Borla atak axle back vs catback

How much difference is there in sound between the atak axle backs and the catbacks?

from what people told me, not a big difference in tone at all. you're paying more to have some nicer looking pipes it seems.

Thank you. I think I'm going to go with the atak axleback since finding used s types is so hard. What mods do y'all recommend after the atak in terms of mid pipes and/or headers?

The catbacks have 2.5" piping as opposed to the stock 2.25".

Go with a slightly larger mid pipe. 2.5" . X or H it's your call. HP numbers between the two are negligible. 2-3 hp difference in top end. Everyone that knows me knows I prefer the H pipe. It gives that car a proper mule car sound by giving it that "burbble". Personally I install a 5.0 stock H pipe and I couldn't be happier having it paired with my Maganaflow Street series axel backs, but to each his own. Aside from that don't worry much about your over axel pipes. The piping diameter is good to over 300 hp to the wheels. Your main restrictions are cats and headers...mainly cats. I will say that beat bang for the buck is getting some new gears and a tune.

unless you want the car to be obnoxiously loud, i wouldn't pair atak's with headers or an offroad x pipe or anything. typically, people who do the exhaust work up front go with like stock, or touring axlebacks bc it's just too much.
