Borla S Type install and after thoughts

Hey all. Installed my Borla S types axel backs last night in driveway.Install took about 4o min. overall great fit and finish and love the sound. Hadmagnapack cat back on my 09 GT. Sounded good but once I put an off-road X to itsounded like hot open *******. Had BBK long tubes on my 02 with a shorty x tomagnaflow cat back which sounded awesome. So far I’m loving every min of theBorla's. Any opinions of how they sound with a catted or off road X?

Only reason I ask is because my 09 was terrible with off road X matched withmagnapacks. Sounded like a really loud kazoo when under load. Also felt likethe X on my 09 killed my low end (yes I had it tuned for it).
Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks, I'll check it out. I wish you could have heard how terrible the magnapacks sounded with an off road x on my 09. I took it off after a week and sold the x pipe on craigs list.

Yessir. Search isawholyfire on YouTube. Also if you haven't got anything yet I am switching from my JBA O/R X pipe to a Lethal O/R H today. Gonna film a direct before and after with my go pro. So might be up later today or tomorrow depending on how things go. Also swapping my rear diff fluid and cover today too.

I can only assume this "kazoo" is a reference to drone. If that's what you're worried about, don't be, the borla is pretty much amazing sounding with zero drone.

As far as tone, the s-types are orgasmic, the only thing that would make it better is if they were mid mounted.

I'll be able to tell you later today. Doing a direct switch. With videos. Go pro is charging and I have to go pick up RTV and scraper for the diff. I love the borla on the X excited to hear it on the o/r h.

No, the Kazoo sound wasnt drone. I know what drone sounds like from old fox days with flowmasters. This was a loud hollow cracking sound mixed with **** and rasp. Either was it was bad. never heard anything like it. Perhpas there was somthing wrong with the x pipe. I dont know. All I know is I've been around Mustangs and other muscle for 20 plus years and never heard anything this bad.

Well I have the video clip of the O/R X with the stingers, a much better one than any of my previous ones. I was much further from the go pro and put the open back on it which picked up the sound much better.

Want me to just upload that and then the H soon as I have it? Or I can wait and upload them together.

well here is the O/R X from JBA and the Borla S-Types. I literally walked outside with the H pipe to jack the car up and go and it decided it was going to rain holy hell. It just stopped soon as this video uploaded. lol.

So gonna take attempt #2 to install this dang thing. But enjoy this in the meantime.

You know you can hold the brake and press the gas at the same time when revving your motor lol

Sounds good though!

I was moving it forward Lol. I wasn't sure how close might be to close to the go pro and so I decided I'd just keep moving and hopefully itd sound fine. Since it seemed OK at all positions wont have to move it with the H.

Got the H on there finally since it stopped raining. One of my 02 sensors was FUBARd by the JBA pipe. Not even sure how to describe what happened. Other than I have to get some bolts to fill the 02 holes tomorrow. Then I'll get a vid up.

Started the car up without the mid pipe on, makes me want cutouts. Holy crap in a bucket was that loud. Love to have that to every now and then piss some people off.

Speaking of, anyone know the 02 bolt size would be? Gonna do some searching but thought I'd ask anyway.

http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=plpp&v=W6Xe6IOq3HI I've got a dyno video of Borla stinger axlebacks, kooks LT headers and their catted boss h pipe dumped. This was with the dumps closed.

Yeah, I found an M18-1.5 trans drain plug that fit perfectly. I'll get a picture up of my one 02 sensor. I'll never buy another JBA product again.
