Thumbs up Installed Borla Header Props too 98mpreziveRS

Just got them put on last night, very nice low tone to them, and I felt power increase too, about 25 to 40 MPH, well worth the money plus I got a great deal, thank you Gary for helping me out with the install, and thank you for the great deal! Sounds clips should be on the way soon.

Im telling you guys to me it sounds like a old 60's Mustang or Camero at least to me its amazing, your probably sayin I dont want my Scooby to sound like a mustang, but when you here this you'll change your mind I was on a very busy street when I picked up my car form the muffler shop I turned it over and vroooooommmmm sweet low rumble, man Im drooling. I will try for sound clips Im not good with computers, but I will try just give me some time.

I agree the sound is sweet. I have the header,midpipe and exhaust from Borla. It sounds like a very nicely low tuned Porsche. It could be compared to a Mustang or Camero, only the tone, the sound is of a boxer engine. I really need to get a sound up so you guys can hear the GROWL of this engine now. That's it, that's what I'm doing tonight.

Did you notice any loss of low-end with the full header-back Borla setup?

No, not at all just the opposite actually. I first got Larrys CAI. With the CAI I did loose a little low end. After the install of the Borla system I completely regained all low hp/lb-T. Most of the gains are higher but acceleration was improved though the whole RPM range, it pulls very nicely all the way up to redline. I'm planing on getting a EGT gauge very soon, as well as a FPR and high flow pump. I know I'm not running correct up top, I can barely get above 115mph. I'm doing another ECU reset this weekend also, I realized after the first ECU reset I never shut the car back off after letting it idle for about 20min. I was so damn excited to take it out and open it up a little. I still love the sound of it sooo much its just perfect for the car and me.
