Would you be interested in selling your Borla system? :laughing:

The Corsa system is more expensive, anyone know where I could get a deal on them, or find them cheap? I've found a new Borla system for $500...

Put Borla cat back system on my 95. They drone a little at 50-60 mph but clear up at higher speeds. Then again, I am very used to loud exhaust :laughing:

I like the sound of the Borla as a "spirited driver", but on the highway I would much prefer the Corsa with no drone.

My 2 cents worth: You must remember that you will be sitting inside the car, not outside. So, your main concern should be how loud it is inside the car. Taking a ride in a car that sounds good outside but has an enormous amount of resonance inside is equivalent to torture. I am not talking about the exhaust noise you hear from outside the car when you roll down the windows. Its a deep resonance or "drone" that usually manifests itself at cruising speed. :huh:

I have a convertible, so I usually have the top down, and a 6 speed so I can control my rpms somewhat. But, if the drone is still ridiculous on the Borla I think I might go with Corsa.

Where was that sound clip of the Melrose system?

If you are going for a budget exhaust system Melrose isnt the way to go. Extremely HIGH quality product. But you pay for what you get!

storm: theres a couple of clips of the melrose system in the thread on the bottom of the technical/general section of c4's. the thread says mesrose system or somthing. the links will be in there.

i think it sounds freakin sweet:thumbsup: , but maybe a lil high pitched.

could anyone that has a borla or corsa system put a clip of the start up and rev on here? i've never heard either of those systems...:D
