    Borla Drone

    Anyone own a Borla cat-back system? I'm curious how the drone inside the car is. I looked on YouTube and all I found were videos from the outside and WOT runs on the inside.

    Not the same vehicle but I put a Borla on my Tahoe. That thing droned bad on the highway. Droned enough that I put dynamat all over the interior when I did the stereo. That fixed it but I would not do it again.

    Re: Borla Drone

    I have the Borla system on my car with the off-road pipes (no second set of cats) and the car doesn't drone at all. @ 70-80mph in 6th gear on the freeway it is surprisingly quiet. @ WOT it sounds awesome, I get compliments on it all the time. The only thing it does do that I don't like is it pops and crackles pretty loud in the morning between shifts, which may just be a manual trans deal.
    I think it scares my neighbors

    That is what it is supposed to do. Good product. Great car!

    My Borla doesn't drone. I'm not a huge fan of the sound at WOT or at idle. I wouldn't spend the money on the system again...

    Re: Borla Drone

    I was under the impression Borla doesn't drone. If/when I get an exhaust, Borla is what I was leaning towards. Not so sure now.

    Check to see if there is contact being made between the pipes and the frame somewhere.

    2011 V Coupe with Borla full catback system and zero drone on my car. They really did an amazing job on the V Coupe.

    Re: Borla Drone

    I have the catback system on my V1...no drone at all...

    Great rumble at idle...and not TOO overbearing when WOT.....but bad-ass for sure....

    I'd imagine the V2 Borla would be even better engineered and refined....I'd recommend the company from my V1 experience.....

    Re: Borla Drone

    Sweet I'm glad it doesn't sound like it's going to be a big issue. I ordered one Sunday night off Amazon of all places and it should be here tomorrow so I guess I'll hear it for myself!

    And if you have a sedan, PLEASE post an audio clip. A good sound clip of a v2 sedan with borla is impossible to find.

    I do have the Sedan and I will definitely be posting some videos as it was frustrating not finding any good ones.

    It's out for delivery this morning and I can't wait to get it installed. All for $886 shipped! Gotta love Amazon.

    Re: Borla Drone

    That video above is useless, you can't hear much over the dyno and the echo.

    What part # did you order, gevvvv?
