    Borla Exhaust or Other

    OK, Great - thank you. BYAIC, I am assuming you mean a self tapping ***** ? or a Hanger ? Where do you install that on this system ? Cats ? Muffler ? And you know because it happened to you ? :) Thank you, John

    Borla Exhaust or Other

    Maybe I should start another thread, but have any of you noticed your exhaust systems "Growing" as the car heats up ? My Borla Cat Back, and Partsrack High Flow Cats, the chrome tips are perfectly centered in the exhaust opening on the side panels. Start the car, warm it up, and they "grow" by...

    Aftermarket exhaust question

    Borla, High Flow Cats from Partsrack. I adore the sound of the car. I LOVE it at idle, and while driving. Yesterday, constant grin as I turned up ZZ Top to hear it over the exhaust. Constant grin. A guy on my Prowleronline site advised me to go this route with the 3:55 gears. Could not be...

    Borla Exhaust or Other

    Thanks Arnold - I will absolutely do this. malcoll, yes, there is a bit of drone, but not at any cruising speeds.

    Borla Exhaust or Other

    I have a 2005 Copperhead as well. Put on the Borla Cat back and ordered the high Flow Cats from Partsrack. I love the sound of the car. It is deeper, and has a good rumble. I know the 2005 and 2008 cars are very different, so not sure how it would sound on that car. But the Borla Cat back...

    After about 10 Yrs away, Nothing's Changed.

    Corvette's are cool cars. Like you, I have been away for a long long time. Had two Vipers in the early 2000's. I will say right up front , if you want a FUN group and want to meet lots of fun people (mostly Mopar people - I would classify myself as a Pontiac guy) buy a Prowler. I am serious...

    Wavetrac and Hydra-Lock rear ends - Advice please

    I think it makes sense to just wait - no matter how I drive. My mechanic says that the technology of the Wavetrac is so far superior a, if you plan on keeping the car, wait for the Wavetrac. Thanks! john

    Looking for a Borla Exhaust - Cat back for a GEN III

    Thanks all - I was able to get the Borla from Jegs and it should arrive tomorrow. JonB at Parts rack has a set of custom Cats that I ordered to get rid of Factory. We will see. Someone in my Prowler club had this exact set up and loved it. Hope I do as well - I will report back.

    Wavetrac and Hydra-Lock rear ends - Advice please

    As mentioned in an earlier Post, purchased a 2005 Viper - Found the Rear end to have blown pinion and Spider gears. There have been many posts about this, it is a weak link in these cars. JonB has a used one (Hydra-Lock) for sale, $895, no guarantees but it has been gone through , all appears to...

    Looking for a Borla Exhaust - Cat back for a GEN III

    Hi All - Does anyone know if someone in the US has a Borla Cat Back in stock ? I purchased one from JEGS, but they keep delaying it as it is not in stock and it is shipping direct from Borla.

    Thinking of another Viper

    Thank you, yes, love the Hood and I know he Transmission is far superior. The Engine has more power as well, correct?
