Borla or Magnaflow

I don't know which one I should get.
Performance wise I think the borla is ahead of magnaflow.
But I don't know how borla sounds like?

I'm not getting the TRD because it's too expensive for me right now.

Any advice is thankful!

I have a GTS Magnaflow that I'm quite happy with. It's essentially identical to the TRD but a lot less expensive. I love the sound (combined with CAI and header).

I just purchased the Borla.

My Short Ram doesn't seem that loud when I'm driving and it just sounds like the engine got louder. Maybe the K&N filter could help... but not yet hehe

I got borla because the gains are a little higher and the price difference isn't that much. only 30 more for shipping

maybe you should check out the dynos,

TPR made the most gains for our cars.
TRD is right is about 8 hp less.
Tanabe Super racing medallion. IS 1 hp less than TRD.

if you don't have dynos you could be loosing power for all youknow. TURBO
