Love my new Borla Exhaust on my 732rwhp 2011 SS
So as you can see from my signature, I have a whipplecharged 2011 2SS with a PFAFF Racing Engine.
I had been running a "cheap and cheerful" 3" exhaust that was poorly made, way too loud. and always slipped and needed readjusting. In fact I added some 12" resonators in desperation to try and quieten it down. Helped a bit ... but still droned like a pig.
I have never liked overly loud exhausts ... I prefer a refined sound ... my perfect example is a Maserati ... sedate on idle, with a raw aggressive sweet V8 growl on acceleration. I learned that this is not easy to do on 732rwhp.
So after procrastinating and listening to all the different sounds on youtube (none of which really do them justice) ... I went for a Borla 3".
WOW! It is absolutely perfect - exactly the sound I have wanted from my last four V8s ... and never achieved because I was a tight *** and never wanted to part with the cash when I could get something that kind of did the same thing for cheaper.
Here's the youtube video of idle and kind of sedate drive off ... trying to avoid wheel spin, but not having that much luck.
