    Flowmaster vs. Borla

    Discussion started by Pistol - Apr 6, 2004

    Okay so I'm in the market for a cat back exhaust system for my ride.
    Most of my friend's with aftermarket exhaust's have flowmasters. I don't know anyone that has had experience with Borla exhausts so here I am?

    Borla has a single exhaust system that exits along the side in the factory spot which I'd like to keep.

    Flowmaster has dual side exit models as well as dual back exit models.

    But performance wise I couldn't compare.

    I'm looking in our resident grease owl When's direction.
    Also if you could hook up deals with any stores to place does business with let me know.

    Also do you know if programmers that I could buy to get rid of the limiter among other things, cause I cant find any online for the 2003 4.7

    I'd go with Flowmaster because of reputation.

    I had one on my 66' Mustang and it added some horesepower and had great sound.

    "I heard this loud exhaust and I seriously thought it was a dump-truck. I look up trhe road and it's your Mustang." - A friend


    I'm planning on getting another Fowmaster, this time for my 5.9L Jeep.

    i got a flowmaster on my truck. I love it. My little 2.9 actually sounds like it could do something. Be afraid, be very afraid.

    To get rid of a governor you'd probably have to get a new chip for your car. Borla is a much better brand than flowmaster; I thought they only made exhaust systems for corvette's and such, I know that the gains on those cars are incredible. Go with Borla, every old joe has flowmasters.

    personally id go magna flow

    one dodge we did had a flowmaster on it, and it sounded like ass
    could have just been the setup though

    anywho, on all my vehicles i only run magna flows
    i have never had a problem with them and they have a good tone

    as far as borla im not sure
    i know they make nice stuff
    and a friend has one on his cavalier
    but i dont know much about them

    and by the why this isn't to make the truck some finely tuned power truck just trying to make it a bit more efficient.
    if I wanted pure HP I would forked over the extra 800 for the Hemi.
