My Canon camera just stopped working so heres a pic from my phone. This thing is a blast to drive!

Only flaw is a little piece broke off of the surround of the bottom grille. I might powdercoat or plasti-dip the grilles but for not Im happy just the way it is! :) Other than that, this V is in pristine shape.

The only mod the previous owned did was add a LPE intake. It sounds pretty good at WOT and sounds really good inside the car but outside its pretty tame with the stock mufflers so Im doing a muffler swap but Im keeping the resonator. I was looking at buying the Borla XR-1 sportsman or the Borla turbo. Ive had too many Magnaflows on my Tundra (18" & 14"; 4" Magnapack) that I sold so I want a different sound.

Even after looking at all of the youtube videos of both for months, I still cant decide. I might just have to flip a coin and go with it. :)

Does anyone know what muffler would be the closest sounding to the one in their catback kit....the Pro XS (tubro) or XR-1 sportsman?

Maybe one of these days but for now Im just going to do a muffler swap and give it a few months, Im sure I'll want it louder at some point. :)

muffler delete. Can't go wrong there. Then when you get headers your gonna shit ur pants. Then your gonna shit your pants more when you put an x-pipe in. Oops...... forgot we cant cuss

Plasti dip the grill. Going on two months now with multiple washes and no chipping or peeling. It's great stuff for $7 a can
