Which Borla???

Has anyone heard both Borla systems? (Touring and "S").

I'm going with 1 7/8" AR Headers w/cats and 3" pipes back to an axle back Borla system. I was originally going to go w/ the "S" system, but after hearing some complaints about drone...so, I'm leaning towards the Touring system. I don't want it obnoxiously loud and want as little drone as possible...just want it to sound mean.

Sooooo...has anyone heard the Touring system?

Yup, tried that. The only "touring" sound clips I could find were on 'vettes...but they sounded pretty good.

I saw a bunch of camaro clips of AR headers w/ STOCK mufflers...they were plenty loud for me...so I'm thinking the "touring" system will be fine.

The systems borla offer are the "S" (stingers) and the "Touring". Both have mufflers, "S" is louder.

I still don't know which to buy...looking into magnaflow street series now as well.

ARH is a quality header...I was pretty impressed, they are beasts. I would think you can order just the headers, but for fitment issues, I'd get the whole package. You can get them w/ or w/o cats. If you get the mid-pipes, you can just go with an axle-back exhaust.

is ARH 3"?
wanted to do as much 3" back as possible..
stainless steel works makes a 3" header but don't know how good they are with HP gain...
Future plan supercharger 3" really help it breathe then..

YES...ARH's mide pipes/xpipes are 3" all the way back and end into 2.5" for use of stock mufflers. The actual headers come in 1-7/8" and a smaller version(1-3/4").
