I have never heard Borla's on a C3, but I have always liked them on other cars.

I've had Borla mufflers before I installed sidepipes. They sound awesome (true duals, shorty headers, no cats)

The previous owner bought the Borlas .... They're listed for a C4 in Ecklers catalog but fit the C3... I think they're $500 for the pair.... for $63 each I doubt that you're getting the same mufflers but if they're stainless Borlas (not a cheap copy) then go for it:thumbsup:

Called the dealer on the Bourla site and thats the price he gave me. I like Ecklers but their stuff is frequently over priced. It seems for Exhause systems most of the vendors are a bit pricy. I have only found the PRO Xs stuff on a couple places tho. I'll go check this guy out, I can't see why a friggin muffler should cost $250 no matter who makes it

Sounds like a good deal to me. All that matters is size, and back pressure. Other than that, they are just poop shoots.:rolling:

The ones in your pic are the C3 version, I had those when they were only available for C4s, they have a shoehorn type hanger (very long and close to the case) and I had to fabricate my own hangers for them but they sounded awesome.

Here is a very old pic LOL, see the hanger on the inside? that was custom :)


Here are some vids:

Click the vids w/ the white 82, it has 2,75" duals, w/ high flow 3" cats, no crossover and the borla ss mufflers.

Hey Marck..... looks like one of us swapped the mufflers left/right - the hangers look very familiar but I had them on the outside to get the mufflers closer to the center .....

I kinda think I should not have sold the mufflers...... :crazy:

I just realized that the shoehorn type hanger was C3, you have them and the white 82 has them also, that's what mad me goof. The C4 just has a sort of tab on the top w/ a keyhole shaped slot in it. That's what I had. You can't swap the mufflers because they come w/ angled inlets. The hangers you see are what I fabricated myself. I sold mine also, dumbest thing I ever did! Sold them to a class a asshole at that!! :down:
