Alright, I see a lot of people on here have put magnaflow mufflers on their cars. What I'd like to know is why magnaflow was chosen over let's say borla or flowmaster?

I was kind of leaning toward borla, but would like to here the opinion of the forte faithful.

Thanks

i'd go with borla..mangaflow has been having issues with breaking down quickly as of late it seems

also IMO borlas have a nicers (smoother and deeper) sound

I went with the magnaflow cuz it was cost efficient for me to get the results I wanted.

Good Luck! :)

I don't think we have seen any videos with the Cherry bomb or the Borla on our cars. I would like to hear what they sound like.

The cherry bomb takes FOREVER to work in... I didn't like it at all AT FIRST. But now... I absolutely love it!! I don't know why I didn't do this before!

I want to hear your car and Aidens car at a meet some time. I want to change the exhaust eventually but can't decide how I want to go.

I heard those. They sound good, but I would still like to hear his up close. The real thing always sounds different.

I did really enjoy the music for the third video. I think that is what so many videos lack now days, the proper soundtrack.

Completely agreed. I want a dual exhaust... it looks so SICK! And its so easy to just cut out the diffuser to put the second tip in.... and it looks flawless.

I know a bunch of korean ppl make plenty of full exhausts..

Weird question, but our cars don't have th extra "spot" for duel exhuast, or do they? The rear diffuser is different on the driver side than the passenger, which would make it impossible to install another set of tips? Or am I missing something here?

The diffuser is a thin plastic. They just cut it out to match the passenger side. The exhaust piping though gets close to the tire and there is the sensor pack sitting in the way with the NA cars under the rear seat footrest.

I was gonna go with the tk catback, but if I trade in my current koup if or when the turbo model comes out it'd be a waste of a lot of cash, so I'm probably gonna go borla turbo muffler. I like the sound of it on smaller engines over magnaflow, and I can probably buy it and have it installed for less then $250. Now I gotta choose a size.

Should I go 2.25 diameter and 14" long, or 2.25 and 13.25" long or should I go with a 2.5" diameter with either the 13.25" or 14"?
