    Re: dual exhaust

    I bought my Borla system form Frank Kent Cadillac in Ft. Worth, TX. He has an aftermarket facility called the Pit Stop. His shop also installed my supercharger - all under warranty!

    Here's a picture of the rear of my Escalade - it's not the best example, though

    Re: dual exhaust

    that's a nice look. but the cheapest i can find the borla exhaust is about 900. and then i'd have to find other mufflers. the borla has one central muffler, did you replace that or did you add mufflers other places??

    do you have any contact info for that dealer??

    Re: dual exhaust

    I replaced the Borla muffler with a single (dual in / dual out) Magnaflow. The Magnaflow is about 2X the size of what the Borla is. Minor treaking had to be made to the Borla pipes to make the new muffler fit, but the end result has been great.

    I think I bought my Borla for somewhere aroung $689...almost 2 years ago. Borla is very proud of their exhaust's!

    Re: dual exhaust

    i do like that look but borla retails it at almost 1200 and 900 is the lowest i've seen it. so if anyone has a better place to buy it, let me know.

    Machine,

    Is the exhaust noise loud in the cabin? I want to put dual side exit exhuasts too but afraid that the cabin will get too loud. I have the 2wd 5.3L so I'm not sure what setup/brand I should work with...

    Re: dual exhaust

    It's no longer loud inside my cab since I installed the magnaflow but it was very loud when I had the original Borla. My Magnaflow resonates a tiny bit in the 3000 RPM range - but the majority of my driving is in the 1900 - 2500 range while on the highway and you can't even tell the Magnaflow is back there.

    Whay don't you get a exhaust shop to custom bend you some pipes simliar to the borla pipes so you can get your own muff and have dual exhaust look?

    Re: dual exhaust

    True that. Order your tips from Borla and install a Magnaflow or something else free flowing (No Flowmaster's, please). The only problems you may encounter are that the pipes won't be stainless and the bends won't be mandrel. You could get all of this done for a few hundred $

    Re: dual exhaust

    I had a custom stainless steel dual exhaust system made for my 00' Suburban using Borla mufflers (that I supplied) that was hooked to long tube headers (which I installed) and it cost an arm and leg, but it was beautiful looking.

    Re: dual exhaust

    The other option I did.

    When I had my 95 Impala SS my first mod was new mufflers. Well instead of ordering a new kit with new mufflers, I ordered the exhaust pipies that where in the kit seprate.I had O'rieley (sp?) order the pipes b/c the carried walker/dynomax exhaust systems. I don't know if borla will just sell just the pipes but call them,
