Post borla exhaust sound ??

O.K. pretty much made up my mind on the Borla catback for my 95 L (2.2 auto)
Questions, does it bolt direct to cat or do they supply adapter/flange?
Can anybody else tell me how theirs sounds? I really don't want it to be quiet at idle I want to be able to tell "something" diffrent is under the car.
finally with 80k on the car I'm thinking pain to put on (rusty bolts) would it be wise just to have exhaust shop install? does anybody have helpful hints. thanks

It bolts directly to the cat with the flange they provide. It's kind of a pain to get on because the Borla flange adds a little space between the Borla flange and the cat flange and this makes the flange-bolts with the springs hard to get on. Vise grips might come in handy to compress the springs. I actually cut my flange-bolt springs so I could get them on.

Don't worry about the Borla cat back being too quiet! If you want loud, this is a good system for you. Just try not to get pulled over for excessive noise.

I've had mine for over a year now and have had no problems other than the hangers in the back are a little too loose fitting in the rubber hangers. That's with an RS though, your L might have smaller hangers so you may not have this problem. If you do, just use some small hose clamps on the outside ends of the rear hangers to keep the muffler from sliding to one side. I ended up finding some nice aluminum shaft collars with set screws (which I Loc-Tited) at my local hardware store to replace the crappy looking hose clamps. Looks good, and no problems for over a year with that set-up.

Good luck,
Fred
