Borla or Magna Flow?

Gonna give my boy a new grumble. Just can't decide which one.
I want a throatier exhaust, but not real loud.

I'd say Magnaflow is what your looking for. It's quite when you want it to be and loud when you want it. I have a magnaflow muffler on my truck, I love it. Every Borla I've heard is too loud for me.

Exhaust is one of the toughest things to "recommend" much less make a decision about without hearing it in person first. My vote was Magnaflow. Now I was looking for something a little less "busy" than my stock system w/ no muffs, would give me max flow for my "boosted" application and help me fly below the po-po's radar as best as possible...

I ended up with a 3" Magnaflow Competition Catback.

That being said, I would really spend as much effort as possible to listen to all the clips you can find online AND find someone that has what you're considering and listen to it in person...

The problem with Borla that I read over and over is that it is an all or nothing thing with their setups. Basically 3 of them, one that is as quiet as stock, one that is marginally louder and the Atak which is pretty gnarly according to the masses...

Go to a cruise-in or car show and listen in person to what your interested in. That is going to be the best way to decide.

Borla S type with longtubes all the way

OR if you want to keep your exhaust manifolds and the rest of your factory exhaust but want old muscle car sound then go Borla Atak.

Borla atak and longtubes are LOUDDDDDD

Borla Stype alone will give you throatier as you want but keep in mind if you have a L99/auto you will hear it drop a cylinder with borla the most so get that tuned out.
