    Im about to buy an exhaust and I think I've narrowed it down to Borla...now I can buy the whole catback system for $550 or I can pay $100 for the muffler and $15 for a tip and do it myself...my question is what's the main difference besides $400 bucks and stainless piping? Cause they are both 2.25 pipe. Will my sound or any gains be different between the 2....:confused:

    Just get the muffler, save the rest for beer and more mods.

    i have a borla center in/out you wont notice any gains but you will notice the sound. its not to loud...i had flowmasters on my Tahoe and the borla is MUCH quieter and a completely different sound

    ^ EXCELLENT CHOICE! I have a full 2.5" exhaust with custom piping and an AeroTurbine 2525, finished with a dual SS rolled side exit tip. Best setup I've run yet! Sound is amazing, although I have no dyno, there is what I believe is a modest gain in mid-to-top end which is what I was looking for (highway passing power) around 75-80mph. There is a little lost on the low end, but I wasn't concerned with that I needed the power to be up top because my truck is a long haul highway commuter.

    Got my AT2525 put on and all I can say is this thing screams!!!!! I just got the muffler welded on and now I'm trying to decide what I'm gonna do with the tip...either a turn down over the axle or a tip...what y'all think?

    i also am in the mood to put on a new exhaust, but im finding it difficult to find for 2013. once i do find a site what should i use? Borla, flowmaster? should i use the whole kit, cause i want to have a gain in hp and a nice clean sound without breaking the bank. any help would be great.
