bolt thread. Again, we got really lucky there, but that one little thing could have set us back hours just to go buy random springs.7 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?
