Just got the Borla S-Type stingers installed. First, easy install considering the cold weather (living in the north east it's a bit cold and icy) but they went on in about an hour and a half with ramps. Starting it up was great and it has a nice, noticeable sound to it. It has a great tone, it's deep but when idling once warmed up it's nice and quiet (great for the Girlfriend Approval Factor).
With that said, normal driving has a nice sound, it's certainly louder but still easily allows me to listen to the radio, talk on the phone, etc. in the car without having to worry. I love the sound when accelerating and shifting, it has a nice gurgle / popping to it which always puts a grin on my face. On the highway though, cruising at 70mph I had no issues whatsoever and it was silent. Quick downshift with some nice sound and you can call attention to yourself, but if I'm just relaxed cruising alone I wouldn't call a ton of attention to myself...well...when I'm not enjoying the engine.
Easily though, worth the extra cost. You can tell that Borla takes pride in their product and builds very high quality products.
I had debated getting the Borla ATAK's, but am glad I didn't. This has a great amount of volume, tone, and character without going overboard (for me at least).
Let me know if you guys want to know anything specific about the Borla's and I'll do my best to give as much info as I can if anyone wants some solid info about these.
Haven't gotten the MGW Race Spec yet, when I spoke with them they said it would hopefully ship this week. Really looking forward to getting it and getting it in the car so I can fix the shifting on this thing. I've had enough weird lockouts and problems with 2nd gear that a nice, high quality shifter will make a world of difference. And it will help when I want to push the car some
If the MGW makes me smile even half as much as the Borla's do, this was the best thing that could happen to this car.
