There are a million different exhaust systems out there. Just pick a good one you trust.
I installed a Borla Stainless DTM on mine. I was concerned it would be too loud, but was VERY pleased with the result. It is very throaty and sounds like horsepower, not a coffe can fart cannon that I hear around town. Like i said, there are many good ones, but I trust a name like Borla, and was very happy!
To be honest, I had a performance group prepare my car by the name of Zionsville Autosport (performed an engine swap, exhaust, ECU remapping, aero kit, etc.) I will contact them tonight and hopefully have the supplier by tommorow.
Jason from Z Autosport informs me that the exhuast was ordered direct from Borla. It was nothing specially made or anything, but due to their slightly higher cost than a lot of others, most performance products retailers don't stock them.
Drop Borla a line and order one, you wil be thanking me every time you mash the pedal!
No, it's actually not similar. Don't get me wrong, AA makes great stuff, and if you want a more subdued sound, that would be a great choice.
The Borla is much more aggressive. People follow me until i park just to ask what I have under the hood (no joke). It is louder than the AA (almost too much so), but at speed it is virtually silent. It only growls under acceleration of decceleration.
If anyone is smart and can give me some suggestions as to how upload a video/audio clip of my exhaust, I would love to do so. I have unlimited resources for capturing devices (I was thinking of one of those E-wear things from Panasonic), I mean unlimited (I'm employed by a consumer electronics company and have all their products at my disposal).
So should i go with the E36 Generation 3 High Flow Exhaust.... i want a nice deep sounding exhaust too...so would it be a good buy.... Any other exhausts you;d might advise thats not so loud but has a nice deep sound?
