Installed Borla today

Just finished Borla install. I must say does sound better after 5 minutes of driving it than I thought. But a couple thoughts. I don't like that the pass side needs a lot of tweaking that i could not achieve here at home. I'm going to have to bring it in to center it on the cutout.

Also after install I removed the bubble wrap on the tips and found a nice chip on the edge. As soon as I touched it more chrome kept flaking off. Now I did call Simmitt and they said they will send another set out so now I have to install again. Overall, I would say it sounds way better than stock but Borla could have designed the hangers a little better for fitment. The hangers at points barely hold the stock rubber grommets.

Even my girls were helping me...lol

Re: Installed Borla today

is that an Atak or the S type?

and kudos on starting them young but you have no excuses for not posting a drive by video, give the girls the keys, and make sure to tell them to have it on sport (or track) lol

Re: Installed Borla today

Mines taken some tweaking but nothing that couldn't be done at home. Just some loosening of the clamps then shoving the muffler around a bit and some ingenuity on how to keep it from moving back before I tightened the clamp. My problem side was the driver side pipe. The tip still sits about an 1/8 of an inch lower but not to noticeable

Re: Installed Borla today

Couldn't get the pass side to fit evenly for nothing. The drivers side was vibratiing because the tip was hitting the valance but nothing the old foot in the pipe couldn't fix. Maybe when I get the replacement set the pass side will fit better.

My drivers side tip sits a little lower but is centered. black powdercoat with a black bumper makes it less noticeable from rear.

Re: Installed Borla today

Just checked this morning after install and the pass side that I was talking about while in the driving mode made contact with the valance and melted it a little. I pulled it out again today and spent another 2 hrs with it looking for the best bending of the hangers just to not let this happen agian while I have another shipment coming tomorrow. As I tweak the drivers side the pass side moves. I had to rig it until the new set comes so as I drive it to work tomorrow nothing more ruins the plastic. I love the system but IMO just not designed right as compared to my other 4 Shelby's axle back systems.

Re: Installed Borla today

Do the tips come apart from the piping? I want to have my tips powder coated.

Re: Installed Borla today

Damn, ok thanks. Guess I will have to hopefully just drop ship to the guy I want to powder coat and then he can ship to me.
