If that price is just for the muffler, forgetaboutit. Your paying for a name. You can do much better for a fraction of that price. What sound are you looking for.

I wouldn't use a Borla unless you were going for something like an all stainless System for a Show Car. A muffler in itself is not going to net you any power gain. Flowmaster, Dynomax, Magnaflow, Walker, and others can deliver you a quality muffler with a sound you want for a lot less than Borla.

alright thanks, like everybody else says its hard to give a preferance on a muffler sound because everybody has a different preference. i would like the loadest rumble to the point before it gets to annyoying(keep in mind i am 16 so our loads may be different) so im probly going to want a pretty damn loud muffler. is 95 shipped a descent price for a magnaflow? what other brands give a nice load rumble sound? sorry for all the questions.

I've got Magnaflow'* and like them. I've had Borla on other cars and though they sounded too raspy. They do look good though!

Each has it'* own subtle difference. All pretty decent sound, All are good in the rumble Dept. If you want loud on the border of obnoxious, a straighthru glass packed Bullet style muffler is what you want. Prolly the cheapest way to go as well. But straight thru'* do rasp, especially at WOT. A lot of Bonneville owners have posted vibrations under the car with all out loud mufflers.
