My driveway is a steep grade and it is annoying everytime you get on the gas and the car won't move until you have enough to overcome the hill holder.

Hill holder just makes me feel like I will wear out the clutches in the tranny faster if I keep it on so I don't use it.

My 12 doesn't roll near as much as my Mom's 11 and I turned it off in hers too and she doesn't need it either.

I am so accustomed of using both feet on the pedals

Re: Borla Exhaust on my Hemi

So is this a Cat-Back, or just the mufflers?

Hopefully this will be good for you in the long term.
You must have had the model that ends in 125 cause the 112 was tame on my Magnum

Could've been, but it was bad. Ultimately, they sent two annular resonators. The first did nothing, but the second tamed things quite a bit. However, I still regretted it.

Not saying that it's necessarily an issue with the OP's exhaust--it sounds great on line--but it's an issue I've heard raised fairly often with respect to Borla exhausts.

I'm guessing the 125 is what you had. Much louder than the 112. That surprises me.
I have had many different company catbacks over the years and Borla has always been the most tame from a sound perspective. My '86 SVO Mustang Borla system that I bought from them in '87 did not fit worth a darn and I had to go back to the stock system.
