I was as giddy as a Walker at a Leper convention! (it's homage to The Walking Dead on AMC, for those of you in the know
This is what I saw Tuesday pm, on the Fedex site as I watched it and was clicking refresh every 15 minutes. LOL.
So I took Tuesday pm off to perform some surgery on Marilyn. Finished the install in about 1.5 hours. After doing my GT500 mufflers the first time, I saved a lot of time by knowing where the bolts are and just how to move the mufflers around to easily access the bolts. I was actually done removing AND installing in under an hour. The extra 1/2 hour I needed was just to align and straighten the pipes out... I had to have EVERYthing lined up and perfect. lol.
Fit and finish were impressive. Definitely higher quality stuff than the GT500's I had on there. The quality of the welds and the material itself was top notch. Installation was a breeze...everything lined up.
Looks-wise, definitely better than my GT500s. The 4.5" opening with rolled tips looks so much more "finished"...like it belongs in those bumper cutouts.
Sound-wise... it's perfect. It's louder and a little bit deeper than the GT500's. It's louder by ~50%...which is exactly what I was looking for. On throttle, they really wake up. It sounds almost smoother than the GT500's? The brap-ap-pap sound is still there from the stock H pipe, but just revving it, it sounds smoother and "freer", if you will. I drove it a total of a 1/2 hour so far, since Tuesday
schedule and weather are not cooperating.
So here are the pics and videos. The first pic is of the "stock" GT500 before I took it off. Compare it to the size and looks of the Borla. I dig the Borla more.

And here are the short vids... I will need to take more.
