Hey guys, i wanted all your opinions on which exhaust i should get and its between the UUC "System U" or the Borla Cat-back.

Which one is the quietest of the two and which one has a deeper tone?

Again i dont want something very load.

Thanks guys!

UUC is definetely not very loud, and it's pretty throaty at the same. I've never heard a Borla though so I couldn't say.

Ive heard people say that Borla's make the engine sound like a Porsche, so if you can imagine what a 911 sounds like, that might give you a good idea. But this is just word of mouth, never actually heard one.

exactly how loud is the UUC, I'm interested in getting one soon and since you mentinoed it not being very loud, I don't want something thats just as loud as stock. Is there a place that has recordings of exhaust sounds?

Check out UUC's site..I think they have some soundclips. However, I wouldn't rely too heavily on soundclips posted online...it all depends how close the recorder is to the exhaust, how loud they set it up for the site...it's very unreliable.
