x-pipe w borlas

Want to upgrade my old aftermarket exhaust. I talked to a good friend of mine who used to a own an exhaust shop. He suggested borla mufflers with an x-pipe. Would that sound decent on my 03 V6, or would an h-pipe work better?

Re: x-pipe w borlas

I have always been curious about how borla's would sound....

I have an offroad x with a straight through muffler and well...it's annoying over 3k. I'd suggest going with a chambered muffler if you are wanting something that sounds good.

Re: x-pipe w borlas

Borlas are great. thats what I had when I had my V6. I loved the mellow tone it gave and when you got on it it didnt sound all high pitched like certain other brands make your car sound like
