Thumbs up Borla Stingers installed on my 2010 GT500

The brown van came this afternoon and within minutes I was down in the parking garage installing my Borla Stingers (#11777) from American Muscle. Pretty easy install. It took me about an hour including jacking up the car. The toughest part was getting at some of the support bracket bolts with the huge stock mufflers in the way. A 13mm ratcheting wrench made things much easier. Bolting up the new Borlas was a breeze. My right muffler is off center about a 1/4 inch so I need to crawl under and tweak it a little. They do not stick out as far as the stock muffler, maybe 3/8 inch shorter. As for the sound.....they are exactly what I was looking for. A little louder than stock at normal cruise speed with a really nice sound when you blip the throttle from idle. I did not notice any drone in the 1800-2000 rpm range as some people have noted. Mine had a manufacture date of Nov 2010. They sound great, more growl and deeper sounding off idle. Under full throttle they have a similar tone to stock ...but slightly deeper and louder, same with deceleration. Plus they look great. I'm very pleased!!! When I picked my wife up at work she said "That's what a muscle car should sound like!!".

Judging by the garage picture, either you did this at work in the parking garage or you have one huge garage at your house. Anyways congrats, my exhaust will be here today sometime and ill push one of the techs off his lift and borrow it for a few minutes.

I live in condo a few blocks from downtown Vancouver BC and did the mufflers on my back in the parking garage. My tools are in a secure storage locker on a different level. So I have to wheel down my floor jack and tools that I require everytime I do a project. I just keep my jack stands and moving blanket(for lying on)in my trunk.
Property costs in this city are outrageous. A run down pile of crap, fixer upper house close to here will run $650,000+ and something half decent will run in excess of $1,000,000. An apartment in a crack house will cost you more than a really nice house in parts of Texas. Housing costs here are among the highest in North America and they predict gas could hit over $6 a gallon by summer. I love this city....but damn it's expensive to live here.
