WK2 - Custom Borla ATAK/S Catback
 
Here it is finally! A custom catback using the Borla ATAK axel back and Borla S resos from a WK1. Sounds AWESOME!!


Some pics:

The factory resonator, it's a straight through design and each side is open to one another through the perforations in the tubing. No internal x-pipe. I didn't get the best pics, but the second shows the lights at the end of the tubing.

Factory section modded to include an x-pipe:

WK1 Borla S resos seprated and roughed in:

Did this to straighten out my tips and center them up. Those that saw my other thread could see how bad my driver tip was:

My replacement driver side pipes includes the ATAK labeling whereas my original first order didn't:

I am using a TailLightSolutions harness to wire the rear fog lights up.

I say go for it! I defiantly gained power with my exhaust mod. Tires are slipping like they haven't before at my elevation, first gear pulls hard all the way through, 0-60 EVIC times are better.
