Yeah just met Paige yesterday and she mentioned someone in Rouse Hill. Said your order had gone through to Jeep in Melbourne and should have gone to Jeep US by now. Got to drive a '13 for 1/2 hr on my own which was fun

I read somewhere on here there are 2 Alpines in the hills in the same street?

Hi Gents

It appears we all have something in common
The new 2014 SRT and Borla S-Type exhaust.
I ordered my 2014 SRT in early March and have been told by my dealer that it should be arriving in the next couple of weeks. According to them I'm supposed to be receiving the first 'bright white' SRT being delivered in Qld.
I also ordered my Borla S-Type exhaust from BestExhausts yesterday for $1047.97 incl. GST and delivery to Qld. They are on back order at the moment and should be arriving in Australia in +- 2 weeks time.
If you want to hear the sound of the Borla S-Type on the new 2014 SRT, check out the clips on YouTube. There's a guy in the USA with a my14 SRT showing the before and after Borla sounds. There's also a local guy in Victoria with a my13 showing the sounds of before and after of his Borla upgrade as well.
Enjoy your new SRT guys.
Cheers
Michael

Re: 2014 with Borla S-Type (before and after)

I just wanted to say that as soon as I receive my SRT and Borla S-type, I'll post a before and after video clip for anyone interested to hear the differences.
Cheers
Michael

Re: 2014 with Borla S-Type (before and after)

Recently had the Borla S installed on my 14 GC SRT. I got the S-type based on the video posted in this thread - so thanks to the OP! Some comments:

Install
The install was pretty smooth. Took about 45 minutes from start to finish. They cut the stock exhaust, pulled it out, and put the Borla in. Simple as that. The Borla hooked up to the stock pipes nicely with the exhaust clamps. It required a little muscle to get the passenger side pipe aligned properly on the rear bumper, but nothing too drastic. The drivers side went in perfectly with no real adjustments needed.

UPDATE: The passenger side tailpipe has shifted slightly so the tip is sitting down and to the right of where it should be. I am going to go back to the exhaust shop to see what they can do to fix this.

Sound
On start-up, it sounded killer. Not too loud, not too quiet. The best way I can describe the sound when you rev it is "aggressive sport". It actually sounds like a strong factory exhaust, rather than an aftermarket exhaust. So it's a clean sound, very throaty, but not raspy etc.

When I drove it home, I fell more in love with the sound. Again, it's not too loud, but loud enough that it is a) much more noticeable over stock, and b) sounds like it came this way from the factory. When the car is in gear and decelerating, it's nice and throaty - whereas with the stock exhaust, all you could hear was the motor.

On the highway, it sounds fantastic. It doesn't drone at all, and when the MDS kicked in, it didn't sound a whole lot different from the stock exhaust. One thing I noticed however is that when the MDS kicks on and off, the sound is more pronounced now. Before, I didn't hear much. Now it is more obvious.

Overall, I'm very pleased. Could it be louder? Perhaps, but then I don't think it would sound like a well tuned, factory exhaust.

Re: 2014 with Borla S-Type (before and after)

Sybersport,

Thanks for your description on the s-type, I've been tearing my hair out trying to make a decision on either s-type or the ATAK. Sounds like the s-type is the way to go for me, i want something that sounds like the business but is not overly loud. From what you remember, what difference did it make to cabin noise from the standard, this is my main concern, as i don't want to ruin a comfortable ride for the sake of sound.

Also, is your install from rear axle back?

Cheers

Re: 2014 with Borla S-Type (before and after)

With the windows up, there isn't a whole lot of difference in sound in the cabin. It is more noticeable, yes - you can't get around this since the exhaust is overall louder than stock. But I have a 6 month old baby and a picky wife, and neither of them were bothered by the sound of the new exhaust. As a matter of fact my wife didn't notice I had installed the exhaust until I told her. That says alot actually

With the windows down, there is more cabin noise - but again, not a whole lot different than stock.

And yes, it was installed from the axle back.

Re: 2014 with Borla S-Type (before and after)

Thanks for your reply Sybersport, I have decided to go with the s-type. I found a good
youtube clip presented by David Borla explaining the differences between the two, the s-type does sound quieter but throatier whereas the ATAK is loader and has a more crisp sound.

I tried loading the video but the damn ipad does not allow, if someone could load this video would be great as it best describes the differences and would help all who are contemplating exhaust mods.

BTW, s-type costs $1500.00 here in oz........rip off, will source from the states.
Cheers

Re: 2014 with Borla S-Type (before and after)

Cheers CLS, love them both, tough decision. If I had to choose on the spot I would go with the S-type.
