Hey i have had the borla on my car now for about a week. I purchased it under the impression that it would be very loud because that is what i have read. When driving the exhaust is just slightly louser than the factory one. Has anyone had this experience and if so what did you do? Also if you have the borla how does yours sound?? Thanks alot for any input

It's loud enough to be noticed, but quiet enough to not draw the attention of the police.

I'm going to put a race header on in the future so I know I'll draw attention.

Sometimes stealth is better.

Yeh, the exhaust has a sort of "break in" period, the sound will change slightly and will get a tad louder.

If you want loud, then go for a race header, OMG

yeah, i have a borla on mine. it came stock, so i dont know how loud it is over a real stock ZX2. its not the loudest muffler to get tho. i have a full length header on now and with the borla i can set off car alarms. borla was built to be quiet.
