The BORLA(R) sound of power. Its been described as asonic shot of adrenaline. An intoxicating concert ofsteel, gears and combustion that echoes from thespeedways, deserts and highways of the world.The sound of more victory laps than any otherbrand, the BORLA(R) exhaust note has become the quintessentioal soundtrack of high-performance motoring. And like all good automotive designs there is function behing the form. As any driving enthusiast knows, the sound of an exhaust provides more than just ear candy. Its a communications conduit between car and driver. A link between human and machine. The exhaust sound provides accoustic feedback of engine rpm to aid the driver in critical decisions such as gear selection or throttle input in rev-match shifting. At BORLA(R), we understand this concept better than any exhaust manufacturer. Combining patented technology with computer modeling, extensive prototyping and advanced sound analysis tools. BORLA(R) engineers spend countless hours tuning exhaust systems to best reflect the personality and performance of vehicle applications. The result is an enhanced driving experience. With unrivaled clarity, the BORLA(R) exhaust note can help a driver stay within the powerband through a difficult section, using the exciting sensory feedback of sound.

What made you choose this particular product?
Price, reputation and overall quality.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
This is my first borla set up, I did consider other options but the prices were just too much. I plan to pack on some more power, which will most likely require my exhaust to be re done. This saves me some money but gives me the reward of hearing the v8
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Welder is required, but yes it is pretty straight forward.

What made you choose this particular product?
I wanted the most aggressive sound available, but I didn't want to sacrifice on sounds quality. Borla made sure I improved the expected mustang sound, rather than replacing it like some exhaust brands.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
First time buying from Borla, but I more or less never considered another brand once I found them.
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Not too bad if you know what you're doing. And I don't care what the instructions say, you will HAVE to unnoticed the motor mounts lift the engine slightly. Other wise you won't be able to maneuver the header in on the passenger side.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Not just met, but absolutely exceeded my expectations.

This is not my first time buying from borla because it's an amazing exhaust company.

I had it professionaly installed because I don't want to break it.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
