Borla Exhaust

Ive just contacted Borla and they are just perfecting an exhaust for the gcsrt8. they said it should be finished in 4-6 weeks! i think i might hold off and go with the borla.
what do you guys think? wait for borla or go with an already manufactured one??

Re: Borla Exhaust

I have the corsa/mopar. I had borla on other vehicles and loved it. I would wait to at least compare gains and pricing. Minimal gain from the corsa although some members reported dyno increases of 10 to 20hp. At most I picked up a 10th in the 1/4. I invested 1300.00 bucks for a 10th and some sound. I am actually considering selling my corsa. Anyways, good luck!!!

Re: Borla Exhaust

If you expected anymore from a cat-back, then I could have told you to to save your money. Cat-backs by themselves don't do much. They just free up pressure to help other mods.

Just as Corsa is the maker of the Mopar Exhaust for our GCSRT8,Borla is the maker of the Mopar exhaust for the Dodge Charger,Magnum, and Chrysler 300.
As far as expecting more than a tenth or so in the quarter mile,lets face it most of us that change out the exhaust do it for the sound.I had the borla on my Charger and I have looked at the Corsa for my GC.As far as quality and design they are equal.

I love the Mopar catback,but if it gained me anything it was more likely a hundredth not a tenth!! Blackstallion has an '06 with the same mods (CAI, fan mod and 170 thermostat) but without the catback and we both run 12.8 at the same strip same day. I just did not care for the sound in the stock mufflers. Thought it had a "cackle" (shrilly) sound to it. Hell, I don't know the right word to describe the original sound that I did not care for.

Re: Borla Exhaust

i was leaning towards a magnaflow. but now i might wait to see how the borla turns out. borla seems to have the best reputation of all aftermarket exhausts.

Re: Borla Exhaust

Ive been curious if anybody has even just taken it in and had some borla mufflers just welded in, in place of the originals to get some kind of a sound example? Im betting that something like the stingers would just be off the hook with this 6.1....!

That was my original idea for the Jeep quite some time ago, as I've done this to trucks in the past, but it turned out that none of Borla's off the shelf mufflers would fit in the stock muffler location, especially since they don't offer a dual-in dual-out. The only place a pair of cans could go is in the back, replacing the factory resonators. Then all you need to do is replace the factory muffler with straightpipes.

I love the Borla sound more than any other exhaust so I'm sure their catback will be quite nice. I installed a Borla catback on a friends 5.7 Limited (it seems he got muffler envy after seeing my SRT) unfortunately it didn't sound quite the same as the 6.1

Re: Borla Exhaust

I've got a Borla stinger cat-back on my Cobra. Sounds awesome. Hopefully the one for the GC will sound just as good.
