Borla Exhaust

I have been thinking of this for a long time now and I believe that I am ready to take the plunge and do a couple of things to my Camaro. Right now everything on it , is stock. I have been doing some research and have had a couple of guys mention Borla Exhaust to me. I told them that I like the deep sound and I was hoping that I could get that with the Borla Exhaust . A good example

I know that this is more exspensive then the Flowmaster but I figure for the price that I should be able to get what I am looking for out of it.

Anyone have them or know of anyone that has them and if you / they are happy with their purchase ????

Borla is a nice quality system, and if you get the system with the adjustable plates, you can change the noise level to you liking.
Not cheap by any means, but they're done nicely and you'll love it.
Plus you'll pick up some power.

Flowmaster is nice sounding and made decently out of cheaper materials.
Real nice sounding exhaust, but they flow horribly and you won't gain any power.
In fact you might lose power with Flowmaster, hence their nickname "Chokemaster".

I know Corsa makes an awesome sounding system for the GTO. I like the finish and the sound.

I have a Stainless Works exhaust currently on my car. It sounds great but it is not as 'flashy' as other systems.

Edit: check out several manufacturer's sites and listen to clips.

Wow, never knew Flowmasters subtracted power. Now I can mock people that are like "I GOT FLOWMASTERS". I asked my dad what he had on his Firebird when he had it. He said Thrush's. No idea who/what that is.

Edit: Well, I googled, and found this: http://www.tenneco.com/brands/thrush.html

Flowmaster is very popular because it's affordable.
And for the price it's a good value.
And Flowmaster has that unique sound that you can recognize right away, and it's a great sound.

But there are better flowing and performing exhausts out there.

Their delta flow is a REAL good flowing system.

I would be suprised if ANY FLow system has taken power from a combination, now maybe if it was mismatched, but othewise I call BS.

I have a lot to relearn about these cars. You can change the sound by adjusting plates on a Borla? OMG. That is great. With Hondas it's all a game of who makes the best sounding exhaust. No adjustment, you can only pray that you don't sound like an angry swarm of bees in a can.

One more thing I'm excited about now. A good exhaust is my first mod planned.

GMMG is a SWEET exhaust. Also pricey, but well worth it.
With a heads/cam setup, a GMMG is VERY loud, but it's a good loud.
