Just to be fair, there have been no dynos of the Magnaflow either. At least not from a customer. I think a magnaflow rep posted a dyno of their 2nd version for the SVT which showed decent power gains, but I've not seen a customer dyno of the magnaflow.MagnaFlow has around 5hp and 5tq across the board. Borla claims 7hp, but I haven't seen dynos on there's yet. I have magnaflow and like it, but I haven't heard Borla's in person, just audio files.
Here is one thread that has a sound clip from GetImpact with the Borla exhaust:Nice...I was gonna post a similar thread...I've been looking all around for those sound files of SVTs with the Borla...especially the Borla/ORP combo I've read so much about. If some one can point me in the right direction...it'd be great...thanks...
I have had both on my car. The lunch box out is "rice". It is not even fair to compare the two. The lunch box being cut off is cheap sounding, which is exactly what it is. I dont know if the Borla sounds like 500 bucks, but in my opinion is the best sounding exhaust for the SVT. I have heard them all in person. Borla has the deepest tone, and that tone doesnt really change through the rpm range, unles you have the orp. After the Borla breaks in and you have the orp the tone does change in the high rpms, but is still a sweet sound!Has anyone heard a stock exhaust with the lunchbox cut out AND the borla catback in person?? How do they sound relative to one another???
I'm gonna call BS on some of that.You guys know the Trubendz is finally out too! There a couple posts on it in MyFordFoucus, and two movies. Im looking at the 2.5 stainless w/Borla muffler. It sounds great, should make the same or more power then the real Borla and is only $295!!
I know its all stainless but i have no idea if its T304. It only has one borla muffler, and to me Borla is Borla. They don't make [censored] stuff.I'm gonna call BS on some of that.You guys know the Trubendz is finally out too! There a couple posts on it in MyFordFoucus, and two movies.

The full Borla Catback for SVTF comes with beautifully tuned resonators, for one thing. T304 stainless construction throughout for another (does the Trubendz have that).
In the clips I heard it sounds like exactly what I want. Thats not to say that everyone else will agree though. Its only one muffler, thats it, so it is loud, but its still very low and didn't sound ricey at all. With an ORP, yea, it will be VERY loud and probably pretty buzzy, but im not going the ORP route for a variety of reasons, so this is perfect for me.Thirdly, the sound and performance of the real Borla catback is well-composed even with other exhaust mods (cat-delete, etc.)
I couldn't find a 3in version of the Borla! Maybe I'm blind...I don't see how it could make less power than the Borla unless it has some crazy restricting bends, since it only has one muffler as opposed to a muffler and resonator and is the same size. For me this exhaust is a no brainer. You can also get it in 2.25 and 3 inch versions, with Borla, Flowmaster or Magnaflow mufflers. More info here: www.trubendz.com
