Default Borla's "Turbo" universal muffler?

I'm thinking of a 2.25" custom catback with Borla's "Turbo" universal muffler for my '04 RS. Does anyone have any experience with their universal mufflers? How do they sound?

I've done a search but all I come across are their headers and the "Hush" model. I'd like to stick with the stock single-tip look for my RS.

This is the place I'd have it done at and a similar setup that I'd put on:

Mighty Muffler

Thanks,
Bill

No experience with the borla but I have a DynoMax Ultraflow universal muffler it it sounds great, also, a friend of mine had some type of flowmaster on his WRX which also sounded good

I had a Techtonics system on my 16v Jetta. It had a Borla universal turbo, sound was awesome,low,mean and pissed off when revved high!!
The system orig. had a dynomax turbo and the baffle rattled loose after two weeks.
I love the Borla, I wish COBB would make a sytem with one instead of the Stromung(nothing against Stromung) I just love the Borla Sound.

On my Wife's car we are going to make a frankenstein setup with 2.5 in pipe and a Borla Muffler. She has an 05 rs.

Won't a "turbo" muffler be 3"? That is what most companies call their 3" mufflers. Something to check into. However, I think that a borla muffler would sound great on a custom setup.

I'm pretty sure the turbo is just the generic style.
