  1. Borla........Le Sigh

    My offer still stands on trade. Mine is a dual that exits straight out the back. The truck is a third vehicle so I have no issue taking it down for a week or two for shipping. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  2. Borla........Le Sigh

    I’ll never own anything else but Borla. I’ve done magnaflow and home made and corsa and mbrp and I always come back to Borla. This is my 3rd one. I wouldn’t have selected this system but it was installed when I bought the truck. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level

    The problem with the Borla systems is these pipes: They are welded into the muffler. So to replace the muffler would require having new pipes bent up at an exhaust shop instead of just swapping mufflers. Why they engineered it like that I’ll never know. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  4. I know. My opinion is different than the rest of the site so I must be lying or a troll. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  5. Mine did. Not much of a ride difference between them and the bilsteins. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  6. Completely subjective. Mine rode fine with 116k mile rancho’s and bilstein 5100’s. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  7. I’d gladly get rid of my 18’s for some 20’s. Brand new Michelin’s. For the record, since the day she was born my kid has ridden in everything from sports cars to 3/4 ton trucks for hours on end. Longest was 12hrs to Florida in a 3/4 diesel 4x4. Never even flinched. A stock half ton is a cake walk for a kid to sleep through. Currently 2yrs old and would rather ride in daddy’s truck or daddy’s car than mommy’s explorer. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level

    I’d trade my GM Borla exhaust if you were close enough. Shipping would suck but do able. This thing is to quiet for my taste. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  9. I’m still going with mechanical. Far as we all know the dealer was right in their assessment. Time will tell. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  10. That’s great. Still doesn’t change my opinion. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  11. It’s such a canned response. Someone wants to do some actual engine work and everyone instantly says go the forced induction route. It’s become a cop out. Installing a cam isn’t easy or for the faint of heart but you get to really appreciate what it takes to make an engine live and breathe and thrive. The cam is the brain of the engine. All of the computers in the world and they are still told what to do by that single stick of steel. That stick of steel tells the valves when to open and close and that’s what makes the power. It dictates whether the power comes in early or late or narrow or wide. The computers can assist and aid that in a big way but at the end of the day the cam still rules all. Adding a blower is meh. It’s become so easy to add a 150-200hp to an engine that no one appreciates it. Sure it’s cool but slapping one on and calling it done is so lazy in my opinion. Not to mention that the proper cam when combined with a blower can make even more power.
  12. The internet has ruined hot rodding. Gone are the days of building an engine up naturally aspirated and working up to forced induction. Now, every place you go it’s just “bolt on forced induction” and that’s it. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  13. Several but few here do stuff that in depth. Performancetrucks.net is where you’ll get better answers. This site revolves around towing, leveling kits, and problems. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  14. 4.10 Gears

    You’ll love it. And agreed on the drone. The low rpm and heavy load is what causes drone. Higher rpm with a lighter load will drone less. Of course if you wrap it up to 3000 or so it’ll probably start droning but around 2100-2300 seems to be a sweet spot. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  15. $100 was what I was quoted and it would take a day or two before they got to them. Oreillys compressor for me. Worked fine. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
