Had a friend who put one on his Tundra 5.7. Went on beautifully and sounded fantastic. NO DRONE! I couldn't believe it.
Not a HEMI, but it was a 5.7. Hope it works out well for you. Please let us know.
Thanks. robn13

Smile Thanks for the link Moosehead!

But I just assume that any reputable exhaust will sound good, I want to know 1) HP increase, and not at expense of low rpm response, and 2) how it sounds INSIDE the car with the cruise control set to 79. That's what I'm looking for. Any suggestions based on personal experience?

Re: Borla catback

What Ron said. I do a lot of long road trip.. but like a little growl during acceleration.

Ron...i will have to let you know about the 79 cruised but I can say at 65 steady on the highway i heard no noise at all....as for HP im looking about an extra 30hp but whats great about it is the increased throttle response i am getting now wht a difference

There is absolutly ZERO chance you are seeing a 30hp bump simply due to a bolt on Borla. Maybe 10hp but even that is pushing it but 30hp no way no how.
