Borla Muffler Install

Here are some pic of the old school Borla that I was lucky enough to find on the inter-webs. I must say that this is worth it for the weight savings alone. That old euro-spec muffler weighed way more than I thought it would. Lots of Kroil at the old nuts but they came off easy.


Insure that new gaskets & copper lock nuts are used. The original strap was usable although I did have to move it to the other side of its original mounting point.


I am very happy with the sound, especially the off throttle burble & popping.

nice job on the trimming, I ventured the same years ago and it is a bit of a leap of faith certainly

yaknow Brian B. here sells valances, right? Or maybe they're only FG not tin?

As you may have read here, I've got a maaaajor fixaxtion regarding tailpipe alignment personally... if it were mine, I'd get back in there and get righty out and down a bit, or lefty up and in - likely some combo thereof. Even if it means hack 'n fab. Yeah.

Otherwise, it's BSS (Bad Strippertits Syndrome):



...which is, as we know... Just Not Right.

Smell ya in ~6ish weeks, good sir!

Yeah Paul, Brians are FG & I wanted to install the factory heat shield so i needed a OEM valance.
it seems you are correct they are a tad uneven. I would need to heat the right side & then get it down a bit. Will see if it bothers me as much as it does you. LOL

Problem with a lot of these mufflers is that the tips are not adjustable. Plenty of fabrication was done to mine just to work with the gt35r. Best is to tilt your head the next time you see an uneven muffler...lol. Oh and on the boobs...that's what hands are for..to correct the height.....just busting your chops kid.
