    exhaust for 2011 cts 2door awd 3.6 liter

    Looking for an exhaust for my 2011 cts 2door awd 3.6liter....thought I found one in borla but my pipes are 2 inch and borla 2 and 1/4....if anyone knows if I can put one on let me know!

    Had ordered an exhaust but the mechanic called me today and said he looked all over and there is no exhaust for my car...I don't see how that can be!

    If someone can point me in the right direction of which exhaust will fit on my car.....ordered a borla that was supposed to be compatible but it wasn't....mechanic is telling me there is not an exhaust out there for my car....help!

    Cadillac Customer Care - warranty and dealership problems - has nothing to do with aftermarket performance exhaust systems. Moved to the proper CTS forum.

    seano33, Please let your original thread work for itself - mindlessly posting separate threads (3 already) on the same subject dilutes advice and keeps members jumping around to find out what has been recommended. Please read the descriptive text in each forum header to find out what is supposed to be posted there. Thanks for the consideration. CF Staff.

    I have the borla axil back system on my 2011 coupe and it sounds awsome. The install was easy, as the new pipes clamp down over the factory pipes. If you have concerns, call borlas 800 number and speak with several of the techs. Or have a muffler shop make quick work of it, mine went on in 1h 20m...

    Have a muffler shop remove your center resonator and swap out the mufflers.

    Is yours 3.6 coupe or the V? Did you have to purchase the aftermarket exhaust frame or how did that work?

    Don't do this!

    I had my local exhaust shop do this and it popped like crazy through first and second gear. I'd describe the sound as marbles in a large coffee can.

    Nice! Do you have pics and/or a video of the sound? Also, if you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for the part and the labor?
