I've never seen a dyno comparison. One must not be much better than the other or it would be a great sales pitch.

Borla by a long shot. The BBK moves the factory o2 sensor locations and then provides extensions. Those extensions end up causing o2 related CEL's.


Other than that, I'd suggest shorty headers to stay legal and folks have swapped from long tubes to shorty headers and seen no drop off in their 1/4mi times or mph.

Plus I prefer the way shorties sound with a good set of mufflers like the Borlas or GT500s. Nice deep growl Vs. the angry can of bees you get with longtubes and such.

You can be legal with lt, just weld in cats after them.

No that is not Legal, Once you move the Cats from their original OEM location to anywhere else you are breaking Federal Law.
Hence the reason even the Catted X-Pipe for long tubes says for off road use only, Not for use on Pollution Controlled Vehicles or whatever else it might say.
