    Re: Best exhaust option

    Interesting. And thanks in advance. I really appreciate it. And I understand the tips are rolled on the edge right?

    The borla version is an angle cut with a rolled tips. I wonder if the angle cut allows the hot exhaust to rise up and into the bumper instead of a straight cut which wouldn't allow the exhaust to rise up until it has passed the bumper. Or maybe just the size of the tip. Oh well.

    Thanks again.

    Re: Best exhaust option

    I think pre-cat would be rather hard to do...
    but I've not heard of anyone installing cutouts on the STS V or otherwise.

    I want to move the cats down stream so i can make room for the extra piping. the pontiac g8 cats were very tucked up like the sts-v's and i was able to delete the cat and put the cutouts in.

    Re: Best exhaust option

    The tips are angle cut and rolled edges. They do look straight if you are looking at the exhaust from behind the car but seen from side at eye level there is slight angle. I will take the exact measurements tomorrow when there is more light in the garage because the difference in the long end and short end is minimal and looked 4" to me all over (may be the because of the smaller angle)

    Re: Best exhaust option

    So I'm actually going to drive up to ohio this weekend and pick up the gmpp borla that pj is selling on the other thread. I'm going to try to return the borla exhaust. Sorry I'm not gonna be the one to experiment with replacing the 5 inch tips with 4s but I'm confident that's a good solution. I'd just feel better with the 4 year gmpp major guard on the car if I had the gmpp and luckily this came up.

    Re: Best exhaust option

    I tend to be pro Magnaflow. I don't care for Borla at all. IMO, it sounds like someone filled a tin can with rocks, then shakes the can. You don't need obnoxious tips either. Quad tips look too damn busy, much less making them "squarish". Our car is a subtle, classy looking car! Our bumper cover is a half-round hole. Fill it with the proper tip and it will look great.







    Under car shots (after I re-high temp heat painted them late last summer. I do this usually annually as Magnaflow likes to surface rust, which you can see on the resonator in the second pic)




    The tips are Magnaflow, double walled, slash/angle tips. I think many of you have viewed my exhaust videos up on YouTube. If not, look up CMNTMXR57.

    How's the drone at 70-80 with the magma flows?

    None at that speed. There may be a little at 40'ish, but nothing bad for me anyway. Wife hates it, which is all the more reason I like it. She doesn't like anything louder than a kitchen appliance.

    Get her a knock off kitchen aid stand mixer or even a real one... They can be pretty loud. Fill the bowl up with some nuts and bolts and crank it to max speed. I wonder if that would be louder than the car

    Re: Best exhaust option

    Oh, she has her LOUD utensils too and I don't complain. So I tell her to "shut it" when it comes to my cars.

    She's just very "pedestrian" when it comes to cars. She really wants no frills, basic, point A to point B vehicles that offer no muss/fuss.
